  • Re: What is original art

    Hi Starrpoint, If i may, there is so much more... Art or not, original or not, copy or not, student or not, artist or not, amateur or not. All tend to matter greatly as we all wish to be understood. Just suppose God is the original artist and his creations are the only original art. This would make everything...

    Your teacher is doing her job, and doing it well. It is so nice to see a teacher really working to bring along other artists, and not simply copyist. She is so correct! I work with an artist co-op that holds several open entry shows a year (ea, shows that are open to non-members) We have a juror and...

    [quote user="Margo"] If you take your own photo, your are allowed to trace the arabesque of your own photo until the cows come home. It is your original photo. [/quote] When you paint from a photo, closely, not simply for reference, you are copying much of the creativity of the photographer...

    Most shows would not allow it, because that work, ea. the copy of Degas, would be considered a derivative work. If you read their prospectus, where they spell out what the show is all about and what is and is not allowed, you will usually see something to the effect that no diriviative works or works...

    A long time ago, I entered an "Animals in Art" competition at school. I loved owls and horses but was very poor and had no ready opportunity to see a real owl or a horse and no pictures of real ones to study for my painting. However, my mother had a Time Life book with a picture of a zebra...

  • Re: What is original art

    There are definite critical advantages to being part of the right art group. I know since joining the Renaissance Gallery, an artist co-op, I have become much more critical of my own work. I am much more productive of quality work. I have learned to be a bit more, can I say it, businesslike in my art...

    You bring up some real points in this. Money.This has always been an issue for artists forever. That is why artists have had to seek patrons. This idea that a true artist never considers such mundaine issues as cost is foolish. Many artists band together for more than moral support, although that is...

    I've seen work on other sites that was coached from vague idea to composition, to color suggestions ("now layer it with "pumpkin orange") complete with the piece photoshopped with the coach's "fixes" until it looked like something that "coach" would have done...

    Just suppose the variables of every moment of life as one creates, combined with the variables of being an individual artist, serve to ensure an original work every time! Then the artist must decide if those who know less should matter at all! All the best to you and your group.
