Seeing Art in Everything
Have you ever looked at a very simple thing and immediately thought “that would make a great art piece”. I see art in almost everything. It can be perceived in food, fashion, nature and people! What makes art is not just the beautiful pictures and paintings seen in galleries. It is everywhere if you just take a moment to stop and really take it all in. Some of the best art I have come across is quite random. I can be walking along a street and suddenly stop – before me is a bakery filled with the most beautiful coloured baked goods. A woman walking her dog and the combination of what she is wearing in contrast to the actual dog. A street statue placed in the centre of a sidewalk. The fluid lines of an automobile can be amazing. There is so much around to see and perceive in the form of art. Our daily lives are constantly surrounded by it. The problem is we often do not stop to think about the beauty we experience in the moment.
So I would like to offer this suggestion, the next time you are out and about just stop for a moment. Look around you and take in the picture that is right in front of you. What you see could really be amazing.
