This pointless circle of a nothing
Wall before wall, wall before wall, wall behind wall, passage in the room, room in the room, passage in the room, wall before wall, blue paper areas on the wall, room in the room, room in the room, red stone behind the room, lead in the floor, light around the room, wall before wall, shape in the wall, cube in the wall, black stone in the wall, moveable ceiling below the ceiling, passage in the room, wall before wall..(Sneider,1994, p15)
Not directly engaging with an art work, whereby I mean not just reading the statement, looking at the work and deciding its good or bad, is a fundamental problem with art students. If we do not ENGAGE: critcally analyze every single tiny detail of what an artist is/ isn’t showing us then we are wasting our pathetic little ignorance on something they have created. Art is innovation. If an artist is not striving for innovation in their practice and field and that is recognised by critique then so be it and the art work has failed. Engagement is absolutely cardinal. Failing to do this is a really probing worriment
As much as I love looking at pictures of someones copy cat artisitc endevours one would appreciate an attempt at innovation. If not solely for the entertainment factor for me, perhaps theres the off chance it might facilitate their own practice.
As seriously as one can take a blogging website used by visual artists as a means of exposing their work to a wider audience, I have tried and failed to not laugh at every tagged word used to deliniate their work. #bollox.
