Art Brings You In a Kaleidoscope World
Beads, pebbles, colored papers – what is great about these things?
Think about it. When you see beads, pebbles and colored papers lying on a floor, what do you feel? What do you think of them? Nothing. You’ll say, “Huh? What’s so special about these things?” Yyou might even think of them as some thrash, and they need to be thrown away. Now, try to lump them up together, and place them in a container. What will you think of it now? Well, still nothing, right? I mean, these are just ordinary things - nothing so great about them. So, why waste our time talking about these meaningless things?
Why? Because, in truth, these are not really meaningless as you think it is. These are “something”. Ponder on this: What do you think makes a Kaleidoscope work perfectly and enables it to project such spectacular images that would turn your world upside down? Well nothing but those garbage you are referring to.
Art works just like that. It transforms seemingly unwanted and unnoticed things into something grand and magnificent. Art is like the lens that would enable you to see something beyond what human eyes can perceive. It is the only perfect instrument that can bring out the magic and enchantment within things. It spices up the world; it adds color to the grey and dull world we used to live in. Art is everything. Art is magic.
Art – what are the things that shaped my concept, idea and definition of it?
Ever since I was a child, my parents indulged and immersed me in art. At first, it was more of a “forced immersion”, but as time passed by, I learned how to appreciate it. I even looked forward in attending my art classes.
I had art classes for using different media such as oil pastel, pencil, charcoal and watercolor. These has all influenced and molded my perception of art. All those time spent made me appreciate art even more. Unfortunately, they did not develop my skill in drawing, sketching and painting, but this all due to my being naturally not gifted in those fields. But I don’t believe that I’ve put everything into waste, because although they may not be helpful in enhancing (better yet, forcing out) my skills, I learned a lot about art. This may explain why I’m doing well in using Adobe Photoshop.
My Artwork on the Role of Art in Nature!
The beauty of nature – what’s the role of art?
As a nature-loving person, I see how important and beautiful every creation in this world is. Unfortunately, not everyone sees nature this way. Some people think that there’s nothing special about it, while some don’t even care at all. They tend to ignore the truth about the beauty and grandeur of nature. That’s why they need to have their eyes (as well as their minds open, so that they could find out the truth themselves). And this is where art comes in because art could be the “lens” that will enable them to vividly see the magnificence of the environment.
In this artwork I made (using various techniques in Adobe Photoshop), I visualized nature as something magical. Thus, I’ve made it look like a dream world – a fantasy. But although it seems to deviate from reality, it apparently does not. Through the art, I want people to know that the enchantment is already out there, all we need is to embrace it.
Like I said, art is a kaleidoscope that has the power to transform our perception. If we start seeing nature as something extraordinarily beautiful and bewildering, people may start to take care of nature more, and try to protect it, unlike today that we seem to be selfless in taking advantage of nature that leads to its continuous depletion.
Thus, through this art, I’m attempting to remind people to see things (especially nature) with passion, and to perceive things with “art”.
