​Practical Criticism

The points I found interest

For about the reading session, it was quite meaningful. Everyone said own idea throughout the article. We talked about roughly three topics that the future of painting, why we paint, and what the painting is


Firstly, about the future of painting, we found the successful model of the balance between business and artistic idea in the recent music industry.  However, music is the medium which can engage with any other industries quite naturally, on the other hand, we found it is difficult to engage painting to something because painting is limited by the format. In order to think about the future of painting, that is important that how to beyond the format of paint on canvas, and how to find something to engage with painting.


Secondly, regarding why we paint, we defined that is the natural desire of nature want to express nature. And painting activity includes all physical activity so that it is highly connecting the sense of ecstasy. "Passion" might be a crucial element of painting activity.


Thirdly, the idea about what the painting at the present is, we found it could be a visible idea and a visual global language. Mostly painters paint a painting to find out what we are. As in the text, painting at the present is something to read like a text, but not to watch. Some say that in the UK, education starts with the reading text, so art education also spreads from reading. Painting is a kind of visual index of the idea.
