For me, communication is one of the most important aspect of life. Without it, we won’t be able to move forward, can’t share or be involved, can’t love and be loved, therefore we can’t grow in life.
There are different ways of communication. Some people talk, some write, some listen, some act and some create … in silence …
What you see in a piece of art is not just colors, pigments, canvas, design and shapes. These are just materials that an artist communicates love, hate, fear, happiness, sadness, emotions, and feelings with its viewer.
When a piece of art connects with you, it’s when you translate it into your thoughts. This brings out what you are, how you feel and how you connect with people. This is when you love an artwork so much that you want to have it in your home to not only give you everyday inspiration but also to take you with people around you to another level of communication.
An empty room without artwork in my opinion shows the lack of communication within yourself and therefore with others. It shows a sort of emptiness and absence.
For me, communicating through artwork is easier than using words. It seams that my thoughts are not coming out right when I put them in words. I think of one thing and it comes out of my mouth completely something different. That is why I try to communicate through my paintings. This is my way of communication.
