Free interpretation of the painting “Depression” by Aurora Mazzoldi

The painting “Depression” shows how introspective paintings can establish a contact with the viewer and how, sometimes, they can even inspire a poem.

Depression

Imprisoned

In a cage

Of thought words

Spoken words

Realised words

Good deeds for neighbours

Always

Repressed

Desires

Imprisoned

(Poem by Anabella Freimann, translated from German)

Introspective paintings are a world of their own. They show reality through the filter of their creator.

A painting can promote reflection and allow you to enter the world it depicts; or it can just be a beautiful piece of furniture, an object that you like to keep in your home; why? Because it goes well with the coach…

Introspective art paintings have something different. Of course they should be, first, beautiful paintings and then, have something more. What? They should be paintings to find yourself, to recognize some aspect of you every time you look at them. How is this possible? We all have something in common; if a work of art represents what is inside of us, everyone should notice it.

Introspective art paintings are good for decoration, but they are made for inner research.

If you hang introspective art paintings in your home, each of those paintings can become a member of your family!

S. put up a painting of a doll in her granddaughter’s room and, after a few days, she called me and said: “Just think, the little girl has agreed to sleep alone because now a little friend is in her room.” A friend of mine, not having children, has hung another of my paintings of dolls in his studio….

Paintings of introspective art are not only objects for decoration – they do not hang on the wall like inanimate and silent objects, closed in a world of immobility – they are open paintings, which interact with you.

Their characters speak the telepathic language of symbols and you will be able, in time, to establish contact with them and … with yourself; it is a contact with a part of your being which – represented before your eyes – you can now observe and listen to. In this way, you can start an inner research.

You can now choose a painting for its aesthetic, or the one that most invites you to talk with.
