Strokes of Humanity
In Realism, we could see the pain and desolation of the peasants in the potato fields of Corrot.
During Impressionism, we could feel the agony and sensitivity in the turbulent skies of Vincent and the profundity that lies beyond our eyes.
Cubism, Pablo showed us the symmetry of the human race, and how we all share similar lines.
Fauvism, thorough his blues and pinks depicting the beauty of the islanders in Tahiti Paul, made us realize how the colour that permeates our skin is so irrelevant and multi coloured and yet precisely because of this natural differences so unique and beautiful.
Pointillism, Seurat called our attention of how pointless is the point in itself, and how infinite, whole and meaningful it becomes when it is in the company of others.
Surrealism, which Dali uncovered the lines of the unconsciousness and its irrational discourse through a series of unimaginable series of juxtaposed imagery, and the inconsequence limits of our rational state.
Expressionism, the Scream that Munch resonated to high light the subjective unresolved and often painful emotions that humans are entangled in the brief path of existence.
Modernism, Rothko let us look inside ourselves and reflect on our permanent inner solitude as individuals surrounded by de ever grandiose of the outer universe in face of our own impermanent insignificance.
And in the end it all splashed like a virus with billions of screens and virtual images flashing in all corners of the planet blinding our inner vision and spirit after Andy’s revelation of an imminent future of materialistic worship and his prophetic words; in the future everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.
