La pintura y la poesía…

(C.2021, Derechos Reservados/All Rights Reserved)

La pintura se define de la manera que te de la gana…

La pintura…bueno, el arte dirían algunos, es cosa que definen los artistas, que nos meten por los ojos y nos dicen que la tenemos que admirar, consumir, agradecer…

Quizá seamos todos artesanos, una noble vocación, una util profesión también y ademas se asemeja mucho a lo que hacemos, pues no somos originales…

¿Que hay de original bajo el sol?

Yo diría que nada…

A mi no se me ocurre decir que soy un artista, porque se supone que el artista es un creador y aquí en la tierra, donde peregrinamos, no hay creadores, habremos solo repetidores…

El arte entonces es poesía…

Pero ¿como es posible? Si la poesía es el uso de la palabra para crear algo bello, con ritmo y con mucho garbo…

Y la pintura ¿que es?

¿Acaso un garabato?

Quizá amor mio,

    I think that art is a person’s attempt to define the world or some part of it as the person interprets it. What the artist (read painter/poet/writer/sculptor/actor) interprets at that point in time may not be the same as the audience–who may be in a different place/time/even mood. The artist may have firm ideas on what has been depicted but that does not mean the intended or unintended audience will ever agree. I like your self-portrait–you look quite stern to me. Looks different in each of the mirror images as emoted by the color. As an English major, I had many teachers and professors who were certain that their interpretation was the only proper one–I disagree with those absolute decrees.

    Yes, nothing new under the sun. Being at once a word artist and a reader myself, I worry that unconsciously I will plagiarize something from someone else. Should this be less a concern as it has all been said before? Suspect in the case of words, somewhat discrete and finite, blatant mimics are easier to spot. Ah, mayhaps I should find a cave light a fire and doodle in the dirt with a stick to entertain myself. Good read this morning.

        Never progress beyond that. Entertain Umma, Ooog, and Chakka maybe but mostly myself. Have a lovely evening, sir.

      2. Sounds pretty rewarding Espie, maybe in a couple of million years the new earthlings will wonder what the hell it is, LOL!
