“In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism, skepticism and humbug, and we shall want to live more musically.” ― Vincent van Gogh
Have you ever wondered why Van Gogh wanted to paint the Starry Night? Could it be that he wanted to see something entirely on its own, without any trace of personal bias that says more about the subject than the marvel itself?
There seems to be no way of getting away from ourselves except through art. That is what good art does; i.e., it removes our preoccupation with self, allowing for a transcendent experience. You know in your heart of hearts the divinity that embraces you when the beauty of art transforms your way of perceiving.
Who cares about all that la-di-da that the art critics get on with. How they schmooze each other into intoxicating fuss. Why not keep it simple and to the point. Without question it is apparent to me that Van Gogh attempted to bring heaven down to earth.
How so? You don’t need to believe me or take my word for it. Check out the video above and see for yourself. In this brief presentation you can watch Van Gogh’s painting come to life in a way that will naturally transport you into another world.
