Artistic Insights #writephoto

Maybe you can show me
Maybe then I can know
Why my spirit wails
Why I feel tired
Worn by the trials of this life
Why I can’t see the good
Without remembering the bad
Maybe if you try
You can show me who I am

1940 Joan Miro

Paint me
Colour my soul
Curve out all emotion
Weave your hand and splay my essence
Draw deep
Show my sparkle and shade my gloom
Turn me round, see it all
Joys and despairs
Displayed

Gray abstract artist
Dispassionate in your ways
Perceptive to all
Crafting cubes with multiple views
Deep fears and aching desires

Sean Safarlou

My soul falls upon the canvas
Now I can see through the rain
Now I can see me

  5. Shapes change with placement of surfaces. Guess the concepts of emotional engineering and emotional intelligence emerged from here.

    1. That makes sense. I also read that this form is used to show all sides of the subject in one piece and I drew on that mostly for inspiration

  16. Separate, yet cohesive. The last image of the cubes reminds me of the art puzzles where you had to sort of cross your eyes to see the image… I wasn’t very good at them. But I could find the umbrellas! It reminded me of a famous street painting of people in the rain.

    I am also amazed at how some artists can take photographs of peoples faces (hundreds) and then morph that into some recognizable image when it is far from you. You have to be really close to see the details of the faces!

    1. Yeah Jules, I was actually nervous writing about art coz it can be complex but being on WordPress and encountering artists that juxtapose Poetry on their work has made it easier for me to be brave and interpret art because of its close relationship to poetry

      1. Art can be poetry with a paint brush …
