My Art Philosophy
"In art, and in the higher ranges of science, there is a feeling of harmony, which underlies all endeavor. There is no true greatness in art or science without that sense of harmony." ~ Albert Einstein
To understand art as such, it is important to first understand that we all perceive art through a different lens. Our life paths and experiences provide us with various filters, which influence the way we perceive and interpret sometimes the un-interpretable, because we can only perceive art as a fragment of its entirety. Yet, in our journey through life, we seek to broaden the spectrum of our lens and to interpret more and find a deeper meaning beneath the coat of subjective reality.
Like that journey, my creation is the result of all the sense imprints I have experienced during my lifetime, and the attempt to see the reality of these imprints from a diverse perspective. By diverse - I mean that I try to bring attention to aspects of our life that at first glance might seem un-interesting, and not worth our time for further exploration and personal inflection. Through my creation, I attempt to peel off the layers that we don't see and try to put them forward in a way which helps us see it.
It creates a visual conundrum because the creation is both a form of impressionism and surrealism, resulting from a common denominator that brings all of its elements together. That common denominator is of course harmony. The harmony is hidden in the essence of a message coming from a simple photograph, coupled together in an organic relationship with other layers of elements to present one holistic message, which defines that relationship and the harmony between its individual elements.
This search for a deeper understanding of harmony is thus the fundamental focus of my personal lens, which underlies this collection of artwork. I am proud to explore this specific theme, as I believe that many greats in the past have acknowledged the importance of it in relation to how we view and interpret the world around us.
