Recently I have been enjoying a book called “Nourishing Wisdom” by Marc David about the idea of eating food which nourishes our body on all levels. In the book Marc encourages us to observe what happens jwhen we think about food and when we eat it, and how both our thoughts and the food affect our bodies and emotions?
I was wondering what this would be like applied to art. Can art nourish not only our Souls but our bodies and our emotions?
- What effect to the images that we surround ourselves effect our emotions and the way we see life?
- What happens to some of the cutting edge “hip” art so popular with collectors today. Do they display it proudly in their living room, like a trophy, to provoke their friends or does it end up in some bank vault, an investment for a rainy day
- How much affect does our state of consciousness at the time of painting affect the finished piece?
- What are some of your favorite artists that nourish you on a deep level? (Mine are Van Gogh, Nicholas Roerich, Georgia O’Keefe, Agnes Martin
Speaking of favorite artists: Van Gogh’s drawings are on display at the Metropolitan from October 18, 2005â€“December 31, 2005.
