Interpreting Art

How does one even interpret art? Art is defined as a creative work of a human. But if you ask an artist, they might say that it is a form of expressing themselves. If you ask a commoner, they might say it is a form of aesthetic pleasure. Hence, would it be agreeable if I said that art is a form of self-interpretation?

Every March, Art Dubai holds an international art exhibition fair that showcases artwork Dubai and artwork from over 40 different countries. This is a major event in the international arts calendar where art consultants, especially hotel art consultants from Art Consultancy Dubai are called to duty to inspect arts of different forms. This is when more than 28,000 visitors of this paramount event perform “self-interpretation” for over 90 galleries of artwork.
In this art exhibition, all artwork is opened to self-interpretation – an old man sitting down may look like a young boy bending over to others. The word “Beat” may look like a labyrinth from another perspective. Strokes of greenery may look like stripes to one but a dense forest to another gazer. A wall of strange wordings may mean graffiti to some but something far more meaningful to another. It is commonly said that the beauty in art, is in the hands of its’ beholder.
Some say that art is an intense way of self-individualism. Just like how human beings are unique from another, so is no art ever the exact same (yes even imitators!). That can also mean that interpretation of art can vary since everyone is one-of-a-kind.

If you ever walk into an art gallery and be worried about how you would not be able to appreciate and interpret art the way the pros are, do not be! For art means differently to everyone! What you may think is a mind-blowing art may not be so impressive to another. So if you think you are not appreciating the artwork enough or not being able to interpret anything, maybe you should try another art gallery instead.

Overall, what I am saying is tha there is no right or wrong in interpreting art. It does not matter what the “pros” tell you. However, what is important is not interpreting art itself but experiencing it in its’ purest forms. In today’s technological age, we may only have smaller divisions of society who can appreciate and/or produce art to further conserve the industry.
