Quotes...


 Symbols should assist us in tapping
the depths of our souls where we can begin to unearth 'Noble Solutions' for the sake of Humanity.

 

 Ana Bikic is challenging the very fundamentals of modern art by questioning the fabric of its content.
 


Ana Bikic's

revolutionary thoughts on the responsibilities of artists to interpret our history and define our future are challenging the very fundamentals of modern art.

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Abstract and Conceptual Art has surpassed its usefulness,and Ana Bikic is calling on all artists to restore the value system which is at the heart of EcoSymbolism.
M.Lowman


 

Artists are entrusted with creative gifts that are intended to inspire humanity,Ana Bikic says.

Careful selection of symbols in contemporary art may impress—or depress—the audience,but most importantly these symbols should  assist us in tapping the depths of our souls where we can begin to unearth.

A New Movement in Art.
   

My art has been inspired by the energy and power of creation.

I invite you ....

To follow the trend of communication ,like the notes from a symphony,

Symbols surround us all ,up lift us,or depress us.

 Ecosimbolism Art 
Defined ideas NobleSolutions

This is not a general term referring to a hierarchy of principles alone but rather a more inclusive and inquiring knowledge regarding all perspectives.

Composing the solution to present a common and encompassing conclusion that seems logical to all possibilities.

Noble solutions come from servicing the principle of positive and confident communication,mindful respect for others and persuasiveness.
icon art + Inspiration = evolution

Iconography in art is a title given to important works and common symbols.

Subjects favored as icons are plentiful,obvious and constant.

Inspiration for creativity is not a flash and copy process but rather the continuous rhythm of ignition...

 As solutions require each new adjustment throughout the creative process.

Laborious techniques therefore loose the true intensity of inspiration.

Iconic art is what lasts longest in our memories of joy.

Art that ignores this principle is 'visual spam'.

      Integrity of content

The public opinion of art is low,modernists are ignored and traditionalists are unchallenged.

Both styles have left a void of interest beset with disbelief.

Artistic integrity comes from the ability to impress and improvise with originality and confidence.

Subject matter is a choice, judgement of content is inevitable.
        Symbols as icons

Our collective humanistic experience shares common sentiments of family,love and peace to enjoy life. 

All symbols that express admiration and reverence for ourselves,our good spirits and surroundings become energized ,celebrated and part of the continuous debate on worth,value and hope.
             ECOSYMBOLISM ART

         THOUGHTS

Pure self expression is as decadent as the art it first set out to replace.

Ornament is now an adjective common to modernism, ironic but true.

Art,as function ;requires taste and awareness of its final destinationand ensuing reaction.
 Iconic Art;with symbolic inspiration, should compete in free market with all tools of debate and arguement ,Informed Public opinion does curate well.

Artistic License belongs to Licensed artists....
expressions of fact and science require study.

Universal Symbols; 
Family,Love,Food,
Shelter,Community,
Environment & Health
=Purpose

The rhythm of life'

Dancing !
Architypes and Evolution.

Definitive symbolic images bring communication like notes of a symphony,symbolic iconography inspires by teasing evoluted / evolved memory.

           If all are artists define Fine Artist..
                 by requirements of study.

               ECOSYMBOLISM ART 

               AIMS
To create dialogue between audience and subject from the inspiration of the natural world and the integrity of content.

 Accessibility, understanding and acknowledgment of the subject expression come from authentic, original artistic sensibility and skill.

Techniques of application and expression are measurable by orthodox and academic guides.

Degrees of difficulty and advancement of technique allow for a range of expression far beyond the commercial or commonplace.

Dialogue is convincing with honorable effort, effect and substance.

Artistic license emanates from  committed,authentic artists! 

ECOSYMBOLISM ART


                WORKS
As a catalyst between audience and logical conclusions in science.

With deep understanding and the expression of positivism,artists can inspire change and hope can evolve.

 Ecology is the harmony between living things,the logic of the existence of the natural world.

Since before the cave paintings at Lascaux,artists have put their efforts toward understanding our environment and our place in it.

Conservation and protection of that world is now the stimulus.

Respected artists have tried to fill the gap between science and a sustained interest to educate, inform, influence and provoke a response to action.

It is this proactive role that art,most recently distracted by soft targets of materialism and the swiftest means to entertainment and commercialism,has not shouldered. Thus, art has also lost credibility for most.

 As Science pursues understanding to apply positive alternatives to disharmony and destruction,endlessly adjusting to new discovery,so Art must pursue new aesthetic solutions, alternatives to despair,which communicate and inspire humanity’s revaluations.
       ECOSYMBOLISM ART
         EMBRACES 

The gift of creativity, as shared, by creating a dialogue to refocus our perspectives of life together on earth.

By using the symbols of our collective knowledge,we reaffirm the universality of being.
With this concept it is hoped that the next generation of students and committed professionals looking for new challenges will provide another renaissance of icons, ideas and ideals in art,Such universality and inclusivity  must become renewed proactive and progressive concepts,a necessary direction forward in an expression of hope.

As a result of this challenge and dialogue, it is hoped that respect for our discipline will initiate an awareness, acceptance and appreciation.

Nurture of application with a renewal of interest will bring both intellectual and financial reward.

Freedom, dialogue, respect, and constructive debate remain as vital and imperative for the growth and fruition of art,as in all human endeavors.
           ECOSYMBOLISM ART 

        Challenges

visual artists to understand,within the universal dialect of symbolism,the power of the symbols
& the moral responsibility of their usage .

 Most formats of canvas, sculpture and craft are created for the artifact's effect: an appreciation of both form and content.

Apart from decoration or utility, purpose in art is therefore to communicate meaning, to enhance understanding of the universal human condition.

Symbols provoke reactions that are universal, predictable and obvious if responsible intent is invested, and the audience is engaged.

 

 ECOSYMBOLISM ART

                     OFFERS

 positivism expressed with an intellectual and emotional integrity of content and dramatic originality of form and technique empowered by the visual language of symbols.
 

Our heritage is our language of symbols.

Art of integrity,addressing the universal human condition,with an awareness of and respect for the natural world,a social conscience and empathy for others,and an ethical responsibility and moral dimension,may yet inspire positive feeling, hope, and a future of harmony and peace.

Symbols correctly designed in context have given us the most powerful iconography in art history.
 

             ECOSYBOLISM ART

           HOPES
To create a more profound iconography for art that aspires to inspire hope and noble solutions through a new dialogue which utilizes the positive, universal symbols of the human experience.

If we are to communicate and further inspire direction and possibility with creativity,content must come from study and responsibility.

Forms that reveal attention to detail and originality of design  and respect generally
command audience attention, iconography is the residue of time upon art history.

Statues have gone to cannon, pictures to kindling,as the tastes and fashion of the moment evolve.


What works in art generally survives time and history.

When art fails, it meets inevitable destiny.

Modernism has given us a legacy for freedom of expression but also the chaos of disinterest, discredit and disrespect.
What makes sense will be the lasting voice heard by most and echoed within as true.
