The All Mighty Dot
Well, maybe not a dot, technically, maybe a dollop or short brush stroke.
Anyway, paintings like this make me wonder if some of us artists are actually scientists; probing the universe at-large, looking for meaning instead of just facts.
Pointillism; wasn't that a science of sorts, breaking down a painting into it's smallest parts and yet keeping the whole?
It's always a bump in the road when you are with someone who has to ask "what is it?" when encountering an abstract or contemporary art work.
And what a pleasure to be with someone , on the other hand, who goes silent and studies the painting; open and willing to receive whatever message was intended by the artist.
In a way, aren't paintings like a message in a bottle cast upon the sea of life.
I believe that in the future they'll have equipment that'll be able to "read" paintings and decipher all kinds of information and meaning.
I am in awe of artist who can pursue a specific style/theme and make it their career, their oeuvre.
