ART REVIEW: Connecting Art and Laymen

Theme: The work of art reviewers and art critiques is not less than controversial. The Art reviewers and art critics make the art more enjoyable.

When the creations of a genius collide with the mind of a layman, and produce an empty sound, there is little doubt as to which is at fault. Salvador Dali

Mona Lisa

Leonardo Da Vinci had used various techniques. He was unique and innovative in his style of working, especially while painting. Leonardo’s paintings had redefined the rules of art of painting prevalent in that time. The techniques he used had became an integral part of contemporary art. Mona Lisa was his one of the best paintings. It is perhaps the best portrait in the world.

Leonardo da Vinci used a new technique that was unknown in the 16th century. The style of painting he invented is called “sfumato” technique. Literally it means ‘without lines or borders, in the manner of smoke’. He would start his painting with dark tones for under-painting, he would give his paintings a three dimensional look.

The creations of the genius must not collide with an empty mind; it makes the labour of the artists, the genius lost. Then what should be done? The common man is not so unkind or unresponsive to the art as it is generally believed. But when a man or a woman having a little or no knowledge of the art looks at a painting or a sculpture, he or she found pleasure in his/her heart; but the mind remains empty of the details about the reasons of that pleasure.

Here emerges need of a person who could be a dependable bridge between an artist and common man. That is sole job of a reviewer or an art critique. (All reviews given below are written by NAVAL LANGA. (Above image courtesy Wikemedia Commons)
