What is Fantasy
Fantasy Art is the art of
the fantastic where dreams and fantasy are brought creatively out
into the real world. Fantasy art has been around a long time and
there were fantasy artists in book illustration as well as
fantasy painters long ago. Modern fantasy artists may use
advanced techniques but the fantasy and imagination are the same.
Today's fantasy artists explore the magic that is missing from
today's technological world. Dragons, angels, faeries, wizards,
demons and ghouls amongst others inhabit the realms of fantasy.
Science has yet to explain fantasy and imagination so the art
that springs from fantasy is a marvel beyond modern science.
Imagination was the
development in humanity that took us beyond the state of being
just animals. Without imagining a possibility there can be no
search and no discovery so all science is founded on the ability
to imagine how things might be long before the theories and proof
are developed. Fantasy art is the glory of that human imagination
that is at the root of what we are and taps into the great
mystery of life itself. Fantasy art gives expression to things
that are still beyond the knowledge of modern science. Just like
music and other creative expressions fantasy art contacts that
pure creativity within all of us and in some mysterious way
enriches our lives. Long may the fantasy and the art prevail!
