Quotable Quotes On Visual Art

DEFINITION OF SHMADHI

Art is natural meditation. Great Sage Patanjali, describe the word Samadhi in his scripture Yoga Sutra (chapter Vibhuti Pada, Sutra # from 1 to 4). When mind is fixed on an object is known as Concentration (Dharana). After practice, when the concentration becomes uninterrupted, it is known as meditation (Dhyana). In meditation, when only essence of the object remains, and also when the Self appears to be absent, that state is known as absorption (Samadhi) on an object. Collective practice of concentration (Dharana), meditation (Dhyana) and absorption (Samadhi) is known as Samyama, which is technical name given to the above process.

ART IS A MEDITATION

As per ancient Indian scriptures, the pineal gland is a grosser form of Agya Chakra, i.e., Third Eye and is responsible for concentration and creativity related to visual art, where creation is involved. Till the age 14 or so, pineal gland is active and fully functional. As the age advances, the pineal gland gets calcified and passes on control to the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the puberty in the children. That’s why most of the children are born artists, but they start losing their natural artistic ability as the age advances. There are many techniques, which can re-activate the Third Eye, and performing Visual Art is one of the techniques.

INNATE VS ATTAINED

Some people do have innate abilities, and thus can naturally perform better than others in a particular subject. They have revered interest in the subject, and progressively improve their skills with uninterrupted practice (read more about Neuroplasticity). But talent can be also be learnt and developed by those consider untalented. They can also achieve similar result with intense practice. The fact is that people are often more creative than they think. It’s said if you can write, you can draw as well. Everyone can learn to draw and paint, and they do it extremely well. You can learn to draw by drawing, which can be achieved by experimenting with art material.

ART IS A HAPPENING

Art is more of a happening (not a doing), a meditation, where subject and object merge into each other, and one transcends the concept of time, space and unit. It’s amazing that this phenomenon takes place when the entity “I” is not present at all. Anyway, though I enjoy this creative happening, the manifestation may be enjoyed by others.

OBSERVATION & ART

An act of observation involves the observer, the observed and the observation. When the observer is acutely absorbed in an object, then all three fuse into each other, and pure awareness about the object remains. During this process of acute observation, conscious mind (observer) goes into a state of inertia; and control is passed on to subconscious mind, which is beyond unit, time and space. This is technically known as Samadhi (Absorption) on an object.

CREATIVE BUG

Everyone is born creative; everyone is give a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replaces them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the “creative bug” is just a wee voice telling you, I’d like my crayons back, please.
