I believe human mind can perform beyond and more than we imagine but we simply do not know how. We have this misconception where people believe we are born a certain way that limits them. I am not talking about inheriting genetic conditions or disorders that restricts your ability; but even then its your mind and your choice as to how our will manage and control any situation so ultimately you determine how and what you can feel.
So with that said I choose this particular art piece because I can personally connect and relate to it and get the chance to hear what other people has to say. At first I noticed all the facemasks expressing different emotions and it appeared to be growing out of some type of a plant. I interpreted it as “its normal and natural to feel these emotions” At times we are overwhelmed by these mixed thoughts feelings, emotion, ideas, and even your memories. (Faces) I believe this is a common thing amongst us. Overtime, I came to a realization life is a study; a learning experience it cannot be mastered but be accepted for what it is. Which brings us to the face that is located at the bottom of the picture with no expression holding “in” these feeling (faces) conveys the message “that it is within you to decide what to express, strengthen and encourage the growth of” I believe as soon as you understand what is truly good for you and know what you desire you will natural develop it.
I appreciate this art because It appears to be a simple work but it has a complex and deep interpretation. I find the art of sketching fascinating because it is one of the oldest forms of art originating from the Greek in the 1400s and its still utilized today. Brian Hudson created this particular art on February 27th 2008. I obtained his art through modern troll deviant art (Google). One of his techniques that I have notice that recognized from the read was how he uses the values of shading and lighting just like the Leonardo da Vinci’s work of art “ The Virgin and Saint Anne with the Chris Child and John the Baptist” both of these art work uses the hatching and cross-hatching method. After hundreds of year of art it has not changed just the way we view it.
How long did it take to complete this art?
Where did he get the idea?
Why the Sketching method?
