The mirror of our life; Art.
Hello lads and old-lads..
So, uhmm, someone told me I had to write about my love for "art". And to be totally honest, I have no idea how to write about such a thing as art. Art isn't a thing to write about, art is something to look at, and use your imagination.
Well, I guess first of I have to explain the titel of this blog.. It's just something I find quite poetic, but it doesn't really fit in modern life anymore in my opinion. 100, 200, 300 years ago, art was like the camera is for us. Artists got hold of the past with their paint and skills, like we get hold of the past with camera's. Art is a mirror to another world, a world in the past. And so are photographs. They make it able for us to look in the past. And so are paintings.
I myself want to be an artist too, but not such a crappy artist as most artists are nowadays. I mean, a blue canvas with a yellow line through it is called art already, even child drawings are called art. 100 years ago you REALLY had to have skills to call yourself an artist, now you just have to own some paint and you're an artist already.
But I won't say all art is crappy nowadays. For I like Jackson Pollock and Gris Grimly. You people should check Gris Grimly out, he's amazing with aquarell: http://madcreator.com/index.cfm
I love how art makes you escape from the real world. Because be honest, you like your dreams and imagination better as the real world, full of war and pain. I used to lay on the ground in my bedroom staring at the sky for days, and it was fun, for I had my endless imagination. But since about a year I fill my days with reading and drawing. I'm such a dull person...
Oke, I really don't know what to write anymore, I'm even boring myself!
Oh, last thing, check this song out, it's amazing, kind of Joy Division like, the voice.. :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3tZzbNsbEA&NR=1
