Understanding contemporary art? This is obviously a good question. But the real question we must ask ourselves is: should we understand or know how to appreciate a work of art?
In fact, it is not essential to have notions of art history to love contemporary art! On the other hand, to appreciate a work of art, you have to feel it and this feeling can only develop through repetition, which is why we have launched our You Tube channel entitled “Loving contemporary art” which will present well-known and lesser-known artists during the summer of 2020.
Looking at a work of art, “not to understand or know, but to feel something” as the English painter Francis Bacon wrote. This is the magic that takes place between the work and the viewer.
A magic that even makes you fall in love, according to a study conducted by neurobiologists in London in 2012. So if art stimulates our deep and intimate emotions, we will help you to look differently, to shape your eye, by going deep inside yourself to find that little spark that will simply allow you to judge for yourself if you like contemporary art or not, or more precisely if you appreciate the work presented or not.
Every Thursday in June and July, we offer you an appointment with an artist! An artistic and instructive journey in the form of a video to share without moderation with family and friends! See you soon on Galerie Charron’s You Tube channel.
