Artists delve into the past through personal memories and cultural histories.
The body's arty molecule, dopamine, is triggered by the mere anticipation of something novel. Many artworks have wrecked on the shoals of neuroscience, but our neurons need images for their living.
Reminiscence is not precision and truth in art is not skill and life-like accuracy. Inaccessible worlds and forgotten histories are about paintings that makes them memorable. Borderline art and crazy paintings must be more worth remembering than a perfect photography of Alois Alzheimer.
Mental life (memory, imagination...) is embodied in the whole range of material media.
W.J.T. Mitchell, What do pictures want ? Pictures require time and free space.

Visual humor has leadership to built memory from Adam and Eve early times.
The last sentence is the section in an art web site where hippocampal neurons are gravely remembered. This is an intriguing reminder that in neuronal art we should always be careful of giving a simple answer. However art helps to retard the ageing process because brainy artworks have more grey matter.
Unlike sleep-dependent consolidation, wake consolidation strengthened a context-independent representation of objects and was independent of hippocampal function.
The past exists only in our neuronal memory. Good pictures understand that artists careers begin as projects with uncertain futures. Shallow art cause amnesia and other things I can't remember.
