Thanks Juan, i was at the no name show last night. looked nice.. very good line up though really, i find art these days rather .. dull , especially in ottawa, i guess thats part of why you make art, you make what you want to see, thats how i feel about it anyway.. ill come check out what your working on, thanks so much for having me love
Hey...I know what you mean, but it's not just these days. I've seen few fantastic pieces of late and I think it's because artists aren't prepared to take chances. I was talking to some one from london that told me that all the art that's coming out of there now is all created with commerce in mind. No one allows for their work to mature enough before they're making product to sell. I feel sad because I know I'm guilty.
I'm interested in creating gigs with artists like you, that take chances and cut new ground...that way, other artists in the group will be exposed to art that is NOT dull and will undoubtedly offer artists a push to create beyond their abilities. I've always thought that the computer has made a negative impact on art. Perhaps time is telling the impact of a format that suffocates creativity.
I really admire when art can be done using control (like the beautiful linework on the face) and yet have a motion to them, a quickness of line, or solid shape, anything to make them sketchier and full of character. I get inspired when people can combine the two so beautifully, and you are one of them. I also love the non-toxic materials... thank you!
