How are you moving forward in the process of developing a series of works based on someone else’s work? How are you keeping the images the SAME and how are you changing the ideas?

3 Weeks Left of 1st Quarter!

Art is the product of process. “Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

#FourMoreDays to #BREAK

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School\

Edward Hopper “The Lighthouse at Two Lights”

#ThankGoodness it’s #Friday

#90 “You can condense, but you cannot simplify.” —Ann Lauterbach, personal conversation: The world is infinitely complex, and any attempt to simplify, which means the elimination of contradictory elements, will fail to capture that complexity. One can, however, attempt to compress or condense those elements into a more abbreviated or altered form. That is the role of metaphor. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School
