Some Painted Veils
Works of art lend themselves to a strangely great variety of approaches. This cannot be said of many man made things, there is usually just one way of looking at a machine, and it may be dangerous to approach it with the wrong idea in mind. But where works of art are concerned, people hold many different opinions, not to say prejudices. One of your friends will insist that a picture must have a clearly recognisable subject, preferably a story. Another will just as enthusiastically assure you that a recognisable subject, let alone a story is a bad thing; that you ought to look at a work of art as a combination of shapes and colours only, and that you are hopelessly old fashioned if you insist on looking for something else in addition. However, there is only one way to approach a work of art and that is with a receptive mind and heart, and to give it a chance to speak for itself.
The Exhibition Some Painted Veils, is unsentimental, well-paced, painted and crafted with style, and moral in the sense that the artists have searched for a higher purpose in life than the merely sensual. It is well worth a visit.
