Conceptual art on conceptual art

April 25, 2019

This is a conceptual art piece that challenges conceptual art pieces! There is a blank piece of paper and a poem underneath that reads:

Tom Friedman made an art piece
“1,000 Hours of Staring”
(at a piece of white paper
touched only by the artist’s gaze.)
I could do the same masterpiece
in 46 minutes and 13 seconds.
Can you tell the difference?

The Painter as Modern Sculpture

Work Smarter, Not Harder

January 9, 2018

Work smarter, not work harder, says the motto.

My response, yes. Too often people advise others that hard work is enough. But that does not always work.

Here is an example: you go to a bank and ask for free money. They say no. Not working hard enough! You have to try one hundred, or one thousands banks!

This is a problem I see in all the arts. Musicians, writers, filmmakers, artists, etc., all not seeing that how much you work won’t change a system that has become unfair to so many.

Corporations, through media consolidation, have the upper hand in all these industries, and they push profit over quality. Work hard, and work smart. Rebel against the system or you are just asking banks for free money.

Many seem to settle for all the arts to be ruined because of business demands for profit. And they allow their favorite musicians, writers, artists, filmmakers to be marginalized out of fair reviews and careers. For some reason, too many now think that if THEY can search out and find an elusive great talent, that is enough. It is not.

Virtually every talented musician, painter, writer, filmmaker, etc that you have to search for, is making minimum wage. Great talent should be the most celebrated, not the most marginalized.

The history of art has never been like this before. The best art has always been the most talked about, written about, and reviewed. The entire art world is upside down. That is why the art revolution to change it.

Has Art Left the Galleries?

August 10, 2017

Dear Reader,

The best of the art world is not confined to galleries or museums. More and more the best artists are not in either!

When looking for the most exciting and progressive art – not a rehash of last century art – please look to these artists:

1. Illustrators
2. Fashion designers
3. Video game artists
4. Animated film artists
5. Comic and graphic novel artists.
6. Graffiti artists.
7. Primitive artists.
8. Online artists.
