Due to health reasons I am retired from work, but that doesn’t mean I can’t use my brain to think – or to enjoy art. There is indeed beauty and aesthetics in art, and I intend to enjoy it for all I am worth.
For me personally, my taste tends to go towards gothic (original medieval gothic, neo gothic, present day gothic et cetera), art grotesque and so on. I enjoy the darker side of human expression.
I was lucky enough to have my dream job for few years. I worked as a portrait- and wedding photograher in Sweden. When doing that, I realized I wanted to know where photography came from, how it came to be, the history behind it, and later also – how to analyse it.
So, I began studying the history of art. I am rather well educated in this area, but haven’t gotten around to taking a degree yet. I may do that, or I won’t. But I am surprised to say that what I found myself enjoying the most, is what I thought I’d enjoy the least. I am very, very fond of the theory and methods behind the analysis of art, photography in particular.
Among the things I enjoy the most, are the valuable lessons I learnt from these studies. It’s all a question about perspective, and I believe the studies of art, history and other similar subjects, teach us the most about how everything depends on how we percieve it. And, worth to remember is that we always choose how we percieve something.
These things are worth remembering, tucking away into your backbone, and using the knowledge of this in your everyday life. Always remember that there is more ways to look at something than just the one. There is never a singular truth to anything, it all depends on how you look at it.
Irrelevant facts about me; I am in my lower middle ages, I love the colours black and red, I have two black cats and a black dog (German Shepherd), I enjoy wearing make up, I only do things I am good at, and I blog sometimes irregularily.
See you on the blog! 🙂
