Introducing a painter's opinion into the discussion about visual perception and painting
Keywords:self-awareness, perception, vision, phenomenology, realist painting
The artistic vision and artistic painting have been a topic of numerous discussions in phenomenology and neurosciences. I will try to introduce the painter´s opinion, which I have gained through practice, into the discussion. I’ll be aiming at: distinguishing the painting experience from the painting observation experience; distinguishing vision from cognition; and the manifestation of the visible on the canvas. I also propose the possibility of gaining a dignifying awareness of the self and of the perception through the painting, for both the painter and the observer.
