An early African art gallery exhibits pictures painted on a single rock face that formed the wall of a residence as well as a gallery of paintings. The pictures that survive to this day on the rock face that was both a gallery and a residence show how art must have been part of the quality of life of the people. Depictions of traditional ceremonies and hunting scenes are succeeded by drawings of domesticated animals and large black figures. These portend the end of their ancient way of life. Yet they kept up their work as artists almost to the point of extinction.
The Great Things In The Art Gallery
It could be that artists are in 2011 creating symbols that foretell the extinction of society as it is known today with the same unconscious foresight that the cave dwellers had. Only time will tell. It is possible that artists through the ages have been moved by inner compulsions to creatively interpret reality as it appears to them and that the signs they make have meaning of which they are themselves only partially aware.
Most young children experience creative urges at some point in their development. It may be so slight as to be indiscernible and quickly obliterated by experience. But for those with a creative it will smolder within like a fire and flame out when when conditions are right, or when they discover a medium that sets them alight.
Artists are often shy and reticent by nature. The sensitivity that is part of a creative personality tends to be associated with reticence. Despite this most artist will want to exhibit their work. Feedback and response are the means of measurement. Artists must be tough as nails and willing to withstand criticism, but positive feedback from an exhibition is like manna from heaven to them.
Masterpieces of art are exhibited in all the great galleries throughout the world. Art critics write so much about them that the artists themselves would probably be bewildered to know how much more their painting means than they realized themselves.
This is due to the imagination. An artist uses his imagination to create a scene or portrait and it is the imaginative integrity of a picture that gives it a life of it own beyond the details that an artist puts into it. The critics’ comments may be perfectly valid. The artist and the critic have quite different roles to play in art.
A new dimension has been added to the artistic world with the advent of the online art gallery. In the past some people sniffed dismissively at works that were not directly representational. They were inclined to make smug comments about liking ‘real’ art, the implication being that anything not resembling a chocolate box could not be deemed worthwhile. Online galleries enable people to access real masterpieces and read what critics have to saying They also make evident the fact that pictures have symbolic significance beyond the space that they may take up on a wall. A picture that is accessed, appreciated and ordered online will have that abstract meaning, and then another whole identity when it is framed and hung in a different context.
