Joan Miró La Pierre Philosophale (The Philosopher’s Stone), 1975 creates a pictorial space where imaginative elements come together to give way for the best possible artistic experience. Upon first glance, you are hit with its sheer size. One of Miró’s largest works, the impact of this work’s dimensions show the magnitude of this master’s skillset. Miró brings forth a perfect combination of his usage of everyday symbols, automatic drawing, and lyrical poeticism. In this particular piece, you can see the freedom of his expressions brought to life. Brightly saturated colors conquer your visual field simultaneously as the large forms and figures break up the surface. There are two eyes jutting outwards, staring at the beholder. Each eye is defined by thick black lines creating a strong sense of presence. Both geometric and irregular, Miró’s arrangement of shapes and symbols emerge and leap outwards towards the viewer. Immediately having the effect of grasping your attention, you cannot move away from the work. You are paralyzed by the enigmatic and bold spirit of this beautiful work of art. Pulling you closer, Joan Miró displays his abilities as a master artist to further intrigue your senses in every possible way.
