BEAUTY: HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF? (PABLO PICASSO)


"Beauty?... To me its a word without sense because I do not know where its meaning comes from nor where it leads to." 
-Pablo Picasso 

Did you ever think about the face you see in the mirror every morning? 
Most of us do not give our reflection much thought, but the reality is, what you see is largely influenced by what you value in your thoughts, experiences, and moods. 
What you may love or hate about yourself is completely effected and filtered into an illusion of what you see.

"Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs."
-Pablo Picasso

Master painter, Pablo Picasso has painted a vast collection of self portraits throughout his lifetime and they teach us how dramatically perceptions of self can alter through age and experiences.
When we are younger, we are largely influenced by the standard conventions of beauty, and the shell that contains us. 
However, through life, hardships, heartbreak, failures, and knowledge, what we see in ourselves will evolve into more complex forms.

Beauty is not what you see, but what you feel.

  1. This post is beautifully written and really made me think. I hadn't seen the black and white self portrait by Picasso before - it's so striking.
