I say be happy to simply create as it is normally few and far between (and for some never) that you sell a piece. An Artist Has to Create to feel complete and if you aren't selling, not because you aren't trying, but because it just isn't happening for you, be happy anyway in the creation of your visions.
Thank you. But why should an artist have to be happy to simply create? I would be happy to simply create were I independantly wealthy. I actually prefer to keep what I make but must sell out of necessaty. I do believe nearly any artist can sell. The trick is exposure. An artist is their own best salesperson.
Hi Claudette. My name is Debbie and I was spontaneously drawn to your page - first by your image then later by your words. When I find resonance I like to just make contact. I've only been on artreview for a less than a week but I'm finding that it is filling a real void - for me. I think I spend too much time in isolation working away on my projects wondering. It's a real pleasure to submerge from time to time and be stimulated, inspired, mentally, visually. What a great space this is!
I am a Canadian living in Spain. I ressonate with your surealism as I spent a few years in that theme myself. I've made the turn towards sculpture and that is consuming me at the moment but still have this special form of expression in my heart. Anyway... have a lovely day!
Apocalypse means, revelation
Does The word derive from the Greek Αποκάλυψις, apokalypsis that means revelation (it is literally, for "the to get up of a veil", therefore in sense literal “discovery”).
In our way of thinking you is become in the time the term to express the end of the world, that precedes the final judgment. In reality the thought of Anselmi, the founder, is that to specify the pessimistic tendency of a to certain modern philosophy (what for some verses you also contaminates the art) that point on a catastrophism type medieval that darkens whatever positive aspect of our culture. To every good account I send You The text translated of the two thoughts of Anselmi and my to clarify the concept.
speaking of apocalypse
The friend Anselmi, creator group, sets the bases for a vision of our way to be:
WHAT DOES THIS GROUP MEAN? AND' PERHAPS A SENTENCE Á. THE END? A PALINGENESI CATARTICA THAT IT WILL INVEST US' EVERYBODY? , ART, ARTISTS ETC. ETC... DON'T LATELY HAVE DONE THAT A WORLD TO PROPOSE IN DECAY, A DEGRADATION OF THE PRINCIPLES THAT THE SOCIETY' HE OFFERS US, A SORT OF COLLECTIVE HYSTERIA WHERE THE POINTS OF REFERENCE ARE NOT ANYMORE' SUCH, AN UNCERTAINTY THAT PERVADES US AND THERE IT TEARS TO PIERCES CON HIS FEARS IT IS WITH HIS CATASTROPHIC VISIONS IN ATTENDED DI TO BECOME REAL, AN UNSTABLE WORLD, A FEAR OF THE FUTURE, A FEELING OF VOID AND DEATH, PERHAPS SIAMO Á. THE END OF THE WORLD THAT WE HAD BUILT IN THE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO HOLD UNDER CONTROL THE BEAST OF THE ANIMALITY FOOLISH AND OF THE CAOS WHAT REPRESENTS OUR TRUE ESSENCE, THE TASTE OF THE DEATH THAT FOR HOW MUCH WE TRY TO SUFFOCATE, IT BELONGS TO OUR DNA....
to which I answer
The world in which we live with all of its contradictions must be faced and not immediately. The tools to do this we find them to us to our inside and they belong to the collective patrimony of the humanity. We prevent that the values created by the founding myth our culture, correct or you distort that is, loses him. If this tragedy was verified us we would lose, in the most total alienation, every reference to our existential run.
Thanks, if one would know always what is going on in artists head it would be easier, I think it is just a creative stream beyond logical thinking. I see you are online, so night ghosts like you and me are very happy! xx M
