Amazing how much of what he said about children applies to art. Further evidence that art mimics life, or is it the other way around? Thanks Maria!

Comment on Cats Don’t Paint by Ray Cabarga http://siennablu.com/blog/2011/04/23/cats-dont-paint/#comment-336 Ray Cabarga Wed, 05 Oct 2011 16:32:04 +0000 http://siennablu.com/blog/?p=105#comment-336 Thank you for that Barbara, You're right, I was just having a little fun. I didn't think anyone had actually seen that book. I just used it as a vehicle for my acidic type of humor. I also love cats. Thank you for that Barbara, You’re right, I was just having a little fun.

I've seen this happen so many times with these major art competitions that there's no point, for me, in putting any effort into them (i.e. entry fees) when it's just a random drawing, a craps shoot, disguised as a juried competition. And I feel that it is not completely subjective. Yes when you are in the creative process you must eliminate all comparisons, judgments, and doubts but when judging a contest where the work is defined and finished and you are not thre artist in the creative process, you can do some objective comparison. You can hold the work up to a standard and judge it according to that standard. No just a rant.

Many collectors seem to buy art based on love at first sight, from my experience- and who can convey with words what is accomplished by the hands of an insightful and talented artist, and then captured in the viewer’s mind and heart? I think it is simply that moment that intrigues the audience, and for every peice of art, there will be as many pontifications as there are ticket holders... but the next time someone tells me that they are buying a piece because they are wild about the meaning of it all, I will be glad to oblige my deepest thoughts. Barnett Newman, an American artist of the early 20th century, once wrote “Aesthetics is for the artist, as Ornithology is for the birds. “ Clement Greenberg, an influential American art critic associated with modern art, and who was among the first critics to praise the work of painter Jackson Pollack, argued in 1960 that “…each artistic medium should seek that which makes it unique among the possible mediums and then purify itself of anything other than expression of its own uniqueness as a form”.
