Art’s mission is not to copy nature, but to express it. We must, as artists, capture the spirit, the soul. Make things, which are outwardly “dead”, come to life. Art acts on sensitivity and, therefore, can only act through sensitivity.
Reluctantly raffling the passing of the hours, days and years, we should allow ourselves the free use of moments to get closer to that opulent garden that emotions offer us, that pleasure that any artistic manifestation boasts.
What really excites and fascinates is not only a vision, it is the perception of that vision. I don’t think we retain details, and if we do, we unconsciously correct them to adorn them to the point that they will transform into something else, it will be like a dream in a dream, in which the original will be transfigured.
Mathematical calculation will never produce artistic results. Measurements and scales are not outside but inside the artist.
Reflection, evaluation and correction are part of every creative process. It works on a trial and error basis. The painter, in this case, arrogates to himself in the corner of his own serenity. Emotions are harbored in retreat.
The contemplation of an art work, the light, the color, the gesture allow us to experience the joy of being flooded by true emotions. The artist tries to discover a heightened statement of emotional tension.
Works of art take us to personal places, moments and stories. They have great evocative potential and place us at the emotional epicenter of the human being.
