I examine the art piece for specific elements significant to a particular artist – brush stroke, clor, manner and favorite shapes.

Kubicki, an assistant in the Microsystems Technology Laboratories, also said: art is mirroring our life, art is exercising our freedom and art is implementing our intellect. (See article below from Artdaily.org).
Yes, art is democracy at its deepest level. The artist Ellsworth Kelly said:
I like my own freedom to do what I want without anyone telling me what to do. I feel we all want our space. My work has that feeling of really wanting its own space. My paintings are about freedom.
That freedom includes art for everyone – in the truest sense of the word – the sharing of our common visual perceptual processes, the eyes and the brain.
