|Page: Art Appreciation - Beauty, Nature and Life Appreciated through Sinhalese Art|
Through artistic impressions, we experience the joy of visual beauty, which may endure all time and ages. Like many of the world's greatest art works, still admired to this day. Beauty and the appreciation of it, speaks to our higher conscience through the language of art and music. The heart and soul can be stirred within, when we listen to a beautiful melody or contemplate a piece of art, which impresses our human mind.
When developing a design, I take in a subject matter with appreciation of its own value and inspirational appeal. The world around us offers a continuous bounty of subject matters to glorify in art. I have come to admire the deep seated love of nature and of life, that is so intimately connected with Sinhalese art tradition.

A single flower, leaf or feather can become revered in a skillful pattern or motif, and create a lasting impression. The symbolic meanings behind many of Lotus Sunrise designs elucidate a subject matter's intrinsic beauty and idealism. In this way, everyday worldly things are uplifted through artistic expressions and genuine interests in their details.
A simple motif can stand for much more than just the object that it is. It can offer a deep and meaningful impression, such as legends or myths that a subject matter may be associated with. Through this we can acquire a profound mindfulness, when appreciating an artistic representation of a subject matter.
For example, a design of a sun motif may offer the spirit of light and warmth, new life and the ripening of the earth's fruits. The sun is also said to embody male energy, and so the sun is inevitably the ultimate power symbolized in kings, worldwide.
Even when we pause to look at ancient art, we can usually find so much symbolism and a reverence for the subject matter the artist and his/her culture held in the object or idea, surviving to this very day.
