Why Did Mankind Need To Make Picture?

Definition:

painting; to understand, to show understanding and to present it to others to see.


The need for painting for humanity is, from another perspective, an image work from abstract to concrete and sometimes from concrete to abstract. Drawing things is the name of existence for human beings in a sense, human beings are obliged to do so. Painting is the first art of man. By painting, human beings have put their thoughts into drawing in the most concrete form.

People want to paint their feelings in lines in order to share, understand and be understood, which is one of the most beautiful aspects of living together. Therefore, the need to paint in its most basic form has arisen from a necessity in terms of thought, mind, emotion and social life.


"Painting is the place where all the feelings of love, enthusiasm, hate, and all human feelings are displayed. It is expressed in pictures with dreams. It is the width of the human horizon.."

The science of history tells us that in the primitive age, people lived in the cave as the first settlement dwelling. We can only get an idea of ​​how the people lived of this period, which we can call natural life, from the shapes they drew in caves.


In these periods when writing was not invented yet, people drawing shapes on cave walls can be regarded as the birth of painting. It can also be understood that the first text is a picture.


These drawings in the caves show that the art of painting is as old as human history. These shapes on the walls, which we can consider as the birth of painting, were primarily a necessity for that day.


There was also a message that those drawings gave to people later and even today. Primitive people presented a meaningful message with a little scribble. Drawings that we can call proof of existence; it showed the fact that there was once someone who lived here. In a sense, if one wanted to survive at work, one had to paint.


In the later periods of history, human beings have ensured the impoverishment of mind and emotion with painting. The talents in people, the power of mind, the breadth of dreams and the beauty in the souls have revealed other artistic activities thanks to the aesthetic activity of painting.



Emergence Of Civilization

Painting has an important connection with the settlement of man on the earth and the emergence of civilization. All the wondrous inventions in the universe and the beauty in the world show the most exquisite art. In nature, colorful flowers, countless birds, various trees. Mankind himself is a great art.

The world is almost an open air art gallery. These artistic beauties in the world have pushed people to reveal their own civilization, aesthetic understanding and artistic philosophy.


People show the wonders of their thoughts by drawing. In this way, they realize their aesthetic understanding that combines mind and emotion by taking great pleasure from these drawings. This leads to the discovery of the happiness way of displaying pleasures, beyond seeing the need for painting as a mere necessity for human beings. I think this is the request dimension in the need to paint. Because every artist wants to reveal art and to be seen by others.


If reason is the key to discovering treasures for human beings, I believe that humanity will discover this key through fine arts, especially painting. Man needed magical touches for the journey of discovery. And Painting was over there for the magic touch.


The need for painting for humanity is, from another perspective, an image work from abstract to concrete and sometimes from concrete to abstract. Drawing things is the name of existence for human beings in a sense, human beings are obliged to do so.


As you will notice, the picture that everyone draws is different when we think of it together with the detail lines. Why is this so? Why is the picture drawn by anyone is not exactly the same as anyone else's?


Because panting is a reflection of character. We all live in a world, but everyone has a inner world in their own right. As a matter of fact, it is possible to have an idea about important issues such as personality world, level of opinion and world view from the pictures drawn by a person.


People needed to paint!


There are moments when people put into pictures what they cannot say. They kind of make their silent screams heard. She pours her inside onto the canvas, weaves her love on the rug, she embroiders his love on the embroidery.


Painting is the place where all the feelings of love, enthusiasm, hate, and all human feelings are displayed. It is expressed in pictures with dreams. It is the width of the human horizon.


We try to announce to everyone what we have experienced, our sorrows, concerns, regrets, happiness and excitement, even the events, situations and people that cause them from time to time by painting them with different colors, currents, brushes, shapes and textures.

In fact we need to make our voices heard with our picture at the same rate. We start with a white canvas in front of us, a variety of colors next to us, and a brush with a wooden handle.


An indication that we paint not only our emotions but also the ideas that govern us and that we want to convey to people near or far. More than twenty art movements known from history to the present have not only managed paintings and painters, but also managed people and ideas in society for centuries.


One of the main factors that determine our needs is our innate motives. Art plays a big role in expressing, describing, revealing, qualifying, extending the life of man and transferring it to something eternal.


We do this sometimes by writing poetry, pouring it into a book, associating it with philosophy, reflecting it on notes, and sometimes crowning it with painting. The main thing used for describing and conveying nature are words, and painting is the name of what occurs when all the senses and installations in words are blended and combined in both concrete and abstract terms.


In other words, nature leaves itself to words and words to painting, and the cycle ends in this way and reaches perfection.


However, there are situations where words cannot compensate for the magical state of nature. In these situations where words are incapacitated, painting comes into play and it turns all magic into a masterpiece that satisfies the soul. Yes, by painting, human beings have put their thoughts into drawing in the most concrete form.
