This is my first post in weblog challenge. I hope you enjoy it.
In English class we discussed about art, especially abstract art. I remembered 3 or 4 years ago me and my friend went to an exhibit. There were some abstract paintings. We weren’t good at interpreting abstract paintings and we just said nonsensical definition instead of the meaning of each painting and laughed. After a while the artist came to us and asked us do enjoy my paintings? “Oh! Yes.” My friend said. But I told the truth. “Your paintings are really nice, of course they are, but if you don’t get disappointed I don’t get their meaning. Would you mind tell us about this painting meaning?” She smiled kindly and said "why not?"
Let me describe the painting for you before I tell what she said.
There was a super big cup of tea in the middle of the picture and there where a lot of tiny things such as ruler, book, radio, TV, telephone, hummer, suitcase, pen, car, plate, newspaper, building, etc around the cup. The artist asked us “what is your idea? what does it mean to you?” We looked at it carefully and my friend said "It shows a big cup and small things that remember me the work and social communication. I think it wants to say we shouldn’t let our entertainments get all our time and don’t let us to do our tasks well."
The artist said “Good” then turned to me and told "What’s your opinion?"
I turned to my friend and told “I disagree with you, I think it wants to say you shouldn’t let the social media and your job take all your time and don’t let you have a little time for yourself. It wants to emphasis on your own time by showing a huge cup of tea.” Then we asked the artist “Which idea is right?” She smiled and said "both of them are right. Maybe someone else comes and says another thing. He will be right too. Because this kind of abstract paintings are the mirror of you and your life and your personality so anyone is not wrong."
After that I became a fan of abstract art but still I need someone to interpret that for me.
