I don’t like realistic paintings

The Mother and Son

  ” I don’t like realistic paintings. ” he said.

” What do you mean by realistic painting? ” I asked him.

” Painting things the way they appear. ”

” Do you call it realistic painting? ” I asked him.

” is it not? ” he was bewildered.

” Not at all. ”


” if you interpret the images, which are visible to your eyes, it is art. Once you interpret them they are not coming on canvas as they appear to your eyes. Viewers are interested to see how an artist sees or interprets the same visual that they are seeing everyday. If your artistic interpretation is effective that will be … a work of art, whether it is realistic or abstract. ”
