Art has parallelled the development of the world and offers us a visual insight into our cultures.
It helped to explain religious development.
it offered us a visual record of global exchanges, the industrialisation and economic development.
A sense of land acquisition and the personalities.
As the camera developed, the need for recording diminished.
Art then gave us an insight into modernisation - the expansion of education, media, the changing political landscapes, globalisation, communication and the internet.
Changes in the psychology.
Art form was questioned and moved beyond representation into expression.
We extended from canvas to the conceptual.
We now have vast choices within art. From realism, through impressionism, expressionism to abstraction, pop art and conceptual art.
We are all a blank canvas.
We choose the illusion - our personalities, our looks, our tribes.
The art on our walls is an extension of that. Are we trying to be classical or are we trying to shock and shake people up.
From classical to modernism.
The art on our walls - soothing, challenging tells the viewer something about us. The house, the car, the way we dress and our art communicates who we are trying to be.
Staid or exciting.
Dull or colourful.
Obvious or intellectual.
Random or structured.
All over the place or with a sense of culture.
Classical or Modern.
Lateralism is a journey.
Developing the theme, the stable of artists and the website will take time. As a gallery, we are looking to work with well-qualified, high quality artists who engage with lateralism and produce meaningful works.
