Watch this video about contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang:

Notice: “Material and/or media as content is not a new idea, but an important one, as many contemporary artists continue the practice of choosing materials that best fit the idea they are trying to convey in a work of art. We see this in many ancient cultures who use specific materials for symbolic meaning, one example is the use of gold because it was considered sacred and connected to the divine. Now we will specifically look at Cai Guo Qiangis who’s artwork is often described as powerful because of the materials used to create many of his works of art. He is one of the first artist who is well known for drawing with gun powder- rather then a simple brush or pencil. There are powerful ideas that come from this video, but one quote stands out, in terms thinking about how to approach looking at art, by- Cai Guo-Qiang. He says, in his biography, that in China they have a saying- “reading a painting” / “reading a picture”. This a very healthy approach to viewing art- to hopefully understand the visual ques provided by the artist, all while keeping in mind that your response is totally legitimate and that your response to a work of art is just as important as the intended meaning. I say this because there is no way that we’ll fully understand an artist intent, in a work of art, without further investigation into the artist. Finally when you view a work of art it’s your experience and your understanding that you’ll bring to a work of art- so never underestimate your response to a work of art, even if it differs from the actual content of the work of art. The Explosive Genius: Cai Guo-Qiang.”
