Creating art works not just activity copying the reality of what happened in real life, but it is the effort of artists to bring something that is in the soul, to work not only activities play a paint and brush on a two-dimensional plane, but the artists are required provide a sense which will then bring meaning in his work and can provide an aesthetic experience for each audience.
Many things are an inspiration to present a paper. Such as, the relationship between man and God, man to man and man's relationship to other creatures. Or fully human as living beings. I am interested in the things that happen in everyday life, simply as a photographer to capture the things he considered important to create an image, a person who likes to write by writing and he will be happy, and I am as a person who is in the world of art then My way to record any incidents in everyday life is to move it to the media, such as canvas, paper, etc. Then it will be a work of art that then I offer to the audience, the work is born of experience in life, in a way that will make me happy.
From every experience record events, eloquently able to remember the past of the whole event, combining back all forms of thought and action every day. Memories are recorded in the circuit as represented in the sequence of events. As the range of experiences to determine the meaning of the event or events in the practice of everyday life. Works made not only what is happening at the moment in which the work was created, but also by way of flashback to the past. I'm trying to capture the experience of not only my personal experience but can be associated with significant others, or anyone who is around. Among the lessons that can stimulate my brain in the birth of the work including the following, when people feel sad, angry, desperate, then from the negative emotions that I try to turn it into something positive with the end result is to get the spirit of each event.
Humans live in the world is essential to gain happiness, but happiness is not necessarily obtained easily, there are times when it first passed the sadness, anger, fear, loss, etc. All the feelings of grief in the form of so-called melancholia (Melancholia). I use the term melancholia that is not according to the actual meaning but just as words symbolizing human feelings when it fell in.
When men in a state of melancholia ideally to direct these towards the positive emotions, emotions that usually will bring a sense of despair, laziness, hate then we have the option to direct it in a positive direction. When a man is in a state that is difficult and depressing it will find a place as an outlet and will emerge creative ideas, Simon Cox (2010: 206) in his book: This is the picture of someone who is waiting for the spark of inspiration to fight state dusky, and of the genius unfettered who dwells in a world of deep melancholy, but it has the usual extensive creativity and spark of intelligence when needed.
From feelings of sadness and anger was controlled, which would certainly be a positive thing that will help us get the desired. In the cult of the everyday life, of course, we are surrounded by a wide variety of individuals, with varying emotions anyway, so besides being able to control the emotions that come from within, should also able to control the emotions that come from outside or other people. And all this suffering comes from within ourselves, blaming circumstances it will bring greater sorrow, man is expected to be able to interpret and learn from the pain that comes and then try to beat all the challenges. Grief is a natural thing, to answer any concerns that man as an individual comes first look 'into', many people think happiness is only associated with the material, but also ruled out the inner satisfaction. To balance it is sometimes necessary brooding 'silence' to explore ourselves, to know what we really want, from here also we can find happiness as what to look for. Melancholia: Sound of Darkness is an appropriate title for this proposal, melancholia or in English Melancholia is a time when humans feel fall, sad, dark, desperate, the voice from the darkness, is a parable of a spirit that comes out of the problem, a solution present as a solution. When problems come when it is no difference between reality and desire, then there will be a feeling of sadness and disappointment. However, excessive emphasis on the dumps would be bad, will cause new problems, with a little spirit that humans need, is expected to rise from the dark, could use sadness as the beginning of happiness.
