Dana Sibilsky—Are Artists Today Lazy?

Published by:

I got curious as I normally do every once and a while and decided to do a comparison. I asked myself, “What is the difference of art hundreds of years ago and art today?” One could only wonder and so I began my research. What I found disappointed me as an artist. In the picture I provided, you can see the detail in each individual person. The lighting is just right, the shadows, you can get an idea of what is going on in this image. In fact, you can actually see the passion put into it. If anyone knows anything about me, they know I am serious about passion and the role it plays in our lives.

In the image under the first, you can see the “art” on the wall. What is artistic? Where is the passion? The effort? Where is anything? It’s a giant red canvas with some vertical lines. From the research I have done over the past 24 hours, I am now asking myself, “Have we gotten lazy as artist?”

Obviously there are specialists who are sluggish and untalented. In any case, that is not distinctive to whatever other field, there are dependably trick craftsmen and imposters holding up to exploit individuals and the craftsmanship world is the same.

The craftsmanship market depends intensely on notoriety and advertising meaning certain people enjoy a certain time of art. It’s like asking someone who is into a rock music and listens to genre they do not connect with if music is going downhill. In other words, know your audience. Every craftsman is a brand in themselves and numerous individuals have effectively abused that certainty. Be that as it may, when I say ‘apathetic and incompetent’ in reference to such individuals, it’s just in connection to the generation of fine art. To be effective they would in any case need to put a considerable measure of exertion into systems administration and showcasing.

A reasonable correlation may be with a pop-performer that has never figured out how to play an instrument or read music or learnt to sing. They likely still needed to put a considerable lot of time and exertion into getting to their position, just very little of it went into music.

However, nevertheless as pop performers, not all specialists that paint only hues are untalented. You can’t reject everything in the same kind with a handwave like that. A few craftsmen who paint conceptual works are extraordinarily committed to their art and profoundly in fact gifted. The answer is to invest some energy considering the work, you can’t see a sketch initially, it sets aside time to comprehend it and here and there you have to see a couple of the craftsman’s attempts to get a thought of what they’re on about. Much the same as that collection that sounded sort of exhausting the first run through however completely turns into your most loved unsurpassed music after you hear it out a couple times, your mind can set aside a touch of time to adjust to another visual tasteful.
