Art, Where You Do Not Even Expect It…

Do you know the difference between classic old-school art and modern or contemporary art? There are must be many of them, but today we want to illustrate just one, which, we believe, is among the most prominent differences. It is the object, chosen by an artist, to be the model for his creative works. While Victorian Age or Renaissance painters mostly focused on the ideals of beauty, choosing only the aesthetically perfect landscapes and human models to depict on their pictures, modern artists tend to search for their own aesthetics, often in the most unexpected and unusual places and things.

Without scrolling down the page to the selection of today’s photographs, first think about the pipes in general and allow yourself a few seconds to decide how much art, you think, can be in these particular products of the heavy industry. Finding and revealing to the audience different forms of today’s aesthetics – this is, perhaps, one of the most important capabilities of the modern art. Pipes… Who would ever think that pipes themselves can be used as the core point of the picture? What a broad and unusual imagination an artist needs to possess in order to recognize the powerful art component, hidden in a simple bunch of pipes?! That is the secret of the modern art – it does not obey to rules – hence, it is not limited by the fixed borders of the art tradition. Today, art is all about freedom and about the individual world of an artist with his personal, sometimes incomprehensible, unacceptable, repulsive, or even shocking, understanding of art itself…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
