Creating is fundamental to being alive. Art making is a communication skill, one that some believe defines humananity. There are heights to the intellect that cannot be achieved through logical reasoning alone, nothing can replace the knowledge one gains from exploring the imagination.
The passive act of viewing Art is equally as powerful. There are countless accounts of patients reporting ‘feeling better’ after looking at paintings and plenty of scientific data now available to prove this. Art infuses our being with positive energy, reducing stress and promoting a sense of calm. In 1860, Florence Nightingale wrote about the effect of “beautiful objects” on sickness and recovery, “Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by color and light, we do know they have an actual physical effect.” It is undoubtedly true that people who are suffering illness find solace in Art. To enjoy a lifestyle of wellness, it is essential that we feed our bodies with nutritious food. So too our soul has needs, it may be possible to prescribe Art as preventative medicine, as it is to advocate proper dietary nutrition.
