The Eyes of the Creator and the Beholder
"Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen."
Reality for each person is often based on feelings and emotions. Everyone has a slightly different outlook on what is truly happening or trying to be conveyed.
Art replicates this phenomenon by leaving the interpretation up to the eyes of the beholder. A painting viewed today that is perceived to be bold may come off as meek the next. The meaning can change based on experiences and emotions.
Therefore, art without admirers is like a person without purpose. It is made to be viewed, interpreted, and appreciated by those who seek to find understanding or resolve. It is a therapy to create and a therapy to decipher. Through a single image, the artist and the viewer are connected in a unified experience of emotion, entrapped within the painting.
