A Way to Understanding ArtPosted: September 27, 2017
Difficult Ordinary Happiness
Those Girls Clenched So Many Hopes, Dance, Dance, Dance, Thrice
Line Up! Take It Like a Man, But Don’t take it up with ‘The Man’
Lower the Pitch of Your Suffering, Soundless Invisible angels
As a fun experiment, I made a collage poem out of the titles of the artworks currently on display. The creative process was quite intuitive. Similar to how these artworks visually and conceptually complement each other, their titles happen to poetically complement each other and collectively take on a meaning that captures the essence of the New Arrivals 2017 exhibition.
I find that I like processing ideas in my mind through drawing, writing, or creating music playlists, whatever the subject matter is. It helps me gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for what I am trying to learn, especially when it comes to art. That being said, visitors are welcome to bring a sketchbook to the Stamp Gallery. Did any of the artworks remind you of a song? Tell a docent and perhaps it will be added to the playlist of Art Hour, Stamp Gallery’s own radio show. Whatever the case, getting creative and acquainted with the artworks is highly encouraged!
Come experience the New Arrivals 2017 exhibition in The Stamp Gallery, happening now through October 14, 2017.
