    Fauvist Hag

    This is a fauvist/neoexpressionist painting in the vain of chaim soutine. He was my inspiration

    What's your art supposed to express or signify?

    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).
