The Origin Of Art

Peacock

I have also been telling people when they ask me when did I know I was going to be an artist – that I have felt that I was called to do what I do, that I have tried to give it up, move onto something else but always come back to making and creating art.

Words versus Images in Art

 Is reality nothing more than a narrative? A visual and or linguistic construction that can be controlled and that controls what we say and how we think?  I reality nothing more than words and images?  If reality is nothing more than a visual or linguistic construction than reality is a figment of what we imagine,

Is Art Like Life?

If art is life does it imitate life? Just the word imitate causes a problem for me. Without going into huge detail I will just say no imitation – if it is art it is a thing in itself.

Is competition bad for art?

I have to agree by putting yourself out there it pushes you to think and look beyond your comfort zone. Yes it is subjective – but because all my recent work tries to have a conceptual element to it I am able to speak to those subjectivists – and it challenges me to be able to stay on the play ground and not have sand thrown in my face. So I go for it – it is my voice.

Freedom – the no hands approach to making art

Remember when you could ride your bike and it was your vehicle to freedom, your means to get away and journey to places that only you, well you thought only you, knew about? Remember the joy and the fear of starting at the top of a hill, and gliding down going faster than you could

Kandinsky and Rhythm

The mind is conceptual, it is a consciousness which integrates with philosophical values, like ethics, and freedom and choice. To inject rhythm into his work, like a musical score was to inject as Kandinsky stated his inner world and the conceptual conscious choice to integrate it with reality and to integrate it with his own happiness.

How to Be an Artist, According to Wassily Kandinsky

At the time that Kandinsky painted, his ideas created change in how one thinks about art. His works and ideas were revolutionary. But now because his thoughts have become common place, and abstract works are indeed “non-representational” and indeed do not represent even simple forms

The Individual Artist and the Collective Concept of Freedom

Artists have the power to change, creatively not forcefully, what is there into something beautiful. The self of the artist is not the self of the viewer or another artist, but linking this power to self and the notion of freedom there is then a collective creative concept of freedom that is a beautiful idea.
