The price is right

Post by stilltrucking » March 20th, 2008, 8:56 pm

How a non artist looks at art.

Well it is in a museum
Somebody paid a lot of money for it
So, it must be art

Beats me, I just like stuff that turns down the chatter between my ears.

i like it. it's actually soothing. even though RED is considered an very active color i find it restful for some unknow reason.

I am looking at something that exists in three dimensional space on the two dimensions of my computer monitor. And my screen is none to clean. But even so I see something there. THe light and the dark. Nothing to think about. Just is, but artists who slave away at their art, and die in poverty and after they are gone their life work brings millions of dollars to some one else.

I stared into traces so long I was seeing through it. Almost drew my nose to the screen to get a closer look. I saw the story of creation in it.

.
Traces
traces

My eyes crawled across it. I have no idea, later artguy said that it was actually incised into a piece of plywood I think.

Too much acid and nietzsche
I am barely sane
What did he mean when he said
"we must have art least we perish from the truth."

How does an artist know when a painting is finished?

thanks for the Red Square image source link, i'm going to explore it once i relax :) i also love the "traces" piece. it reminds me of a vision i had looking into oak tree branches. those marks are more, a language, a primordial road map of consciousness.


jack, how do i post stuff? i end up with just URL links on the screen and not the art piece or the youtube viewing screen. i'm not clear what i need to do at this site. thank you.

you are welcome
artguy says I artblurt 8)

Just that I am such an expert at phenomenology, I almost finished a book about it. What the hell can we really say about seeing a painting on a computer monitor. I guess it depends on the hardware to a large degree, i almost, well I did go into a trance state staring at traces.

THe red square I have not dove that deep into the red, at first I thought it was just red canvas but even on my CRT monitor I can see red within the reds.

sorry what did you say?
I just realized I totaly forgot
i like it. it's actually soothing. even though RED is considered an very active color i find it restful for some unknow reason.
oh yeah
thanks now I got another piece of knowledge to deal with when I look at art, Red is an active color,

Homer Simpson said Doh. :lol:

  • rothko red
    what do i seee?
    reddd
    deep visceral turnings
    red has always been a difficult color for me
    it has such energy
    it overpowers
    is not absorbing, but reflective
    imposing
    and here rothko shows
    a depth of field moody darkness red
    with a front banner of strong red
    not too much else
    just my 2 cents worth
    moron this later
[color=darkcyan]i'm on a survival mission
yo ho ho an a bottle of rum om[/color]

"Metaphysical Landscape" dominated by a black rectangle, "a window on the infinite which is unknowable, but it exists
I watched a show on Orozco
I should of taped it
a black rectangle
I searched and searched but could not find an image of one of his paintings called i Metaphysical Landscape. It looke like a sky full of clouds with a black rectangle in the center. My eyes drawn to the blackness, the way I tried to peer into the darkness of that childhood basement which was the repository of all my fears. A mystical feeling Man I would love to have a print of it, or better yet a mural painted on the ceiling over my bed so I would be looking into it every morning when first I awakened.



here is a comment by his son about that painting.
Quote:
His last paintings, which his son Clemente calls premonitory, show an abstract, airy "Metaphysical Landscape" dominated by a black rectangle, "a window on the infinite which is unknowable, but it exists."
"This type of mysticism," his son says, "is the mysticism of Jose Clemente Orozco."
I have not been a museum in years
I can't remember the smell
that museum smell

thinking with my eyes again
objectifyingt sensory data
well
that's all folks
that's my art blurt for today.

Yeah well heck
If I am chiseling these blurts in stone
I might as well continue
The only reason I used Red Square in reply to your Magic Square post was the only title of an abstract work of art I could think of. I thought your poem was abstract.
That is what I liked about it
I suppose I am too sentlemental about art
maybe because I am not an artist


If red is active
Black is ?
