What is an art
Principally Korean says an exciting word for some pictures, and it is called "It's like a calendar picture(Qeugeon dallyeog geulimgata-a)." If someone doesn't feel something extraordinary when they look at the paintings, it's a monotype, lack of character, and hard to figure out who drew it. As usual, people say that it is likely to "A dim a dozen." I want to say that it can compare copying artworks without artists' signature to actual paintings.
Artist's works have signatures and titles, which means that they can identify as if babies receive their parents' character and names. Also, artworks have aged, and they are getting older like human beings. Additionally, the artists put their passion, desires, and wishes on their works, and then they hope that art lovers live in happiness and wellness. Most of all, they want to look at it anytime and get lots of energy from it.
My one of the customer, who bought the overcome's series, told me that she'd like to see this artwork whenever she wakes up in the morning. So I assume that it is giving her some energy to strengthen up weakness. So still now, I sometimes pray for her, that she lives energetic and powerful in her life.
The picture that artists draw includes their hope, philosophy, and vision. Besides, it is the world that wants to show the public their artistic aspects. Hundertwasser was an Austrian visual artist and architect(1928-2000), strongly recommended to his art collector to carefully preserve his works. He insisted that they should keep the pictures at the proper temperature and humidity with minimal lighting. Sometimes, he called to his customers to ask his artwork's regards, " How is the picture doing?". And then the curators and art collectors did hesitate to receive his calling.
In my opinion, caring baby and art holding are the same concepts on this point. Ofen, I liken artwork to the same position that the parents sent their daughter to be a bride. If she meets a beautiful partner and gets married to him, after then, she lives very well for her entire life. It is the same willingness of our parents, and also the same feeling with artists. Frequently I don't want to push to sell my works even if they have some interest in them because I believe that artworks already have their owner. I think that it seems like a destination. And then I can let it down to sell my paintings naturally.
There is a significant crucial in the actual paintings. When I visited the Kunsthaus in Swiss with my family, we saw a small picture and stopped in front of it for a long time. It drove my soul with sadness, joy, and desire feeling. A curator stands by the image strictly. It was Vincent van Gogh's artwork. Actually, I discovered that people could cry while they look at the artworks. At the moment, I get exceptional experience that it opens the tunnel between the recent and the past, and then we can communicate each other and exchange the feeling together. It was one of my memorable moments about the particular painting. Therefore, I can tell the differences between copies and reals convincingly.
If it has identification such as signature, title, ages,and it's own private stories or if it gives you some unique emotion like sadness, delight, meaningfulness, etc. Also if it can give you some energy or you would like to keep preciously even though you don't know the reason.
Conclusively, I decided and spoke myself day after day whenever I sit on my chair to draw it. "Please bless me, encourage me to avoid painting such as calendar pictures.
