So today I offer a different type of post then what I normally create. This post is a question for you to explore….
Who is your favorite Artist and how does their expression of art speak to you?
This can be an individual or a group working in any medium, it can be a Painter, Sculptor, Dancer, Performance Artist, Vocalist or even a Writer.
Post your answers/comment in the comment section under this post.
My response is although I have many artists that I pull inspiration from. I always have a favorite, lately it has been René Magritte ….and why
I am very drawn to the surrealism painters and more specifically René Magritte. I find his use of common object presented in a dissimilar setting opens a door for individuals to explore how one can view the world through different eyes. This asks the individual to investigate how the particular placement expresses ideas/ concepts using what is visually presented. It creates an opportunity for a dialog about how we all perceive things differently, because of what we bring to the moment. I also like the fact that often these paintings encompass more of a dreamscape reality. This is something that I strive to convey in my paintings I like that fact that my work causes people to ask questions and maybe view something in a different light then they did before. There is nothing wrong about asking questions. It is a wonderful way that we can learn more about each other.
So now it is your turn, tell me about your favorite Artist.
