art as a mirror…

I think that in any art, weather it is a painting or a work of poetry, the artist just gives you the half or maybe even less of the whole experience. the rest is to the person that looks/listens at it. when you enjoy art you bring with you your culture, personal believes and ideas. for example in a painting, what the artist paints can be just a tree he saw on the way home but a person looking at it (especially when that person tries to analyse it) can see a statement of life. I don’t say its wrong but I think its interesting that people don’t seem to be aware that they are projecting so much onto the piece. I think its great and it possibly makes the work more wonderful then it is.
