    What's your art supposed to express or signify?

    All I see is Woman with green off center Hitler mustache

    Well, generally when you throw terms like fauvism and neo-expressionism, it's generally seen that you try to emulate their philosophies and such. After all, fauvism went very much against what was considered normal at that time.

    What's the point of answering a question with a question?
    Is it because the answer is "absolutely nothing"?

    Before you posted saying something like "I just wanna make a good painting" which means absolutely nothing.

    why must a painting have a narrative or meaning? Obviously, artists can make something that doesn't. I value art intrinsically not as a means to express something inherent. I am just making something somebody would like in their house. True it is obviously fauvist. But why does the painting have to mean anything past that? I say, become familiar with the princples and elements of design. Judge this work based on these elements.

    Here we go again. I've never been in one of your thread but I always enjoy watching them. Always the same. Kind of perpetual movement....

    Then why label the art as fauvism and neo-expressionism since both of those are less about that? If painting doesn't need narrative or meaning, why does it need those labels (especially since said labels go against what you seemingly want to do with this image)?

    Its in the fauvist/neoexpressionist style, but besides that i was asked what it means and i said nothing. Of course i could come up with some pretentious mumbo-jumbo to validate the painting but i am not. When I painted this I didn't have a philosophy or inclination. Its just a "pretty" painting with bright colors. Now I have alot to say on the technique but as far as meaning....NO

    Why would you assume that everyone other then you is unfamiliar with the principals and elements of design, It's likely the opposite is true.

    What principals of design have you demonstrated? What have you Designed here?..

    You know, if you aggregated all the CA critique hours this guy has wasted over the years, you'd have a nice big chunk of time that could've been devoted to someone who is capable of absorbing a clue.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    @Stoat I feel like you're right, and wrong at the same time..

    He might just be in need of more help then other people who come here.
    I know for me it's like that, I need more help then most people, harsh critique helps me realize things, but it takes a while. I think it'll take him a while too.

    In the end maybe my words won't help him but they might not have helped someone else either.

    Hi Dotcov,

    The main thing I think is that, while this is neo-expressionist in style, it is still drawing skills that are lacking. To my eyes that is the main difference between your work and the Soutine inspiration you mentioned. I think your neo-expressive work would benifit from some ordinary life drawing
