To what extent does art actually mean to you?
I don't mean the things you create, nor the work others create. But the medium in which these things take place. How do want the progression of art to go. What does this progression entitle? If you awoke a lifetime in the future, how would you want the medium you spent your lifetime practicing to look, to feel?
Truth is, I don't think I will ever be in a position to do art commercially. I don't think creating titles for others with my personality will work very well, as such. Art has become much more personal to me, and the images that I once thought were awe-inspiring don't peak my interest anymore. Even some of the goals that I made don't resonate the same way they used to.(It's not impossible to make commercial art for me, just feel that it is not as likely)
I do not claim to have a solid understanding of the medium that I will always be apart of, regardless of my skill level. But It is VERY important to me, that I do right by the medium. And whatever that entitles will be a personal choice, just like style is.
If you read this, I would really appreciate a well thought out and honest response.
P.S: I understand that this entitles talking about how art looks, but I don't want style to a topic of discussion. For me there is a ton of people who can paint and make images just like SPARTH. But, his art to me shows one thing I feel we are missing in the medium which is pushing the ideas to the next level. Not only are ALL his images interesting to look at, but he is constantly trying to find ways to re-invent his work while still progressing, while staying true to his beliefs as an artist. I recommend watching his interview for Spectura 3 if you haven't seen it, and then going to really look at his work. You can see the things he talks about with conviction are things he invested time to develop.
