All awkward paintings at least once had to reveal their experience of being a “single work of art”. Millions have this creepy problem.
Relevance is showing me the zany approaches to art I dreamt last night. Interactions between pictures involve a complex web of shared interests and intense conflict. Artistic images are terrorized by anything remotely numerical.
Word as image where the quotidian and other-worldly converge. This drawing playfully oscillates between two and three dimensional space.
People like 老东西 who can see new connections between seemingly utterly different human endeavors, they are the new explorers of mysteriously unclear images easily accessible to the general public.
Dada arrived as pure rebellion against logic and common sense. Art sites are a form of self-expression. Alternative artworks like to personalize things.
Dry humor of theorism never lost an opportunity to make a splash. The theoretical rigor of artsy-metry's work completely replaced the ferociously arty methods that had previously prevailed.
Cats bridge contemporary art and alternative zany life.
Life is an enigma. Gravity is my favorite form creator.
Life is difficult, art is full of secret windows and fanciful art for everyone.
Life always has been difficult, artists work with what they have at hand and try to use everything at their disposal in achieving their goals. Embark on an inspirational artistic journey of awe-filled art web pages, mind-expanding pictures, and memorable but silly aphorisms ("the cutting edge art markets are dangerous place to live").
Alternative arts widen the gap between what is shown and what artworks meant; deadly serious art works to close this gap. Awkward artworks exploring themes in art that cross cultural boundaries from the soft imagery to hard-nose science. An awkwardly jokey methodology, of course, but no one really cares.
It is at the interfaces of disciplines and professions, between the orthodox and neatly partitioned branches of science and technology, that treasure troves of awkward artistic knowledge remain hidden. I'm not being harum-scarum, I'm just pointing out a reality.
The difference between neo-naturalism and realism is a myth. Success really does breed success and awkward aphorisms.
Art is important because it mean to represent an imagination that always strives above the mundane.
"My work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance".
Usually weird questions are very insightful, however head-scratching. Stupid mistakes and jokey art can happen to any artist, you couldn't explain it, it was instinctual.
The statue is then beautiful when it begins to be incomprehensible. Artworks escape us through the mysteries they hold.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life in the Internet age has undoubtedly helped a certain ironic sensibility to flourish as a painting in itself, beyond the bare minimalism, between a still and a moving image. That is surely black and white, no gray area there.
Flamingoes being at once surreal and abstract, inviting and alarming. Pick your choice.
'Innocent error' vs 'honest mistake'. If you understand the painting easily, the painting is not poetic.
'Honest mistake' vs 'innocent error'. If it gets complicated it isn’t going to work. Ultimately, we're trying to get at biological truths.
Strange and significant secrets are good stories to tell.
Be consistent: Once you start, don't stop.
