Computer please give me proof that art exists.
"Today it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying, much less without thinking. Everything about art has become problematic: its inner life, its relation to society, even its right to exist."
Theodor Adorno 1984
Theory is key. Skillfulness is a whole other can of worms. Resemblance is certainly not the be all and end all of representation.
It is hard to be sure what odalisque definition in art is anymore than asking whether it’s possible to accentuate the various design eccentricities, turning away from a negative mood to something more positive.
Doing a finger in the air calculation: Because the best art ideas are cryptic, unresolved and illegible, calm and happy pictures make more money. Good pictures are as gregarious as termites.
Maurizio Nannucci, Berlin. You have got better things to do. Gravity is a recipe for disaster.
Scientists become famous, much like artists, based on their visions.
Rich Goldn, Vine drawings are botanical symbols concealing what should be seen, or not.
There are also many mysterious ways of seeing, but in all cases the bottom line is that we see with our mind. Good art lives in the middle of nowhere.
However original the pictures depicted, realism always try overcoming imagination, the artist is his own real model. Better switching to unambitious doodling than petting the supremacy of pure aesthetics or supermodernity. Leaving out the big theories of drawing in favor of an eccentric point of view.
