CONTEMPORARY ART PAINTING. CONTEMPORARY ART 21ST CENTURY-XXI.
NEW ARTISTS TODAY.
In the XXI century, in our contemporary era, the world is changing dramatically with a speed that is beyond us. Contemporary art, a true reflection of what is happening, does not seem to change with these rapid movements that make the world tremble. If art is supposed to be the expression of human beings and their emotions (through technical skill) why is not this unstoppable acceleration reflected in innovations in contemporary art? It is certainly arguable that they are not reflected in any way, but in any case both ways, art and reality, do not run parallel right now. I think it's simply a matter of survival, an indication that the human being, in its essence, walks slower than the world it's creating. His psychological evolution and adaptation to the environment are incomparably slower than the meteoric technological progress that we are witnessing. And I think that it has always been this way, but now the differences in "time" are occurring in an exponential way; it could be said that man cannot digest the vast information available to the rate at which it is produced. The "Homo Sapiens Sapiens" is inventing and creating worlds that escape emotionally from him, not digested as quickly as it should. Our art, at this rate, will be inexorably primitive. I wonder if this is bad and I think it is not because we will realize -and art will be a sign that will lead us- that or we adapt the world to our evolutionary rates or it will destroy us.
Contemporary art in all its facets, painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, film, music, will give us the exact measure of how we are adapted to the environment we are creating.
Let us look carefully at contemporary art, let us investigate its meaning and its daily development. With care and sensitivity, we will listen to its message and it will allow us to know if we are able to evolve and adapt, in equilibrium.
