When still at High School I’ve seen some cards with Jeffrey Jones paintings and they left a very deep impression. They reminded me Vrubel’s art: dark and mysterious.  Several artists I’ve admired in the past don’t feel so great any more but I keep on coming back to these haunting pictures.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.

Empty Eyes

In Uncategorized on November 5, 2011 at 08:25

I used to take part in many artists fairs, markets, carnivals, open days and so on.  The sight of people continuously passing by with their empty eyes and tight lips was heartbreaking. No, there were some friendly and interested looks, but still… Maybe many sought the art was a waste of time altogether. Maybe they really hated my style, maybe they felt sorry they didn’t do anything creative in their life. I shouldn’t judge them too harsh as I probably often have the same gaze passing by other artists demonstrating their work… I’d hide my feelings even if I really like what I see. It’s cold, cold world…

Three Things you should Never do to an Artist…

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2011 at 16:49

From my own experience & what other artists told me:

– Never say “you have talent”. For many artists it translates into “you don’t work hard – just use your talent every time, have a free ride”.

– Your painting is very good: it looks almost like a photograph… (then whats a point of doing a painting???)

– Never give to an artist an artwork of another artist as a gift unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure he or she will like it. Just ask! We lot have normally very strong preferences in art!

PS. Personally I found patronizing words like “clever girl” be real killers…
