"My art is my search for the moments beyond the ones of self knowledge. It is the rhythmic fantasy; a restless streak which looks for its own fulfillment! A stillness that moves within! An intense search for my origin and ultimate identity". - Meena

Art and its incredible effects on mind - An insight

Author: Meena Chopra
Art House for Kids-Art as healer has always improved the quality of life and mind giving a third dimension to the human personality in many ways. Art is a beautiful thing to be enjoyed, and knowing the powers it can have on the human mind is certainly an added bonus.

Music, dance, painting and other forms of art have shown to have an incredibly significant and positive effect on children and adults both.. 

Starry Night by Van Gogh

 

Art therapy has been used to awaken the senses of underprivileged children through both the viewing and creating of art by them.Through their artistic endeavours they subconsciously associate themselves with their past. The memories come more freely since they are not elicited by direct objects, but indirect thought instead. 



Sun Flower by Van Gogh

 

Due to many past experiences many children begin to develop nervousness, anxiety, sleeping excessive or too little, a lack of verbal, social and language skills. Many times depending on the color within a piece, or may be some other quality of the artwork, different emotions can be evoked by the observer unknowingly. Awakening of the senses through experimentation with the different types of art these children experience an untapped emotional world within themselves and with this association with their own inner being, they are able to show increased abilities in their cognitive, motor and social skills. 

Many of the most famous pieces in the Pop art movement have utilized popular advertisements that could be easily tied to past memories. Pop art is known very well for its use of bright, vibrant colors. 

Piccaso - Woman with Fan

Pop art is specifically tied to nostalgic thoughts since many of these works utilize old comics, food wrappers, advertisements and other types of art that people may recognize from past events in their lives.  Pop art is especial useful in helping evoke past memories and gain insight through the use of bright colors. Nostalgic undertones emotions and feelings surrounding past events can be easily conjured up through the study of Pop art.


According to a 2010 study conducted by researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, viewing paintings as opposed to photographs of similar objects evoked more of a sense of reward within the brain. Participants in the study were shown pieces from different artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso, and then they were showed photographs that depicted very similar objects. When they studied the brains of the participants through imaging technology, the ventrial striatum, which is part of the reward system, became more strongly activated when the participant saw a painting rather then a photograph of a similar object. Even if only momentarily, the memories they experience have shown to increase positive moods and improve their quality of life.

Pop art, for example, impacts different people in different ways. Clearly different aspects of art and the participation in the arts can have a profound and positive effect on the human mind. Most forms of art are able to impact the human mind in one way or another.With its strong ties to commercial consumerism and found art, it is easy to evoke emotion in someone when utilizing the properties of Pop art. But Pop art is not the only type of art that can be used to help stimulate areas of the brain and help in the process of resolving issues. 

Beatles
Bright yellows often evoke a feeling of happiness, which is a very common color in Pop art pieces. For example, if someone is dealing with a childhood trauma, memories from childhood can help them figure out exactly what happened and how to move past it.
Utilizing pop art to delve into past memories can be very therapeutic for many different reasons. Alzheimer's patients are often involved in music therapy, which has shown to help them recover and reconnect with past memories therefore acting as a healer and giving a positive impact to the mind towards their improvement and well being .  

What is most important is to explore the impact art has on the human mind and figure out how to positively harness the impact and minimize any negativity.

Strangers


Drawing by Meena
Oil Pastels on paper
In the day's heat
I sought myself in you.
Strangers we were, still are
silhouettes in each other's eyes.
Remnants of a deflected time.
Monotony
Nonexistence is
claustrophobic.

1 fear remaining an outline.

Your warmth lingers
uncaptured,
fading into opacity.

1 know 1 will burn
till the fire burns in me.

From "IGNITED LINES"

ओस की एक बूँद - The Dewdrop - Oas ki Ek Boond

ओस में डूबता अंतरिक्ष
विदा ले रहा है
अँधेरों पर गिरती तुषार
और कोहरों की नमी से।

और यह बूँद न जाने
कब तक जियेगी
इस लटकती टहनी से
जुड़े पत्ते के आलिंगन में।

धूल में जा गिरी तो फिर
मिट के जाएगी कहाँ?

ओस की एक बूँद
बस चुकी है कब की

मेरे व्याकुल मन में।
-© Meena Chopra (above drawing is by Meena Chopra)
- From upcoming collection 'Subeh ka Suraj ab Mera Nahin Hai'.

Oas me doobata antariksh
bida le raha hai andharon per girti tushar
aur koharon ki namee se
aur yeh boond kab tak jiyegi
is latakti tahani se jude patte ke alingan me
dhool me ja giri to phir mit ke jayegi kahan
aus ki ek boond bas chuki hai kabaki
mere wyakul man me.


(Transcreation)
The Dewdrop

The dewdrop
Submerged the universe.
departed
the misty
damp cold nights
Hugged
A fresh and short lived leaf.
Clung to the suspended branch,
A life span.

What is the chance ?
Will it last?
If it falls
on the grounded dust
in a final thrust.
Vanishing ever.

Yet it yearns,
Stilling the beats
Ceasing -
As it never did.!





- Meena Chopra

Memories of Space - शून्य की परछाईं

All the stars
engulfed in silence
trying to grab
the hands of futility.
The day explodes.
Whiteness spills
the residues of
the waning moon.
Death of the night
is still alive
in the memories of space.
- Meena Chopra


(Transcreation)
सितारों में लीन हो चुके हैं स्याह सन्नाटे
ख़लाओं को हाथों में थामें
दिन फूट पड़ा है लम्हा - लम्हा
रोशनी को अपनी
ढलती चाँदनी की चादर पर बिखराता
अंधेरों की गहरी मौत
शून्य की परछाईं में धड़कती है अब तक
जिंदा है
न जाने कब से —
न जाने कब तक
- Meena Chopra


(Above drawing by Meena Chopra)
sitaron me leen ho chuke hain syah sannate
khalaon ko haathon me thame
din phoot pada hai lamha - lamha
roshanee ko apani
dhalti chandani ki chaader per bikhrata.
andhoron ki maut
shunya ki parchhaien me
dhadakati hai ab tak
zinda hai
na jane kab se -
na jane kab tak!
(above drawing by Meena Chopra)

Dreams



Dreams
tumble from
unknown heights
into a dark pit
devoured by
the hunger for light.
