    I dont know why you guys take me so seriously, dont you understand what i'm doing?

    I'm taking an opinion I have and then writing about it in rapidly exaggerated proportions.

    Lets say we watch a movie, I dont like the movie, So i say to you "this is the worst movie ever, so I'm going to fill my car up with snakes, tarantulas and funnel web spiders, then I'm going to fill my pants with dynamite, cover myself in petrol, get in the car and drive as fast as i can towards a brick wall, put the plastic bag over my head before hitting the brick wall and then die in a massive explosion, bitten by poisonous snakes, taranchulas, flamed by petrol blowen up by dynamite, suffocated by a plastic bag and mangled from the car accident.

    I'm not really going to do that, I'd just be trying to tell you i dislike the movie.

    you know what i mean?



    For example I'm not actually capable of banning all films that have 3 explosions or less, I'm just telling you in my own way that i like movies with explosions.

    I do it because I have some strange Attentive compulsion to wind you up and it works, usually i get myself into more trouble than its worth...


    anyway, I've changed all my opinions since when i first wrote this thread, and I've decided I want a bed spread with the works of William De Koonig.

    This could be where all those American Indians ended up who didn't hear about Jesus for 1,492 years!

    Aristotle and Socrates must have been rather perplexed. . .

    i cant tell whether your joking or not, watch yourself idiot, there's kids on here that dont need to feel marginalized.

    Try using your head, theres kids on here from Israel just trying to learn about art that don't need to be exposed to that on this website.

    I have a friend who does abstract art, knowing full well what she does is shit. She told me, while we were doing anatomical studies, that she dunked a bunch of marbles into paint and rolled them over her canvas. She got $150 for it. Not only could she believe someone actually wanted that piece of garbage, she was surprised when they paid $150 for it. I mean how wrong is that? To do a piece of art work and know it's shit before you're even finished doing it?

    nothing, abstract art has its places. art which has form and perspective rarely looks good on surfaces that are not flat, such as fabrics, abstract patterns and the like look quite good on curtains, but a rembrandt print curtain would look quite strange.


    My problem is that the traditional skills are being neglected; technical drawing has been pushed aside for CAD programs, figure drawing has been completely shunted because its easier and quicker to train artists in abstract disciplines, the art of vehicle illustration has been pushed away because people think they can get the same or better results on a 3d computer program.

    The truth is that computer programs will not suffice and cannot replace the skills that drafting brings. Is this the end of invention and innovation because the populace will no longer be able to conceptualize their ideas with ease?

    I'm trying to talk about an attitude that is destroying society, its the attitude of people who say they "simply dont have it" , sure it'll take a good 5 to 7 years to train someone to be able to draw effectively; in perspective with anatomical precision, but thats the same time it takes to train a doctor, accountant, dentist or a lawyer and the ability to conceptualize and illustrate in 3-dimensions is just as usefull but the emphasis and training is minimal by comparison.

    Just look at how many people out there dog the art scene because of the prevelance of abstractism and we suffer because of it.

    That you can't get a loan to study exactly what you want in a college environment should not stop you.

    There is more to non-figurative work than than just expensive useless stuff, just look at graphic design and typography (for a start). That are topics that can be useful for your figurative work (for your texture work and also in a more abstract way), as well as for your life in general as books and websites allow for a lot learning to happen to you without being bound to a school or college with teacher type individuals to feed you everything.
    oh god jeremy geddes! he had a small exhibition in hong kong last month, along with ashley wood. was super awesome.
