Art galleries, the perfect place for an art enthusiast to step away from the pressure of every day life and unwind. A place to get lost in and escape reality for a moment of time. Find a piece to connect with and begin the process of unveiling the meaning and motivation that was put into it.
Every piece of artwork has a story and a meaning to those who find a connection to what a specific piece is conveying. Whether it be this particular work brings back childhood memories of endless possibilities or the release of a painful turning point in life. Art can be related to an emotion, a memory, a thought, an idea, a way of thinking, etc. This gives fine art yet another reason to be needed. It is in that connection that the need to be understood has the potential to be filled and in many cases it is. The ability for a person to see a painting or a drawing that describes a personal part of the viewers' life is a incredible and liberating thing.
This sense of liberation is more often than not one of the endless reasons that artists create such emotion oriented works. These types of works come from a very specific kind of artist. An artist who pours their life and soul into each of their works of art. Fueled by their own life experiences, much of their inner most joy, sorrow, love, frustration or anger is often expressed through these deeply personal works. Through art they capture a moment that perhaps another will understand that they are not alone in their experience. Every piece has a story behind the medias and how subtle or bold the story is embedded into the artwork is a decision left entirely up to the artist.
No matter what all artworks have a story to tell and a meaning to share. Fine arts are the spice of life, reminding all who see it that life is to be lived. Go and live it, visit a gallery or two or ten and see what pieces jump out at you. After all a picture is worth a thousand words.
