After this exhibition, I (again) am surprised how big the difference is between viewing and judging a painting in the internet and seeing it as an original in an exhibition.
I think the people tend to forget that there is no such neutral viewing through internet and print media. Probably over 90% of how we look at paintings, are over smart phones/ tablets and computers. But there isn’t a single one that can accurately achieve the likeness of a painting. The instant we see the picture the opinion has formed and is set in stone. But you can’t depict the color nuances, brush strokes, how pigments glow and the size of a painting and the impact it will have on you, if watched via Smart phone or print media.
My advice: Go to as many exhibitions as possible and see with your own eyes the difference it can make.
