    Default arteBA

    Attended a huge and very nice art show yesterday. This is my favorite although there were many excellent works on display.

    The Argentine artist is Nahuel Vecino and this piece is part of three piece presentation. Here are the other two pieces in order. I got the name of the center piece, Follaje Orfico de Long Chumps, which at the time I thought was for the entire presentation but now I am not so sure.

    They are good facial expressions, except I don't get the blank thousand yard stare of the guitar player.

    As much as I enjoy looking at Art, half or more of the time I probably miss what the Artist intended. I went to two galleries today, I will post a couple from them, totally different. I will also post a link to my gallery with several hundred images in a couple of days just to give you a better idea of what is offered in this city.

    Quit talking about it and do it.

    Thanks Dan for giving us an incite into other cultures that many of us would perhaps never see.

    Your comments with your pictures seem to bring them to life.

    Based on what I keep hearing about contemporary art, the artist's intentions aren't important. What you see is important. I don't particularly like that - if you're going to go to the effort of creating something, you have to have some intent behind it, or why bother. Otherwise, it's just a joke they're playing on us. And yes, some of them do see it as a joke.

    I don’t agree with your criticism or at least your conclusion. Art should be totally about the artist and what he/she wishes to create. If you don’t like the creation, then that is your choice but that should not limit what the artist is able to create. Trying to control the ideas of individuals is against what our country stands for and that includes artists.

    I disagree Dan all artists have an agenda to put forth a thought in ones mind about their work.

    If not why bother?

    Ummm, Dan.....for a self proclaimed logical thinker, the above statement is surprising.

    First, I saw no criticism in John's statement.

    Art is about many things I guess, and one of those things is the artist. I do not understand your leap of logic to say that John even inferred that his dislike of an art form should limit what the artist is able to create.

    And then you wave the flag?

    I agree with you that the artist(s) do have agendas but that is not what I responded to. Jonh said “the artist’s intentions aren’t important” I said “Art should be totally about the artist and what he/she wishes to create” That I offered that I often miss the artist’s intent should not be a basis for discourse unless you wish to imply that I am stupid. (After 6 FDC no objection).

    "First, I saw no criticism in John's statement.” "I don't particularly like that - if you're going to go to the effort of creating something, you have to have some intent behind it, or why bother. Otherwise, it's just a joke they're playing on us. And yes, some of them do see it as a joke.” If you don’t see any criticism in that statement, then in your eyes, I have no basis for any further discussion. "And then you wave the flag?” Is there something in my statement that you disagree with?

    Not the flag waving part but I still fail to see the criticism.... no future in further discussion I guess.

    However, I saw nothing in Johns statement that would imply that he (John) was for limiting the artist if he (John) did not like the art. This is how I read your statement.

    Oh hell, maybe we should just talk about religion or politics?

    What was obviously unclear was that art critics and professors tell us the artists' intentions don't matter. Not that artists themselves, or I, think they don't matter. And that I disagreed that the intentions don't matter. When someone says, "What does it mean to you?" I say who cares? What was the purpose of the artwork? The artist's intent either got conveyed or it didn't. I think people crave art with meaning, and that abstract "rorshach" art is profoundly disappointing and empty.

    I thought you were plenty clear.

    I am not much of an art lover but I do like to see what goes from the mind to a brush in hand at times.

    I did tour one place in Washington DC and enjoyed the hell out of it, saw many portraits of George Washington, each one different and unique as well as others.

    I ask a favor to all my friends, put your writings in bold, does it cost anything extra?

    My sight is not what it used to be, just the mashing of a button, I do not feel it is shouting it is what takes place as we all slide on the hill of life.

    PUTTING THING IN UPPER CASE IS SHOUTING

    In bold is just so that it can be read.
