Why Make Art?

Alex Mucci replied:

"..The artistic expression is a primary need of men today as in the past, the need is to communicate their emotions through colors and signs. So .... Why make art? The most direct and honest answer, of course, is always: "I do it mostly for myself." And it is the best, making art is born from an inner need to communicate, to express themselves, a need which develops well before mastering techniques for the purpose. And it is enough to fill any doubt about why you do art. But it is not appropriate to the question of why you do "artist". I create a work for my needs, absolutely true, incontrovertible, but if this can help me also to pay my rent, to justify the fact that I filled my free time to create, it would be much better. I make art for many reasons, why I'm in the game, and I can get in touch with others, and in comparison I can grow, I make art to get it right, seriously, and not necessarily to enter the market, at most to be able to get into market and to afford a kilo of vegetables. My main style is cartoony, realistic and manga: I think that, with the perfection of its bodies, is permeated by great sensuality. Sometimes I experience something more figurative and collage."

What do you do after setting up your own website and posting those images for the world to discover your talent?  While waiting for that enlightened day, figure out the true art of the web - the art of communication.  Then strike up a dialogue with the only person who'll ever really understand what you do - another artist.

Thx for the comment,
I may say that this work seems to irritate the people. Exposed during a local art competition did not even receive a notation, a friend of mine having seen the photo and thinking it was real, wrote he was glad I entered the art of installation, a friend painter told me i could spend my capabilities doing something else, another friend asked me :"WHY did you did it?".

Why coffee..? I was always wondering how I could use the left overs of my early morning coffee. I had a canvas ready and decided to experiment with it, one drop or two every day, the result is what you see. The creative process so early in the morning ignited this great feeling of peace, tranquility always accompanied by a piano solo in the background. To me that is a beginning of another day, hopefully a great one... [Goto..]

Looking at this painting in that room made me imagine that behind the camera the artist and lover actually engaging in a real love scene of their own, in a kind of life reflecting art context (possibly minus the sea and mountains).
Those intertwined hands really make the piece... [Goto..]

Don't know why but the environment of a long corridor lit from one side by a bank of windows giving onto closed rooms on the other, has always attracted me. Is it a cloister, a prison, a psychiatric ward? At any rate, whatever's going on in the rooms in this image seems ok to me. The red chair and warmth of the sun win over any threatening aspect the black ink might possess. Should Nú´s description of a space inside refer to her own internal space within, then there is much to discover here, according to this attractive painting. .. [Goto..]

grazie grazie, e' strano mi ricorda qualcosa ma non so' cosa, non so quale artista. il disengo mi fa' pensare ad un clown, forse perche' ascoltavo charles mingus, suo album the Clown. Sara' questo il titolo? The clown "who tried to please people like most jazz musicians do, but whom nobody liked until he was dead"

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..]

Has anyone here heard of Rudolf Steiner? He gave many new impulses in many areas. One of these areas is Art. He gave many lectures on art, he was a sculptor and painter too, among million other things. Here is a link where you can find many free books and lectures on art and other subjects: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA276/English/AP1964/ArtMis_index.html

The easiest way to find more art books is to use the Search button on the site
