Art Work by Blind Authors
Art work by blind authors demonstrates creative grasp of blind people in the area of art, the proportion of their strength and creative imagination, and at the same time eliminates prejudice towards blind people and their ability to express themselves in art.
The ability of the presented authors to grasp the integrity arising on the way from idea to hands and works of art shall, we believe, encourage both sighted and blind people to have a try in that field as well. The presented sculptures provide the visitors an insight into the art values and characteristics of every author’s style. The skill of handling the material and the manner of interpreting contents and shape which these blind authors draw from their memory, or which they have conceived by touch and impressed into their sculptures is impressive, and even outside that context their works have undeniable artistic value. The language of sculpture of these authors talks about the importance of hands, freedom and passion of creating and thinking, the joy of addressing the material (clay, wood) and the world around them. Their work should be approached to and enjoyed in as work of art, not only a miraculous expression of skill.
