In this case the dimensions of the work will become part of the judgment?The artwork of art has different dimensions, but the stare maintains the same proportional relationship with it. The larger the size, the greater the distance.
That is to say, therefore, that from a proportional point of view there are no differences in dimensions but it is only a question of proximity or distance of the gaze.
If it is bigger, I have to move away, and if it is smaller, I have to approach it, but the look at it keeps the same portion of space for it unchanged.
Another thing is the decorative destination of the artwork. In this case the dimensions of the work will become part of the judgment?
So the perception we have of it is influenced by the use made of it, regardless of the pure value of the work of art? Does the work of art have an absolute value or is it determined by the use made of it?
Bet is over. The work satisfied me both for its construction, and how the various parts i have painted. This picture shows a robin in flight, a walking cat and a woman talking on the phone. Of these three creatures, the only one that we know where it will go is the cat, because it will goes to the woman. The background participates in a fundamental way, creating a livable, accessible space where the three characters can act. But what will happen once the cat will reach the woman? Time is crystallized into an eternal bet. The bet that is the invention of painting where everything is determined by the passage of the time, and the flow of the time has allowed at the painting to take shape. The brushstroke, every single brushstroke, allows a formal reading. We can see his develope, we can see passage of the time and how be can represented it. Through the excuse of the three characters story, the colors are laid on the canvas with the brushstrokes, one after the other, and represent the true work of art, that is, the time spend to paint it, . Painting is painting and it is also the artist, because within it is enclosed its time.
“The World is made up of objects and subjects. I am not interested in objects because they aren’t part of my experience. On the contrary when they became part of my experience, I give them a different meaning and they become for me a “subject.” This “subject” has an emotional strength, it can be a tree or a house or the sea, which became part of my life. So they become that particular tree, that particular house or that particular sea.”
