Creative idea
When I was traveling through painting, my soul was in a difficult position. How can I get out of the low tide and stir my heart every day, I must find an exit. I have always recorded the results with my pen in the process of painting. When I encounter suffering and bitterness, I will talk with my favorite works to strengthen the creativity and action. I understand that art treats the complex and deep psychology. The role, in order to calm my mind, I put the images of celebrity paintings into my canvas. The mentality produced during the process is very subtle, sometimes speechless, sometimes calm like rain. From a therapeutic perspective, “some kind of spiritual companionship” is undoubtedly a way to relieve stress. It allows me to complete the dialogue with the creators of a certain time with more meditation and narrative. . The companionship needed to study oneself on the basis of art is also used to focus on the process of generating new recognition, and to consider others and one’s own artistic creation as one of the important guidelines for understanding one’s own work and the method to restore spiritual courage. The journey of discovery is more in-depth than the appreciation of famous paintings and understanding of celebrities, because it contains all the worlds immersed in a state of one line, one painting, one oil and one color, which helped me through some stages of psychological chaos. . I draw abstraction with innovation as the core spirit. As far as therapy is concerned, I need a unique analogy to understand the motivation to distinguish between my own progress and the desire to innovate. This spiritual quality transforms the inner influence, external phenomena and I think From a behavioral science perspective, I get many valuable facets. Use the empirical truth to meditate to obtain spiritual salvation, to find ways to satisfy the self-inquiry, and through companionship to explore the uncertainty derived from and emerge from the painting career along the way. This artistic psychotherapy creation is rich clinical experiments. From Van Gogh, Schiller,Bernard Buffet, Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani, Yuanlifu , and feel the tangible and intangible help of companionship in their intentions. Everything is real, and I have adjusted my mindset to reflect on the meaning of painting. I do n’t know if this is called the heart. The placebo effect, it has indeed produced many psychological reactions in my personal experience. However, inexplicably having an uncoordinated mental state in painting has also made the process more chaotic. As for the configuration of the composition of the main character of the painting, the layout of the color tension also adds a lot of difficulty, and the confusion of the creative philosophy is not intentional. Clip into color and strokes. I really believe that when the mind moves, it allows us to be more aware of what has happened in the experience and accepts its impact on ourselves. Finally, I get the common core value, so I multiply my pulse technique. It is difficult to replicate the integration of blooming, tracing, masking, and multi-level color stacking. I have gone through the concrete records of my life ’s painting stage, enjoyed the journey of expanding my mind, and experienced the mental reaction of spiritual companionship to distinguish my many thoughts on the subject, process, and result of painting. It is necessary to find a solution. I use art to express another existing art.
