Tim Slowinski, 1978
“Art is a way of life, a method of being, a way of perceiving the world.”
Today’s Daily Artful Contemplation post is in honor of SLOW ART DAY (6 April 2019).
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
(Henry David Thoreau)
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries.Slow Art Day
Take at least 10 minutes to immerse yourself in this epic intricate artwork created by intuitive artist Lanon Carl Prigge for Artful Contemplation. And then (casually and comfortably, with no goal other than to share) discuss your experience with someone.
When I create an artwork, it’s an improvisation, it’s impulsive. There is very little thought about what I am looking for. I am waiting for a moment, for something to happen.
I am attracted to color and movement, and the moment when these two come together in the artwork.
When I paint, I find I AM, I find I am able to BE. It is relaxation, meditation, work and play.artist, Lanon Prigge
Do I paint pictures, or is it that through this practice I am painted into being? For now, I cannot make answer.
Is there really need for one?
