Ask the Art Professor: How do you get out of thinking you can't get better?

  (via claralieu.wordpress.com)


 "We are inevitably our own toughest critics, and usually the expectations we set for ourselves are much higher than any that anyone else could possibly set for us. It's important to be critical, be ambitious, and to push yourself, but not to the degree that it actually prevents you from making the work. " (Clara Lieu)

What Makes Geometric Abstraction So Exciting?

  (via www.artspace.com)


 "When abstract art burst onto the stage in the Western art world in the early 20th century, its practitioners quickly resolved themselves into two distinct camps: the gestural abstractionists, who built upon the liberatingly loose compositions of Post-Impressionists like Cezanne to create non-objective paintings emphasizing the artist's hand, and the geometric abstractionists, who seized on the it-is-what-it-is essentialism of Euclidean geometric shapes.

Discuss: Destroying your art with business in mind.

  (via faso.com)


 "A lot of business-minded artists suggest that it is best to destroy (paint over, recycle, etc.) older works if they have yet to be sold. The idea being that those works are not up to par compared to works that have sold. Others have warned that unsold work can end up flooding the market at some point -- decreasing the value of work that was sold earlier. What do you think? Is it necessary to destroy unsold art to secure the market for future work?" (Brian Sherwin)

Evolution of an Artist Salon

  (via www.artsyshark.com)


 "Lots of bars would love to fill their quiet nights with drink-n-draw events. An artists' pot-luck brunch at a central private apartment works too. You can't hang artwork in the park, but you can still show your peers what you're each working on while having a picnic at the same time. There are tons of variations of Allison's salon that you can organize on your own using what's available in your own community" (Samantha Levin)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Do artists need a unified pricing structure?

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "If people can't afford to own your art... they won't bother with it. End of story. They will buy what they can afford if they wish to have art in their home. They won't magically start saving for more expensive pieces based on some form of unified / regulated pricing structure embraced by artists. I personally think that failing to acknowledge that audience is a missed opportunity. " (Brian Sherwin)

Painting, Relationships, and Balance

  (via faso.com)

And that type of environment will foster the balance it takes to concentrate and focus on becoming better, more proficient, and efficient in those areas of our lives that need development. And that creates freedom to be who and what we are created to be. " (Pauly Tamez )

Tip of the Iceberg: The Vast Underbelly of the Art Market

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "The growth in the observable art market over the last decade has been significant, and notable for how the gains in value far outpaced the gains in volume: from 2003 to 2013, the overall art market grew by 154.5% in value, and 43.7% in volume, according to The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) 2014 annual art market report, which due to the conditions enumerated above almost certainly undercounts the size of the market." (Mostafa Heddaya )

The Importance of a Certificate of Authenticity

  (via www.huffingtonpost.com)


 "One reason to limit the number of copies in an edition is to ensure the value of these objects by keeping the supply scarce. "A lot of people don't know, or aren't aware, that most sculptures are made as multiples," said Renee Vara, an art adviser in New York City. Providing information to buyers is less likely to scare them off than to give them confidence when they make a purchase that they are being treated fairly and honestly, she added. " (Daniel Grant)
