About Lola Di Paolo
If I could analyze my work, I would say:
The emotions triggers the thought
The thought triggers the image (The phrase or the sound)
It is an instant reaction.
IF YOU GET NOTHING FROM A PAINTING
It may be because:
1 The picture itself is worthless, and has nothing to give
2 You may be looking for something in the picture that was never intended to be there.
3 Your particular mood of the moment may prevent you seeing a picture that may speak to you later
4 The psychological type of the artist may be so far removed from you own personality that you may never enter into communication with any of his works.
5 You may unconsciously resent a picture in which you do not understand the style, particularly if the style is new to you.
6 You may dislike the subject matter, rejecting it quickly on that basis without going further.
7 Or you may be tone deaf to painting in general, be interested in other things and never feel the need of painting at all.
