“It took me 4 years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” By Pablo Picasso. There is something in their acceptance of life that seems childlike, the distortion group exhibit shows how artists play with paints where the colors were their toys.
Distortion is a change of reality’s depiction, a hallucination, and distortion of reality, altering it in a way that one is still able to identify the image.
Artists are free to depict whatever they want to in whatever manner they like; they use their imaginations, to express the idea and meaning. The purpose of art is not to depict reality- it is to transform reality into something more interesting and meaningful. And the only way to do it is to distort, exaggerate, or in some way embellish what is there. Supernormal stimuli excite us more than reality does.
Artists Atemay3ng, Cinos, Miki Mulingtapang, Ramona Gaston, Baltek, Isad Diwa, Oben, Ren Quinio, Burgs, Jade Suayan, Quatro Hapimeel, Tsis Sultan, CHNO, Lee Salvador, Ram De Verdera and Two front teeth, tend to do more both string of emotion and feeling, resentment of the piece over any sense of realism. They capture the atmosphere through color, in a single painting, they use their instinctive powers of visual language, to say everything they want to say about art.
As Henri Matisse quote says, “The effort to see things without distortion takes something like courage and this courage is essential to the artist, who has to look at everything as though he saw it for the first time”.
