Viewing Art, Not Advertising

Viewing art.

This activity appears to intimidate many. Fortunately, there is good news. No one knows more how feel than you—not the museum director, art expert, and so on.

But that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook; with access and freedom comes responsibility: know what you are looking at—not the subject matter or lack of formalism, but how the art got there on paper, canvas or other medium, in the first place. Is it magic?

In art from the spirit and soul, if you see it, it’s there.
