So far we have established that you prefer figurative painting, meaning you put more value in artistic representation rather than artistic expression. What exactly are you drawn to in these paintings? It looks like you look for both – the actual subject, which is obvious, and the artistic subject, which takes much more understanding. Actual subjects are interpreted based on the general knowledge of literature, history, geography etc. The artistic subject involves analyzing the artistic purpose, the message, the technique and texture, its overall aesthetics. You feel the inner harmony of the painting and just take in the design and colour composition. Whether intuitively or knowingly, you appreciate and follow the basic principles of painting instinctively grasped by ancient and modern talents – and that is why your preferences have the ultimate stamp of approval.
