Nothing is more intimate than artistic expression. Everyone will bring his know-how, and in one way or another, put forward a particular talent, a facet of his personality, materialize an emotion, in an instinctive or controlled manner, have an intellectual approach , Political, animal, liberating, methodical, constructive ... Art can play a mirror role, where the painter is measured according to the value that his work refers to him, or else be the key to the recognition, Artist believes that a widespread dissemination guarantees him a public or social existence, necessary for financial reasons or personal balance. It can also simply be the expression of joy or pain.
So I do not imagine putting a scale of value on the different forms that painting can take, whether abstract or figurative. I really believe that art flatters a particular quality of man. And there are qualities of all kinds. If, for example, an artist has the particular gift of knowing how to transmit emotions through his work, then he must be appreciated for that particular talent. If an artist, by the realism of his works expresses an extraordinary talent for his ability to work hard and hard, then this talent must be congratulated. If originality is what characterizes a work, then we must applaud this original character.
As for giving a commercial value to a work, a trait of character ... As for wanting to classify the human qualities in order of importance ... As to say that the emotion surpasses the control of the trait ... As for Despise a genre ... As for finding a curve more beautiful than a straight line ... As for not seeing where the talent of an artist is located ... As to believe that a painting that makes think is worth more That another that is simply beautiful ...
Of course some are more adroit than others to express their views, and one is impressed by the performance, because one measures it according to one's own capacities. This is not, however, a reason to refrain from practicing painting which is above all a great individual adventure before being shared. We allow ourselves to sing or whistle in our bathroom without wanting to do it in public. So let's take our pencils, our pens, our brushes!
