please let me know ??
for me art has no rules... that is the latest art thing that I have found as true.
so, if for you art has no rules, how about defying art from your point of view for a start
No I think art has rules - or at least guidelines - alright, and that's what separates good art from bad art. But you need to know the rules before you break them.
To me one of the most important things about art is that the journey never ends. We will always be students and we will always need to keep learning to be able to consider ourselves artists. Just before his death at the age of 92, Picasso remarked that only then was he beginning to understand what this is all about. That's the man who almost single handedly changed the way we view art.
"no rules just tools"? is that what you mean?Originally Posted by Brendan N

What I mean is there are rules (or, more correctly, guidelines) which you must learn and once you've done that, you can (if you want to) start bending and breaking those "rules" in effective ways. Well that's my opinion in any case. Hope that answers your question dude .Originally Posted by Zaknafain
Judging from some of the replies so far, this topic could spin off in any number of directions, but I'll try to stay true to the original question.....
In my opinion, the most important thing about art is that it evokes some sort of feeling or emotion, one way or the other. Surely art without feeling is the biggest waste. When I go to a gallery, or even browse online galleries, I want to feel something.

the most important thing about art, is the one viewing it.

"Art is supposed to punch you in the brain, and it's supposed to stay punched."
other than perfecting my personal disciplines and working on managing my errors that I make in the creation of the idea of beauty, which is fun in and of itself(to challenge one-self to create) is the ever present form that I try to represent in the given thought ... and it's representation
in ten less words ---
describing the moment with form creations
these are created by my mind is best when my mind blanks out of existence for lack of better words...
It's an outlet for expression.
"Work for your self first. You can paint best the things you like or the things you hate. You cannot paint well when indifferent.
Express a mental opinion about something you are sensitive to in life around you. There is a profound difference between sensitivity and sentimentality."

It's my way to "feel/know" that I am connected to the greater whole. These days I am working with the community, with school kids, to help place paid artists/art teachers in the local elementary schools.
This feels like the most important thing I can do to help create the future.

i have to agree with both of you (brendan and sve). there's enough misdirection and misinformation out there as it is. art that hides its very soul just makes it harder for the viewer imo. ON THE OTHER HAND, on many an occasion though i'v found myself drawn to a paticular song or story not so much for the meaning the band or author was tryin to convey but because of the interpretation that I've derived, whether or not it was the ORIGINAL intention.Originally Posted by Brendan N
talk about circles in my head .... its time to recharge .... . later
edit: the most important thing about art is .... the journey ....
the sole intention is learning to fly
the most important thing about art??.... is that it exists. - JAG

Just one rule...
Never go to dinner with Art...

The fun-factor is most important to me. I wouldn't even do art if it was boring.
