Art is more than just a pretty picture
Learn how the art you collect can enrich your daily life.
"When you do something for the first time, you bring ignorance, which can greatly elevate the creative process." Rick Rubin
This quote by Rick Rubin highlights the importance of approaching novel experiences with an open mind and the willingness to learn. Attempting something new can often be intimidating, but embracing the unknown can lead to unique and innovative ideas. Ignorance, in this context, refers to a lack of preconceptions or biases, giving the individual freedom to think outside the box and take risks. This creative process can be applied to numerous areas of life, from art and music to problem-solving and entrepreneurship.
Children playing on a beach exemplify the concept of approaching novel experiences with an open mind and the willingness to learn. Uninhibited, children explore their surroundings, play with new toys, and interact with strangers. This creative and curious mindset allows them to discover new things and develop cognitive and social skills. Playing on the beach and building sandcastles involves imaginative and innovative thinking contributing to their overall development.
Similarly, creating and looking at art requires approaching the experience with an open mind and a willingness to explore. I draw inspiration from my surroundings, experiences, and emotions to produce something unique and authentic. Your ability to appreciate requires that same profound openness and curiosity. This creative and critical thinking can help artists and art enthusiasts expand their minds and gain new insights into the world around them. The creative process of playing on a beach and creating/appreciating art share similarities in their approach to learning, exploration, imagination, and innovation. Both can contribute to an individual's overall development and enhance their creativity, cognitive skills, and social interactions.
Art is more than just a pretty picture. Aesthetic value in art is only one benefit. Art can also evoke emotions and feelings that enhance a person's mood and positively influence their mental state. Additionally, art inspires creative thinking and imagination, which is beneficial in problem-solving, innovation, and personal growth. It provides people with new perspectives, ideas and encourages them to pursue their passions or express themselves artistically. The art you collect can enrich your daily life.
“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further.” – Keith Haring
