Our Philosophy

Beauty is truly a magnificent force that has the ability to inspire, uplift, and bring out the best in every individual. It is not just limited to the physical appearance, but encompasses a much deeper meaning. Beauty has the power to stimulate our mind, body, and soul, igniting a sense of wonder and awe within us. When we encounter something beautiful, whether it be a breathtaking work of art, a mesmerizing natural phenomenon, or even a simple act of kindness, it has the ability to touch our hearts and leave a lasting impact.

As Fyodor Dostoevsky once said, “beauty will save the world.” This statement holds true in so many ways. The beauty that surrounds us has the potential to transform our lives and the world we live in. It has the power to awaken our senses, broaden our horizons, and nurture our souls. When we are exposed to beauty, we are inspired to create, to dream, and to aspire for greatness. It fuels our artistic vision and allows us to see the world through a different lens.

Furthermore, beauty has the remarkable ability to foster a sense of community among individuals. It brings people together, transcending boundaries and differences. When we appreciate beauty collectively, we form connections with others who share the same admiration. Whether it is attending an art exhibition, visiting a scenic location, or participating in cultural events, these experiences create a sense of camaraderie and unity. The shared appreciation for beauty creates a bond that surpasses any barriers and reinforces our sense of belonging.

In a world that can sometimes be chaotic and overwhelming, beauty provides solace and tranquility. It acts as a source of comfort and refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether it is finding solace in a stunning sunset or seeking serenity in a beautifully composed piece of music, beauty has the power to bring peace and quiet to our hearts. It reminds us of the inherent goodness and harmony that exists in the world and allows us to find respite amidst the chaos.

In conclusion, beauty is not just a superficial concept but rather a fundamental aspect of human existence. It has the ability to inspire us, ignite our artistic vision, and foster a sense of community. It brings out the best in everyone by stimulating our mind, body, and soul. It is through the appreciation of beauty that we can aspire for a perfect life filled with peace and tranquility. Let us embrace the beauty that surrounds us and allow it to guide us towards a brighter future.

Our belief

Beauty is a concept that holds immense importance in the realm of aesthetics. It is not just about the outer appearance but also about the inner essence that defines a person. As Ovid wisely said, “forma bonum fragile est” – outer beauty is fragile, but the inner beauty is eternal. It is this inner beauty that surpasses the aesthetics of physical attributes or clothing. We can even speak of an aesthetic of human nature, where the essence, vitality, and permanence are found. It is through the eyes of the mind that we can truly see beyond appearances and delve into the depths of reality.

The sense of beauty extends far beyond the boundaries of fine arts. It permeates all aspects of human existence and plays a crucial role in our lives. Aesthetic theory explores the essence of beauty and its impact on our moral and aesthetic activities. However, despite its significance, aesthetic theory has often been overlooked. There seems to be a lack of motivation to delve into this subject and speculate on its intricacies. Perhaps it is the subjective nature of beauty that makes it difficult to define and understand fully.

Traditional dualisms further contribute to the neglect of the vitality of beauty. They encourage us to focus solely on external appearances and overlook the profound impact that inner beauty can have. Just like Perseus being struck by Medusa’s beauty, we are often captivated by superficial attributes and forget to explore the depths within ourselves and others. It is only when we take the time to truly look beyond appearances that we can appreciate the true beauty that lies within.

In a world where everything seems fleeting, beauty stands as an indispensable aspect of our lives. It gives us a reason to appreciate and engage with the world around us. The fragility of outer beauty reminds us to seek something more enduring – the essence, vitality, and permanence that lies within. It is through cultivating our aesthetic senses and embracing the beauty within ourselves and others that we can truly make our lives meaningful and fulfilling. So let us not just be captivated by superficial appearances but strive to see and appreciate the multifaceted reality that lies beneath the surface.

The Principles of Art & Design

The principles of art represent how the artist uses the elements of art to create an effect and to help convey the artist’s intent. The artistic value of an art composition is based on the principles of art and design: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity.

Visual art foundation language contain elements and principles that we usewhen we talk about art. The artist uses elements of art like line, shape, colour, value, form, texture and space to create a composition.

The decision of what principles of art to use stays with the artist. Artists might not use all the principles in the same piece due to their interconnection, so that the use of one will often depend on another. For example, when creating emphasis, the artist might also be using contrast or vice versa.

To be successful, and visual art piece needs unity and balance, while also having some variety created by areas of contrast and emphasis.

Art is the concentration of life, transcendence and transfiguration, but it cannot be revolted against fundamental harmonies; on the contrary, it brings them closer to us, intensifies them, reveals them to us.
