State-of-the-Arts Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of the two skilful painters - Didier Lourenco and Christian Pendelio, from Spain and France respectively. “The ‘Michelangelo effect’ ” will display the works of these two artists, examining how delicate relationships between human beings trigger different kinds of emotions and how they can sculpt both partners in becoming our ideal self. The exhibition runs from 3 to 15 Sept, 2012.

Human relationships very much depend on the connection established between individuals. Late psychologist -Caryl Rusbult, explained how devoted relationships are capable to sculpt individuals into the people that they want to be, known as the ‘Michelangelo effect’. Relationships affect our emotions and they are directly affected by what we see with the mind. Human beings learn how to meet new friends and connect with different people every day. Through various interactions, they stimulate our senses and may stir up many emotions from within, and these emotions, hidden or not, can be seen from one’s eye if you look closely.

State-of-the-Arts畫廊將為大家介紹兩位畫家 - 西班牙 Didier Lourenco法國 Christian Pendelio,並為他倆舉辦聯展《米開朗基羅效。這次展覽主題將探討人與人之間的微妙關係所引發的各種不同情緒,以及於相處過程中人們如何把自己塑造成為對方的理想伴侶。

人與人之間的關係發展取決於個人的交際技巧和兩者的心靈交流。心理學家Caryl Rusbult認為坦誠的感情關係能夠改變人的個性,將其塑造成為自己心目中理想的人,此現象被稱為米開朗基羅效應。人際關係直接影響人的情緒,而情緒則被我們腦海中所見所想左右。每一天,人類學習結交新朋友和與別人溝通的過程都刺激著情感的誕生和變化。
