The church painting is almost done… Posting the final version on Saturday!
Most people think of artists as ‘right brained’ people. Artists see the world a little differently and use visualization instead of language to communicate. I always found this an interesting idea. Being a person who loves to use both images and language, my understanding of the world is not so one sided.
I was watching the news last week and saw an interview with Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroscientist that experienced the right side of her brain due to stroke. Her left brain and language centers were completely unable to function and her experience of existence was completely altered. She began to visualize instead of verbalize and began to see herself in an entirely new way.
I found Ms. Bolte Taylor’s descriptions fascinating. They offered a new point of view for me about how our brains connect us with the world and how each side plays a function in our experience of reality. I thought it to be very worth sharing.
