Matchsticks in an Extraordinary Way


Everybody thinks differently. Different people can interpret the same sight. In this article , I am presenting an ordinary thing, few matchsticks ,in an extraordinary way ,some burnt while some not, some arranged in pattern while some scattered to depict a story.

Art helps us see and helps us see ordinary beauty. Art doesn’t force people to follow rules;moreover it encourages new inventiveness every time.

“Do small things very well before attempting huge endeavours, as the old adage goes.” words by Hill , an American novelist. According to photographer Robert Frank, “often a commonplace subject stored next to you on your table, in your pocket, on your kitchen shelf, or anywhere around you might help you make some wonderful photographs.” Hence, in this article, I used an ordinary thing, matchsticks in an extraordinary way. Particularly, there are two ways to use a tiny piece of wood are to burn it or use it raw. Unlike ornamental or applied art, which must serve a functional purpose, such as is the case with pottery or the majority of metals, fine art is created primarily for aesthetics or creative expression.
