I am an artist and being so has led me to ask questions about reality that I dont think many people who arent artists bother to ask because they dont need to know. Many examples would have to do directly with rendering reality. We spend so much time trying to understand reality for that initial reason that I tend to think artists can be the most spiritual people. A scientist may only ask certain questions of the nature of their field but an artist would look at as many fields as they need to answer the questions they need answered. Luckily reality gives us unlimited questions we have the oppotunity to come at life from a perception that benefits our growth on all levels. Art is the initial key to opening that perception to us.
Through my spiritual growth I have found many different degrees of perceptions and how that plays out art wise. I once lived at a very low perception, slower energy, and because of this identified the most with very dark imagery and subject matter. I remember enjoying demons and drawing dark, even scary images. One of my friends who was growing themselves challenged me to draw a "positive" image. I honestly couldnt think of a single thing! To make a long story short I did eventually start drawing positive imagery but not until I became spiritual in nature and started to see life from many different perspectives.
Now I invite more light into my life vs darkness. I have found such a love for bright colors and it shows in my artwork. I often get the comments that my images are too bright, too saturated with color. I contemplate this idea from many angles but the main I am thinking of is the scientific realm. Brighter colors are LITERALLY higher vibration. Faster moving particles of energy. The way someone relates more to one degree of brightness or another is directly related to their perception.
So my question seems to be with intention more than anything. If we are all running from different perceptions, and each individual has their own motives based on that intention, then a suggestion coming from someone who doesnt even understand the image from the same perspective would give advice that doesnt work for the creator, only for themselves. They arent comfortable with the image because it is literally out of their realm. As creators do we ignore this when its a personal project? The intention anyway is to express ones self, unless the intention to create a powerful image. Which even then is still a matter of opinion.
I havent studied a lot of color theory or gone to school to learn anything like that so you guys may have insights I would love to hear!
I have attached an image of some examples. Some from before when i lived in states of stress and anxiety and fear. And my percpetion only served to help keep me in that state. When I decided I wanted more for myself my perception started to change and I saw what i was holding on to didnt help me. like stress and anxiety. I kept seeing more opportunities in each new moment and seeing them as something to learn about myself through and let go of the new thing. This is hard to explain to someone who doesnt practice. The closest I can come to on that last part is meditation. Bringing pure awareness of yourself into the moment. When you pay attention to your feelings you actually see right choices. Do I feel better when I do this, eat this, fight with that, act like this, or even paint this kind of subject.
Its very obvious that we are connected to reality in a deep way and tho it is hard to see I believe we manifest everything in our lives based entirely on our perception. Do we manifest better thing by sticking with what feels right? What would the highest vibration art even look like? Would it nearly white? considering white includes all color. Or would you not even need to create art at the highest vibration? So many questions, maybe you guys can shed some light for me
