Words and Mark Making

Have you ever noticed or thought about just how little it takes for our minds to perceive an image. With only a few brush strokes or marks, our brain will leap to conclusions and "paint a picture", so to speak.

This particular work has plenty of effort put forth, but it still reminded me of  the ease with which we can evoke meaningful visuals and conjure moods. Adding words, a more advanced form of mark making, complicates things and slows us down while we search for concrete clues and meaning.

The artist is Gunter Ludwig and the image is from a really great Blog called just another masterpiece.

You'll find a nice slide show of his work HERE.
