The True Value of Art in Today’s CRAZY World

ARTWORK IDEA – Rotate Your Artwork Like A Gallery Does – Really!

ARTWORK IDEA FROM NESTOR TORO

Many of my collectors are regulars and purchase a new work every few months. So have summer homes that also need artwork. Others simply rotate the artwork on their walls to keep them looking fresh which is a GREAT IDEA! So many are afraid of collecting art because they fear they do not have the wall space for it. Rotating artwork (just like art galleries and museums do) – Imagine if they have the same works each time you visited.

Why not do the same thing with your home? Just keep it in mind. I have so many collectors who say they see new works but just don’t know where to hang it – rotate your artwork! That is what all collectors do – it’s what I do! There is finite wall space (even in the largest home) so rotating your artwork gives the space a whole new look and feel. Give it a try and I think you will find out that you love it!

Remember that corner or small room with the same painting for years – well – just imagine have a few works of perhaps 20 x 16 inches (really a great size for many spaces) and changing the artwork in that space every few months – it will change the entire “feel” and “energy” of the room! Try it! Check out the vast selection of affordable 20 x 16 inch works I have available right now!

So with that in mind why not head over to the shop to see what’s new!

What is it about Art – Why Is Art Valued?

Art is a magical thing in human terms. The first artistic human creations were cave paintings around 40,0000 years ago. Art is one of the most important human creations because it is not necessary for survival. Unlike food, shelter, and the basics needed for survival, art is created simply to express. This is important because it shows us that the need for expression has been around a long time and has evolved along with human culture. Basic shelter was adorned with carving and later pigments for color. These works were done not out of necessity but rather out of the sheer mental stimulation that these visual additions gave. What do you think inspired these early artists? A need to leave their mark perhaps…the amazement they felt being alive and aware of their lives.

As human culture evolved and grew more complex art was used by those with the means to further enhance there surroundings. Artists were hired to create celebrate murals often with a religious theme. These works were used not only to provide visual pleasure but also to communicate stories or events considered important – thus they were beautiful and also served a practical purpose.

Because art is not necessary for the basic survival (although today we can argue that statement) it is held in high regard as a uniquely human accomplishment. Art separates us from other animals in that it is done for pleasure and is created from the mind. Art can be seen as the ultimate in human accomplishments as it has evolved from being a literal visual representation of something such as a portrait of a person who lived long ago to something that is purely enjoyable from a mental aspect such as abstract art. Abstract art is where it gets really interesting…

You might just find something that resonates with you and inspires and motivates you. Nestor Toro – Los Angeles

Did You Know – “Pure Abstractions”

I am a painter and my work is pure abstraction. Some might think they are easy to do and that anyone could do them. These people are of course wrong!

Wassily Kandinsky said, “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw, have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors and that you are a true poet. This last is essential.

As you can see the ability to start with a blank canvas and apply color in a harmonious and visually balanced is necessary. Abstract painting is much more than simply throwing or appling random colors in a random manner. Nestor Toro – Painter
