    Roy Lichtenstein's work is pomo, it's supposed to be banal.
  2. There are six billion people in the world. That's...

    There are six billion people in the world. That's the talent pool. Some will be screwy enough to be artists. Of those, a miniscule percentage will be talent outliers. Sorta like being jealous of...

    Armando,

    Nobody wants to spend all day spelling this stuff out to you while you sit there with your arms folded. Who do you think you are?

    You set up yourself as an arbiter of what proves the...

    Yeah, it was somewhat explained in the reading. And my guess is, also, you haven't had any experience in these matters, otherwise you'd at least know the various possibilities. Lots of auctions and...
  5. I have extensive experience about this topic in...

    I have extensive experience about this topic in New York schools, from state schools, to community colleges, to Ivy League institutions, to the hundreds of artists I have met who were trained in such...

    The fraud is very easy to understand, and it is institutional as well as personal.

    The institution makes money by having students paying more to enroll than the teachers are paid to teach or the...

    Splatter paint on canvas is abstract expressionist, which is still considered modernist, not postmodernist.



    The issue is, one, where most young artists train. And that's in accredited...

    A lot of "eh, not so much" suddenly spilling out.

    The modernist purge was nasty and still is nasty. The same shellacking that abstractionists were giving any "realist" in my mother's day (she was...

    Carlos, that is a nice start. That shows you aren't just fooling around.

    So, I would suggest beginning on your journey from here with anatomy and gesture. Get into some life drawing sessions,...

    Ruanjiajia is a one-in-a-million badass. He's probably been going full guns since he was a kid, just like everybody who gets really good. Since you have no link to any of your work, it is impossible...

    Well, let's not forget that Loomis made the effort to put all that generic art instruction for making generic art into book form so it was preserved. Otherwise, it probably would have been lost...

    Write the ending. Draw the ending. Finish the ending.

    Figure out how to get to the ending from what you already have.

    Map out the scenes that get you to the ending.

    If there are scenes...

    Yes, it is in Niccolaides, but most people don't know him. And straight versus curved is a very small part of Niccolaides, while it is practically the entire thesis of Mattesi's book, what he thinks...
  14. The straight versus curved thing comes, I...

    The straight versus curved thing comes, I believe, from Matt Mattesi's "Force" books, which are not gospel. There is no necessary principle of art that demands that curves be set against straight...

    There is this idea of form... the plastic quality of a medium. Each medium has its array of form qualities which can be manipulated. Visual art has a host of such graphic qualities which can be...

    Good to see you drawing.



    Your understanding is coming along. But remember that not drawing a line is also a key part of drawing. And what it means to not draw a line is to make a decision to...

    Well, Brangywn and the orientalists were lambasted for romanticizing and/or exploiting the people and customs of countries that were colonized by the west. "Beautiful tales of exotic foreign lands"...

    Agreed, of course. But other factors, already mentioned, play into it (the question of the thread). Namely, that most businesses and trades are male-dominated, therefore men will have disposable...

    Well, yes, that's mostly true. But women also generally weren't a big part of building things and mass transport of goods in bulk. Generally, building is back-breaking work and men seem to have done...

    There is a reality which we share in, which is not built of words, ideas, or concepts. From this reality, we extract information in order to survive. If the information we extract is true, and we act...

    nomansland,

    My model is Howard Pyle on this. He taught the art of illustration between 1894 and 1910 in a time before Women's rights, when the basic expectation, and usual occurrence, was women...

    LL,

    Huh? What? You have to be aware of all the bio structures which have stayed constant, and look at them in context of what was different. Out of that, conclusions may be inferred.

    Simple,...

    Hi LadyInferno,

    Welcome.

    Since you are new to this forum, you wouldn't know this. But the general unspoken rule at this site is that what is most important for artists starting out is to...
