A few weeks ago, they requested me to write an article about the work of Hopper, the Nighthawks and I, being a good researcher, went to inform me. Because https://notes.io/DyNz is known or at the very least, taught by experience, to understand a painting, one must know its history as well as the artist and, most importantly, the setting in the which it was painted. Art is definitely an universal thing, that transcends both space and time and therefore is recognizable in the midst of hundreds of years. The meanings alter, as does the way the world and society change, and what previously could be clearly seen, perhaps decades after, is not so obvious. What was never considered prior to is now revealing http://ttytcammy.vn/Default.aspx?tabid=120&ch=95148 to us in a different manner.Re-defining a work over timeThis is a bit like what I imagine happens when you view the work of Hopper's " Nighthawks" which was closed by the bar at night, in that window, which resembles the inside of a fish tank, in the position of characters that are observed.I believe that in this work, Hopper was trying to open up space to the viewer, allowing him to observe the silent serene, well-detailed and peaceful scene that we are presented by the night.This particular space, created for an active audience, is perhaps the keystone, which allows the painting to change in the course of time, and to remain timeless, indestructible and even contemporary.The piece, which was created in 1942, cannot be immediately linked to a specific historical moment however it appears that its date can be altered with the change of the viewer, depending on the time in which the piece is seen.<img width="331" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-cVM6oyxFSG8/TWW5HyjkZjI/AAAAAAAAAmk/4pDNIxE6rP8/s1600/IMG_1109.jpg">In my opinion this is the key to reading, the space dedicated by the observer that Hopper desired to create.I'll explain.Researching information and news on Hopper's " Nighthawks", I was able to see how people describe the film by highlighting these aspects:"[...] the loneliness, the sense of being empty in a world whose shimmering patina starts to lose its luster. [...] The uniquely commercial essence of the myths is that they peel off their masks and show a displaced reality, without valid points of reference in the face of uncertainty and a lack of morality. "Night and transformationI am of the opinion that this interpretation is not complete and, therefore, it is an interpretation given by the social context as well as by the dating attributed to the work: the United States between the 40s and 50s, in the boom in economics which redefined the social and cultural assets in the lives of individuals, a society that is even a little bourgeois, where nightclubs are viewed as places of loneliness or despair.This is somewhat true and it's not the whole truth.First time that I saw the painting without having studied it, it brought me a lot of peace and joy, thanks to its bright contrast and its quiet nocturnal quality.Perhaps, as a resident of a large busy and noisy city, night is one of the moments when I can experience the city more calmly: fewer people around more cars, less noise, more space between the streets to choose, and the best place to be, beneath the starless urban sky. The night has a very different meaning to me than those who frequented bars in The United States during the 40s: when the sun goes down, the city transforms its appearance, and the streets become more free and easy.We cannot ignore how society has transformed itself in more than half a century of cultural and social changes, in between Pop as well as Rock culture, between the psychedelic movement in the 1990s and 2000s.Personally, as a child in the 90s, I was also a night-time kid and by that I am referring to everything "formative" experiences that the night provided me with. For me it is always common to be out at night and walk through the streets, and on weekends, searching for the best nightclub, dancing till dawn while riding a motorbike, or driving around in search of the last bar that is open you can grab a hot pizza or croissant or hot pizza, and then where to sip the last glass and light the last puff before dawn arrived. Perhaps from the 80s to the present, nightlife stopped frightening those who stayed at the house (let's keep in mind the jazz movement, anti-prohibitionism and even the notorious Cursed Poets, all perfect night owls) and it became the place where many of the prominent personalities of the world find comfort and peace of other night hawks.Hopper's contemporary realismThe painting of Hopper today reminds me of many scenes of real day life. It makes me almost proud and in any case sympathize with the last three characters, who exchange a chat while the bartender cleans the bar to close the bar and begin a new. People who are nocturnal seek peace in the solitude of their nocturnal companions, meditate on their lives observing their surroundings through a glass, and form a group of the night, accepting all and not judging anyone. It is no coincidence that in the oldest ancestral civilizations such as the Indian one the time between midnight and dawn is known as Brahmamuhurta or the time of Brahma the most ideal moment to commit oneself to prayer, meditation as well as study and reflection. This is the time of day when the energy is more intense and intense, but they are of tranquil, spiritual intensity.There is no solitude nor empty space in Hopper's painting. I saw more of it in the gentrified streets of the night quarters. This is because even the right-thinking folks started drinking in the evening.That's why even the most popular and historic neighborhoods had to be transformed into showcases for the consumer as the spontaneous gatherings of people in the square were required to arrange themselves in line, waiting for their turn; and the music of the drums that played on the other side of the street was slowed by police sirens. This is what worries me today that nighttime is shattered by its sacred , timeless atmosphere, by its being a moment of aggregation for individuals, and by becoming another uncover productive gear of the system, demanding clarity and respectability even in the most secluded corners within the cities.
