I am passionate about Art…I once took a friend to the Tate modern in london. and came across a blank canvas!…My friends reaction was hardly surprising. He scoffed at it and walked away…But through an artists eye it all made sense. Modern art was born out of a reaction to the birth of the camera. the art of skillfully  creating a photo real image on canvas when the camera could do it in a fraction of a second had no value. Picasso quite rightfully said that all objects were three dimensional, so the camera had its limitations. Hence the reason some of his portrait were multi faceted images of different angles of one object. as if you were walking around the image..But what about the blank canvas? .. Think of any painting you like what you see is what you get. it is laid out for you…but take a white canvas and you are left with nothing but your own imagination!!!…suddenly that canvas has  infinate images as opposed to a masterpiece by a Canalletto, Rembrandt, or even Picasso. which despite its beauty will always be one image captured at that moment in time…

    A good artist appeals to those who outside the small circle of art. If only an artist eye gets it, then it is not really art.
