Vivaldi’s “the Four Seasons: Spring ”

you tube video posted by franzhun
(I particularly love this video at 1:45 where the artist starts with the image of birds in the sky…that transforms into a figure the face of a woman, then the figure if filled in with emotive facial expression.)
I am both envious and appreciative of Artists. they are able to pull figures out of backgrounds with a few strokes on a canvas.
Often its just a swirl and a sweep of lines, enough to provoke the art appreciator (in this case, me)..
to fill in the rest with his mind, experience and emotions.
The Artist and Appreciator together form images and share aesthetics on the common meeting- ground of a canvas… The Artist and the Appreciator share a complexed timeless wordless communication.. shared ideas and emotions
An interplay forms between Artist and Appreciator…
- A new figure form out of a ground
- Its not necessary for an Artist to draw or even explain every detail…
- Its not necessary of the Artist to analyze the artists motive.
-The Art critic may analyze the motives of the “Artist” .
-A neurologist may map on and explain the way an appreciating on-looker perceives images,
However neither fully understand the communication, until step into the gestalt fully participate in the Artist-appreciator experience.
the Artist who initiates this communication
I am able to appreciate this communication
we, togethe,r are participate in this communication.
Added Revision: I was listening to music yesterday while working on some home-improvement projects (including mounting some art on a wall). Vivaldi’s Four Season was playing. I thought of this video. Here it is again.
