Description of the artwork «Cognition»

Experience is a personal thing. Even when learning from something else, we can not replace their ones with our own experience.
Cognition makes us change the point of view on things we did not know about before.
Change of the world begins with Cognition. We can not change anything without understanding how it works.
Cognition does not always make us happy with the facts, but cognition can be an adventure.
Again - to convey what we know, as our personal experience, to someone else fully is unlikely, people should look themselves for many answers on certain things.
The effort to teach someone something is impossible without the will to this from the very host.
Cognition is an ability and requires a work, not necessarily and not always being a pleasure.
Cognition is often a necessity. We can not progress, remaining at the same level of cognition, therefore cognition is an exchange. For cognition, the external world is necessary, since to cognize only one's inner is to be isolated from the world.
And although someone could equate cognition and meditation, however, meditation requires solitude, and cognition requires the presence of the external world.
The question is, what exactly do we want to cognize.

The painting has a heavy paint texture on the surface (a raised surface).
