A visual language
My dear readers,
I would like to speak today about an intriguing modern current, which fascinates by its incomprehension and its capacity to provoke interpretations and motivations diverse among all observers: abstract art.
This art, which appeared at the beginning of the 20th century, has been subject to controversy, since we can not link these works to the creative genius or to an exaggerated laziness.
It is also the art of all paradoxes, its definition an oxymoron: painting an abstract image, having no evocation of observed reality. It is nevertheless a visual language of emotion and is today considered a major current of modern art.
I find fascinating the way science, evolution and knowledge influence Art. Indeed, in this case, the appearance of theories of quantum physics and the theory of relativity will have modified our perception of reality, the artists thus transcribing their talents in a new way.
Kandinsky and colors
As a good art and painting enthusiast, I love going to the various exhibitions of the Galleries of Belleville and the Marais and watching the works of young and less young artists who have followed this trend.
There are paintings from all walks of life, each with a hidden meaning to be discovered. It was by observing these works that I was tempted to meet an abstract painter and question him in order to understand his approach, his motivations and the construction of his art.
If only I could one day attend a demonstration or watch an abstract painter at work, it would be such a pleasure.
My dear readers, Kandinsky, one of the first abstract painters, said that « colors are the manifestation of memories ». He had seen true, we all have our own perception of colors and our unique memories that we wish to keep deep in our eyes, deep in our hearts.
See you soon!
