Arts in Painting

Arts and paintings are considered to be one of the forms of literature. Arts and paintings represent the reality of our world in the way other literature like poetry, drama or fiction does. It can be classified under the category of visual arts however its importance has been accepted as in the position of higher importance from the time immemorial.



It holds an important position like music and other forms of arts in literature. Painting or visual art is like other forms of art which holds the capacity of expression of individual thought and feeling achieved through the creative process. An artist seeks to share his or her experiences, observations, and understanding through the medium that most effectively lends itself to their personal skills and abilities. Whether artists are writing stories, painting pictures, writing music, composing a photograph, or creating a film, they are expressing their relationship to the world around them at that moment.Their works share certain expressive elements, such as structure, theme, and tone.

Art connects human beings to each other in that sense it allows us to share each other's perceptions, emotions, and experiences. A gifted artist may capture creatively what we feel but cannot express ourselves. Literature and the other fine arts are all similar in that aspect. Visual arts or paintings use colors to expresses what poetry or drama expresses through the use of words or letters. Color holds the dominant role in visual art since it is generally associated with color symbolism to convey the message. Some paintings are very easy to understand and some are very complex. To interpret the complex paintings we must use the special skill and creativity to analyze the paintings as artists do.

Paintings help us to understand and recognize the things very quickly. If one is taking help of verbal art to understand the same thing, comparatively it will take longer time because verbal art requires imagination in the mind to grasp the exact sublime or beauty of the art. Instead painting of the same image is like readymade pictures which are supposed to be more vivid and beautiful. Another advantage of visual art is it can be understood by uneducated people if the painting is simple in theme. With the help of painting one can understand nature or the object more because he or she can associate himself or herself with nature very closely. Art or the painting objects stand in the position of signifier which signified the concrete things from this universe.

This is how we connect all the art mediums and literature in terms of similarity. They all have different signifiers trying to denote the signified. The most important thing is that both art and painting one way the other holds the similar position in terms of introducing and communicating any work of art.
