“eye mind sky” by Tullio DeSantis, 2013
Filed under ARTology Now
Wow, when I first saw this piece I could clearly see the blue sky of summer. It made me feel so warm and peaceful, like the clouds moving across the sky, with a slow wind, and the birds singing. Moreover, I found it to be very inspirational; it also shows how out of clutter and discord, you can still find simplicity and harmony, for in the middle of hardships you can find hope.
This painting is a beautiful blue. It this painting is a because blue. It reminds me of three things. It is the color of the eye. If also depicts the state of a healthy mind. Finally, it is the color of the sky. This color blue calms the eye. This color blue also soothes the inner mind.
4. Now this piece really drew my attention. The whole layout of the piece looks as if you’re looking into the sky. When I look at this piece, I can see it move, as If I were looking at the sky. Like your other works, great piece!
Retinal deliverance of diluted signals, infiltrate my mind.
A deep penetration of cerebral misgivings, confuse my perception of the color of the sky.
Vibrations within my epidermal sheath, warn me of a storm on the horizon.
An epic eruption of indigo and violet, gives way to a faded blue before its light frequencies pierce my pupils.
Receptors masquerading as truth seekers deliver a lie dressed in azure.
Rods and cones pulsate, projecting an illusion of exaggerated proportion.
Optic nerves transmitting impulses of falsities.
Countless hues, tints and shades conjure on the palette of my mind.
This painting is so simple, yet there is something unique about it that makes it stand out. The bright blue color reminds me of the day time sky while the yellow dots remind me of a bright yellow star that stands out. When I look at this painting, I feel as if I am outside during a beautiful spring day relaxing on the grass looking up at the sky and enjoying the warm breeze outside. Even though stars cannot really be seen during the day time, this painting gives me a sense of what it might be like to see stars during the day. This is a simple yet beautiful painting.
When I first saw this picture, it reminded me instantly a little of Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. But as I sat looking at it for a few minutes made me realize that it wasn’t really like that at all. This picture is more about how our mind perceives the sky in its entirety. The lights that are so far out of reach and we stare at them, thinking of the different colors they must be, the shapes they must take, the ones invisible to the human eye.
Most perceptive, Abigail. Your perceptions are close to the way I see this piece, as well.
