I think that museums today are conserving not only art objects, but the secret of the art. If your project is a copy of Marcel Duchamp, there is a goose in your art project, better than the birds of prey metaphor.
Fledgling pictures are so complex, aren't they ? The metaphoric salad is vigilant about maintaining its artistic integrity as it moves into the mainstream.
Metaphorical caged canaries were placed in coal mines to warn of dangerous gases in the twentieth century. Using too much figures of speech is dropping a pebble in still water. The common visual metaphor for bird of prey is flying above daily art.
Sloths are used as metaphor for upside down art and slow painting.
The big artist keeps an eye on nature and steals her tools.
Thomas Eakins, Love birds, and the metaphors they wing into our lives.
Sloth is not a metaphorical picture for lazy artists but cool animals living in very tall trees cultivating the art of doing nothing. Looking at the reification of avoiding missing the forest for the trees: I'm way outside my comfort zone with this visual fragment of laziness and cute metaphor.
The figures suggestion of pregnancy is further indicated through the Chinese metaphor that reading a book nourishes the growth of ideas in the mind, like a child developing in the womb.
The old metaphor of naked truth generates a view of our world that is also not counterintuitive.
How to be totally and utterly useless because of rabbits and scapegoats talking about antanaclasis? Cool animals depict the bucolic beauty of visual metaphors, and that's fine.
The best metaphor about art is life itself
Art as a metaphor for death. The wisest picture has something yet to learn from silly artworks.
The real world is a difficult place for images because there is no place online for mixed art. The visual metaphors hold positions in order to survive what could be a long winter.
Andy Warhol, Water birds are outsider artists testing the waters before plunging in.
But the bottom line is irrelevant pictures of artworks as example of metaphors used in visual arts are as gregarious as termites. We are the internet and ruptures of interdisciplinary boundaries. Ludicrous artworks pave the way for easily drawn symbols.
He has done like Orbaneja, the painter of Ubeda, who, being asked what he painted, answered, "As it may hit;" and when he had scrawled out a misshapen cock, was forced to write underneath, in Gothic letters,"This is a cock.". So preposterously designed that he was forced to write under it in large capital This is a cock."
Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) Don Quixote
Metaphorically speaking, metaphors about art are birds of prey, a very different, disconcerting picture.
Mermaid walking a cute metaphor
Mermaid motif, human-animal mixed hybrid, represents aspiration to pursue the highest metaphorical expressions.
Would curses kill, as doth the mandrake's groan.
Shakespeare: King Henry VI
The content of art is never its subject.
Leo van Puyvelde
In mythology, doors suggest the transition from one world to another, because the best drawing ideas are cryptic, unresolved and illegible.
