Up to this point fine art has been explained in furious detail from several different perspectives. Seen from the eyes of the artists themselves and the art viewers alike many questions have now been answered except for one. What does fine art hold for you?
In one way or another, fine art is integrated into our daily lives whether we are aware of it or not. Art is apart of everyone. Some realize it and others don’t. Most accept that fine art has a meaning to the majority of the public but not necessarily for themselves or they have an appreciation for art but they don’t know how they should feel about art on a more intimate level. Of the latter of the two they just don’t know where to start so let us see what can be done about that. It’s understandable that with all the questions, curiosity and wonder swirling around in your head that confusion sets in but no worries it can be made sense of. Try starting with identifying what art pieces that you love the most. Chances are in some way or another they all have something in common. Remember that this similarity isn’t always so literal. If the subject matter isn’t always the in the same boat then look a bit deeper. Maybe the attracting factor is the color palate. Are the colors deep and rich creating a subdued tone or are they bright and vibrant creating a loud statement? Is it the depiction of the art itself that is appealing or perhaps it’s the emotion that it conveys? First thing is to answer these questions and start with that. Then from there identify what is familiar to you about the pieces. A strange statement, makes sense, let’s put that in a different light. As we all know artists share their emotion with the world through their artworks. Is it really that much of a flying leap to say that the viewers who experience the same emotions that are being depicted in the art will not only recognize it but be drawn to it? Think about it, what is the majority of your driving force? Those who’s answer is emotion would be correct. Nothing draws people in faster than shared emotion. If you need a second opinion go ask an artist, they’ll tell you the same thing. So to recap, ask yourself what is it about these pieces that draws you in and chances are the answer will be something to do with the emotion of it.
Now that you have a place to start to figure out your own unique perspective on art take some time to give it a shot. See if you can’t answer some of those questions yourself and see where the answers will take you. The key to understanding what art you are drawn to is unlocking the emotion behind not only the art but also the emotion within yourself.
