How Visual Art Affects a Person's Psychological State

Nowadays, it is considered almost a sign of good taste to have in the house the author's actual paintings in oil, rather than cheap and poor (or even good) to convey the color and texture of the original lithography. Even a copy is necessarily "made by hand," without technical means and copying equipment. Or, better yet, a completely original work of authorship. There is a specific, quite explainable reason for this.

It has long been known that artistic images, primarily paintings, have an energetic effect on a person and his condition. Even books were written about it - remember at least "The Picture of Dorian Gray." But in the novel, mysticism - is too much. Of course, there is no point in keeping such a painting in the house, but it is beneficial as a picture with positive, uplifting, and supportive energy.

Of course, art can not entertain as much as the Indian casino online, but it affects the person no less.

What is a picture's effect on the environment and people?
There are three main factors: the artist's mood at the time of painting, the material used, and the triad "subject - style - genre."

Let's start with the latter. In between are portraits, nudes, bodegas, and domestic and historical genres. Their appropriateness depends mainly on the subject and the room for which they are intended. A sensible person would not think to hang a "nude" in a child's room or the kitchen. But the battle genre and vanitas with its skulls and rotting fruits should be avoided. Needless to say, the tomb paintings have an evil influence on people, up to the destruction and annihilation of their owners!

Minimalist paintings
With caution and knowledge, it is worth considering pictures of the animalistic genre because animals originally metaphorically and allegorically symbolized human vices and virtues. These juxtapositions exist in the human subconscious, so the image of a pair of swans in the bedroom is much preferable to an attacking falcon or eagle. But this is the second aspect of the triad - the plot, which bears the information load.

Regarding the style - it is a matter of taste, but in all their variety, the closest to reality is preferable. A balanced combination of genre and style must match the plot - no need to choose "heavy," "intense" types. In general, assessing this triad, we can conclude that the styles, subjects, and genres worked out for centuries, which are perfectly manifested in copies of works by famous artists of the past, would be the most preferable. A copy of a 17th-century Dutch master's landscape certainly will not bring negative energy into your home.

The power of the impact of paintings on people

● The first aspect that determines the strength of the impact of a painting on a person is the material used in its creation. Scientists have established that natural olive oils (oils boiled uniquely) have a particular structure capable of "recording" the energy-informational signals. Specific matrixes appear in them, which keep the record indefinitely (until the paint made on this olive is destroyed). All other materials have a much "shorter" and "shallower" memory. This fact determines the preference for choosing paintings executed in oil on canvas (it also goes on a natural material). However, it should be borne in mind that oil paintings remember both positive and negative information equally well, so the canvas's plot, genre, and style are essential.

● The second, no less important element is the author of the work, the particular artist who created it, and his psychological mood. In the author's job, it is easy to see and feel even the untrained person - he will say that he likes it, he does not like it, not even knowing why.

In recent years in our country, "emotions" have been given very high importance: it is no coincidence that today almost any organization has a professional psychologist, and regularly seeking psychological help has become a natural norm of life for many people. However, let's not lag behind this practice and us: in this article, let's understand what connection exists between paintings as works of art and human emotions.

And first, let's define the concepts. So, emotions are experiences that have a powerful impact on the human mind and body. In this case, the experience of any person suggests that emotions can affect all aspects of human existence, which, in principle - is excellent. After all, it is no secret that people who are deprived of any emotions, as a rule, are on permanent treatment in psychiatric clinics.

Scientists note that each emotion can affect a person differently. So it is not by chance that everyone tries to surround himself with the most positive emotions and, if possible, to eliminate the negative aspects of our lives. To make a person's life blossom in bright colors, and there is art, which in our difficult times is a tremendous emotional "outlet," is given great importance.

How artworks in practice
Imagine that a person, tired and irritated after a hard day's work, sinks heavily into his favorite armchair at home and, for a few minutes, immerses himself in contemplation of his famous oil painting, which is located on the wall opposite. Experience shows that, in this case, negative emotions accumulated by a person during the day can recede and disappear most fantastically. For example, a pleasant summer landscape or a charming still life with roses can give the owner the feeling of serene joy and fill a person with new inner strength in just a few minutes.

But, this is on the condition that the artists' paintings in the house belong to the "your" paintings category. And in order, for example, oil paintings bring you only positive emotions, you need to understand two essential psychological aspects. First, looking at an oil painting, you should imagine what the artist was guiding his feelings when painting a canvas and what emotional message he wanted to pass people by his work. It's not always easy, but you always succeed if you have enough experience.

Secondly, you need to understand what emotional state you're experiencing when you're dealing with a given painting. And you need to approach your introspection with a somewhat "penetrating" approach and, as psychologists say, try to "dig" into yourself. Here is an example: let us imagine that in this picture, we see an incredible rural landscape with mopes of fresh hay and a horse in the background.

Most likely, many people will look at this oil painting, and that's it. But for a person who may have spent his entire childhood with his grandmother in the countryside, where it was so good and carefree, even after 30 or 40 years, the sight of freshly cut hay will fill the soul with something light and airy and return thoughts to the happiest time of his life.

Pay attention that everyone's emotions in this plan will be different, and they will be based on their experience, associations, and their emotional base of perception of the world. It is also worth noting that the symbols and the chosen color scheme play a significant role in the emotional perception of the paintings. So, for example, everyone knows that the red color contributes to emotional excitement, while the green color calms the human psyche.

You see, artists' paintings can bring up very different emotions. So we wish you find the pictures that will influence you most positively and enjoy their ability to bring you joy and contentment with life.
