Illo Friday: Imagine

with words from
Marcel Proust

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
"Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of reality which represent his fundamental view of man's nature."

"Only by art can we get outside ourselves, instead of seeing only one world, our own, we see it under multiple forms."

"If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time."

note: Too late for last week's theme. But i can't let this illo pass without posting. It's just too meaningful and precious to me.

There's a wonderful dreamlike quality to watching this emerge - it'd work really well as a piece of animation, with the stages dissolving into each other. The light in that window is everything to this composition!

Blogger atomicvelvetsigh whispered...

Oh great idea! was thinking of that too... btw taking up Flash Animation class now maybe i can something with these. I let you know if its successful.. 8)

true ... in every art piece .. we see a different world .. in the eyes of the artist... and in every rendition of reality a new world is explored....
