That quote really opens my eyes.Makes me realize that art is so subjective.Art is
the raw emotions, dreams and imaginings of the artist and as viewers of the art we do not always necessarily see or feel what the artist felt at the moment the art was created. I think each person who views art will see it differently because of their own particular emotions or dreams. Of course on any given day those emotions can
be different, so each time we view art it can change for us. Which is why I always get really upset when I read a review of an artist's work by an art critic! How can one person look at a body of work and give us a valid and reasonable opinion, when art is SUBJECTIVE. How does that critic 'know' what the artist meant or felt when the artist created it?(Unless of course the critic interviewed the artist.)Also, when the artist created the art he/she may not have had any idea in mind and just let things flow intuitively with no rhyme or reason for it. Does that make any sense?
Sorry to be so DEEP today. Feeling rather introspective.
My week alone (daughter went back to college, hubby on business trip) did not go quite as planned.But then does anything ever go as planned? I developed a rather nasty sinus infection which has made my brain foggier than normal and a bit light- headed to go with it. So all the art I had planned did NOT get done. I did however
finally get my abstracts posted that I finished before daughter came home for spring
break.Also, finally got around to photographing some daily tag art.
I am VERY behind in uploading them.
There is still a stack in my studio waiting to have fibers/ribbon added and then photographed.
Hopefully I will finish getting all the old ones posted in the next few days.
Even though I didn't do ALL the art I had planned last week. I DID however, create a new painting which I will post tomorrow and I have started YET another project--
mixed media on fabric which I will photograph in stages since it's basically an experiment.
My crazy quilt from a previous posting is sitting patiently by the sewing machine awaiting it's borders and backing. I used some Shiva Oil Sticks and texture plates to create a design on some fabric that I want to use as the borders. Waiting for that to 'cure' before heat setting and sewing. Will post that when it's done.
