“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
― Edgar Degas

 

The other day someone commented on one of my pictures and told me that she had seen a wolf there. I admired her perception and when I looked, I could see it tho I had put no wolf in. This has happened a number of times. People see things in my art that I have not potentially put in. Now it is given that I tend towards the abstract yet this tends to surprise me. On another level it also humbles and gratifies me. People are interacting with my paintings and getting from them symbols that are meaningful to them. When this happens I remember a quote that said something along the lines of “What do I know what it means, I’m just the writer?” I create my images and I pull together both intention and mood from the inside and a variety of materials (stock photos, filters, brush work, etc) and it often feels like a collaboration with the universe. Just because I didn’t put something in does not mean it isn’t there.
Blessings, G
