FIAT LUX By Ricardo Woo
…. God said, let there be light: and there was light. (Dixitque Deus: Fiat Luc. Et facta es lux.) - Genesis
The artist creates the work of art, and lets it goes.
… Art is not a thing: it us a way. - Elbert Hubbard, Epigrams.
If we look for meaning in life, we will one day experience the sublime. This is the quintessential moment when we recognize the eternal and celebrate our endless guest towards meaning.
…All the arts are brothers; each one is a light to the others. - Voltaire, note to ode on Death of the princess of Bareith
…. Art expresses nothing but itself. - Oscar Wilde, the Decay of Lying.
Painting and photography usually focus on different dimensions of representation.
By sacrificing in certain representation, everything has turned into an intellectual situation, and it generates questions about conceptual versus aesthetics. Each question has raised during this process from politics to ideology, from taste to decoration and from communication expression always respond to another question.
Every expressive medium in visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, etc.) has its own identity. When they are shown together interdependently, they promote intersection of sights. It transports the audience to an unpredictable and un-codified situation that make the appreciation of art so interesting. This strategy in art can freeze a fresh experience to advance knowledge and acquire the statue of sublime, not in aesthetics but in the study of aesthetics itself. So, the prime idea of this intellectual interface is leading us to a new territory of human sensibility.
…. Art can break nature. - Thomas Underdone, Heliodorus.
The art in the tradition of liberal studies has been protected from and at the same time condemned to not be directly exposed to the transformation caused by technology today. Today, science depend fully on technology. It can change, manipulate or even maybe create life. In this point, art cannot be contemporary in its cause and effect, compare with the relation between science and technology, but the moment in life experience compare with the relation between science and technology, but the moment in life experienced by humanity, only art could interpret. Science is nature, and art is the error of that.
And my paintings and photographs, I assume all the “imperfections” of reproduction. Once I find a place of the artist, I could “dominate” the incertitude of adventure in art. For me this us what makes art so intriguing.
