I Love Starting... I Love Finishing... What About the Middle?

  (via faso.com)


 "Now, this is not to say that I finish all of the paintings that I start. There are some that I started too quickly without thinking about the composition. Those paintings are really doomed from the start. I don't mind giving up on those. That just teaches me that I need to think more about the composition and the painting before I actually start the painting phase. " (Doug Hoppes)

Red on Alert as EU Mulls Cadmium Ban

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "The Swedish report documents the toxicities of the popular pigment, which helps achieve bright yellows, reds, and oranges. Michael Craine, managing director of Spectrum Artists' Paints, an independent British manufacturer of artists' paints, told The Art Newspaper that the loss of the pigment would prove aesthetically devastating: The alternatives are not replacement pigments ... They lack the vibrancy of cadmium colours, are muddy-looking and disappointing." (Mostafa Heddaya )

Discuss: Sending past buyers sketches.

  (via faso.com)


 " Several artists I know have mentioned that they periodically send sketches to past buyers. They do it for two reasons: 1.) It helps them to keep communication open. 2.) It may spur the buyer to make a repeat purchase (the idea being that he or she will be reminded to check out recent listings). Another artist mentioned that she sends small study paintings ever so often. What do you think about this strategy? Do you view it as 'throwing work away' that could have be sold elsewhere? Or do you see it as a way to keep past buyers interested? " (Brian Sherwin)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: A rant about vanity art galleries

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "I'm surprised by the number of vanity art galleries that are able to thrive in this day and age. We all know what they are -- we understand the downside of their pay-to-play business model. Yet they continue to prey on (and profit from) hopeful artists. I can't grasp why some artists choose to 'feed' them. There are other exhibit options 'out there'. You don't have to settle for vanity galleries if legitimate galleries have failed to take notice of your work!" (Brian Sherwin)

 "Whether you sell a painting near and dear to your heart or take on a project that is bit more than you can do comfortably, it is all about the choices you make. It is my choice to continue working, my choice to take on big projects and to sell a special piece. Now, I'm going to have live with my choices, especially the choice to be an artist because it isn't a job, it is a way of life, and not an easy one. " (Lynne Hurd Bryant )

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: When a gallery refuses to sell art to a customer

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "The problem with this scenario is that the represented artist will likely not be aware of what happens behind closed doors at the gallery. He or she may not find out unless the buyer ends up making direct contact about the refusal -- or if gallery gossip travels down the vine. Granted, these issues are probably more of a problem for artists represented by high profile art galleries in major art world hubs -- such as some of the galleries in Chelsea... where social / financial status is King. Regardless, the issue should still be explored." (Brian Sherwin)

How to Think About Conceptual Art

  (via www.artspace.com)


 "Does anyone agree on what exactly conceptual art is? Not in absolute terms, but that's kind of the point. That Lippard and Siegelaub-two of conceptual art's most important proponents-have differing parameters for it hints to the movement's subversive intentions. " (Blair Asbury Brooks)
