Why Make Art?

Abby Jones replied:

"..As an abstract expressionist painter, I am fascinated with the basic scientific principle that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Energy changes form from potential energy to kinetic energy and back. I explore the threshold of change; when potential energy becomes kinetic energy. That energy exists in the creative process of art making as well as life. That tension that makes us hold our breaths in anticipation and the release into eventual movement is the potential and kinetic energy we encounter in everyday life. My works strive to capture these forms of energy that exist in all of us. I use multi-media including mirror, wood, metal, stained glass, and paper on top of silky oils to achieve a sense of texture and contrast that creates tension. I also use shapes, lines, and color vigorously applied to achieve a sense of movement and fluidity. I also employ transcendental meditation in my process. If the potential energy of my idea can move someone to feel an emotion then that is the kinetic energy of life derived from art. If a work can convey that sense of energy to the observer then the piece has done its job. "

Again Inside Out  by Kristina Lycke

2017-07-07 16:48

The painting has been finished in it's frame. I never bothered taking the canvas out of it, only to twist it upside down, yesterday. I dislike frames too but that's where it is and i guess it's the only part my husband likes : the frame ! At least it doesn't end up behind doors, that's where the canvas reside .... So the fact that it's franed and hanging on the wall makes it funky, he's the one ! .. [Goto..]

Fading life  by vincenzo cignozzi

2017-02-18 16:47

I try to answer to your interrogation list:

1 “The Death” is a substantive and it is usually presented as an alive skeleton with a sickle , sometime riding an horse, ( think of Durer Death and the Devil) whereas I consider it an event or a process strictly connected to life.
2 In Italian the term Life is “Vita” and is feminine and I think that it fits better to my beliefs than the neutral term ( Das Leben )
3 The main idea was something going from warm to cold colours up to the absence of colour: the black. The form should be an organic abyss.
4 The main difficulties came from the background and I do not think to have solved them entirely.
5 I work quite slowly since I do not need to spare time, so I did not count it.
6 Not entirely but near to my expectation.
7 I am never completely satisfied with my works but I am glad if I succeed to transfer at least a part of my feeling to the viewer.

Aveva tre anni. Ed era nato a Kobane, nel nord della Siria. Scappava da una guerra che ha ridotto in polvere la sua città e ucciso migliaia di suoi compagni di giochi. Aylan Kurdi. È questo il nome del bambino morto annegato nel tentativo di raggiungere l’Europa.. [Goto..]

Yes the direction of this painting is a delayed response to the intersection with them at the airport.
Visually they are very inspiring; Sir Nose, pussy cat, George . . . . . Also the exchange was stimulating “ you ain’t coming with us? “

I am sure music is in everybody’s art, it’s in our memory. You don't think so?
I am not a musician; I am a fan.

Time to rotate... haha I know that well. I suppose it's an attempt to find a new way of looking at a piece that's already become too familiar, or a way to a lead that will get you out of that seeming impasse.
At any rate, by simply looking at the rotated image I believe that it's possible to see it in it's more technical sense of composition balance, tone, colour and light, and this might point out areas where further intervention is required. Sometimes the work takes off from there and  [GoTo..]

I don't think an artists should be removed from the site .I think the artist should have images that they remove from their page as the add more . They should be showing that they have a greater understanding of their own work by removing images. They should demonstrate that they have moved beyond some of their imagers , as they grow in their art process.
The craft of the work is what makes it great . Each dialogue with the world is always personal to the artist . The viewer will come   [GOTO..]

Of course my enthusiasm for Anthroposophy is based on practical experience of Steiner's ideas and new impulses.

I studied Art and Art Therapy in the UK at a Steiner college. I also lived in a village called Forest Row, which has put many of Steiner's ideas into practice. Forest Row has quite a few initiatives, some of which are: 2 biodynamic farms, the first waldorf school in the UK called Michael Hall and Organic architecture, to name just a few...

Haha Flavius... nobody's come to this forum in the last 500 years! You risk awakening some old ghosts, like myself :o)

Yes I've heard of RS, but personally I tend to avoid any form of collective ideology, however exceptional it may be. Notwithstanding, the few followers of Steiner I've met were likeable, interesting, and smart young people. Two brilliant computer programmers I knew were Steiner advocates.

Rudolf himself probably has had many interesting things to say on Art,  [GOTO..]

The Nature and Origin of the Arts
By Rudolf Steiner, Ph.D.

Let us imagine a great snow-clad plain spread out before us and upon it here and there rivers and lakes hard frozen. The neighboring sea is mostly frozen over close to shore; further out huge floes are drifting; occasional stunted trees and bushes lift heads heavy with snow and icicles. It is evening. The sun has already set, leaving behind the golden splendor of its  [GOTO..]
