this wonderful artwork was featured in my news: [link] Please enjoy the incredible artwork of these deviants and give a little friendship: Visit their galleries, give some favs and if you like this news, give a comment and fave it, please, for more attention!
This piece is really interesting. Can you explain the process that you use? Are you just drawing over the photography and are you making the sgraffito or buying it? If you are making it what are you using? You are producing amazing textures and images. I'm inspired and would like to attempt some similar experiments myself.
your approach toward my art honored me...i'm passionate for experiments in art and i do encourage all artists to find their path in this jungle of art...to define a way of creating art, or another, is like trying to describe how this beautiful baby was born...we don't need that, do we?...i do encouraging originality,that's very important for a real artist...and watching your gallery, i believe that your have a wonderful style, your artworks are amazing...believe me, is more fun to be yourself... please, consider this a friendly message...sincerely, jon...
Hi Jon Thank you for your reply. I do indeed consider it a friendly and respectful message. I used to wander around college many years ago and pop into other artists studios to see what they were up to and chat about how they achieved what they were doing as they did with me. What materials, processes etc, it would often generate ideas but I would never 'copy' another artists work which I fear you felt was my intention. I guess publishing it on here may create that kind of situation and I sense some artists have had bad experiences with this kind of thing. As an art teacher I encouraged students to share ideas and emulate artists they admired or each other so that it might influence their own work in a positive way but I would never encourage plagiarism and certainly not consider it an option for myself. I have no intention of copying anybody at all Thanks for taking the time to reply to me. Larain
wow...you are an artist teacher, an art teacher...all my respect, Larain, I should ask you about so many things related and generating by cart creativity....myself, i'm the product of 3 years of east European graphic design classes and i slide from traditional/academic dogma and embraces the freedom of experimenting in art...new materials and technique...beyond Ernst, Tanguy and Matta...we keep in touch, dear artist friend...i appreciate your comment very much...thank you...jon
Hi Jon, Thanks for your reply. Feel free to ask anything you wish but being a teacher doesn't necessarily make me a better artist, although I became used to coming up with suggestions for experimenting or helping with techniques, that sort of thing, which is why I was interested in the process in your work. It was some time ago that I was a teacher. I have studied graphic design myself and actually was partner in a business for graphic and website design for awhile, although of course my first degree was in fine art. You seem to be much more like a fine artist yourself. I can see how Max Ernst and Robert Matta have influenced your work but Yves Tanguy had a very smooth and fluid surface to his work if I remember rightly. I must say though I'm influenced by so many different artists at different times. Lots on here are very good as well as the famous ones
wonderful and real message, Larain....for sure we will exchange ideas from both art experience, practical and theoretical part...wish to have more time, we will see....i wish you so much creativity and passion in your artworks....jon
Hi Jon, thanks for the really nice reply? Where in America do you live? Are you a full time artist and do you exhibit? Just interested, now you have made me curious. Your work is quite outstanding and interesting
honestly i don't have an idea where my series goes...future of it?...not a clue...you tell me if you know....i don't....thanks a lot for comment.....51 is for my soul, i like it very much...but not many like it, and i'm glad to have something less accessible...one day i will try to make this like 8/8 feet canvas...figure it out!........very appreciated your comment, dear artist friend...
i agree....for now i'm working small coz the lack of space....my art-work corner where i'm doing this is a table, a chair, two shelves with colors and all music from the world....on headphones...this is it....
