MY VISION OF ART...

   WHAT IS THE ART...?

"The sensitivity and perceptual intelligence

are those they make art something colossal"

Contemporary art, and in particular the plastic arts, feed off a tension between opposing poles that struggle to dominate the conception of art. Sculpture, theater, cinema and painting ... are the axiom, the beginning; and the installation, performance, video art and certain manifestations of urban art ... respectively are the refutation. This is but a reflection of the unconscious and imponderable propensity that leads the human being to inquire into the way of building itself as well as self-destruction.

 

There is a huge inaccuracy and little or no knowledge about what today is considered as art and it is this same ambiguity that leads to a large part of what is exhibited in fairs and exhibitions does not really come to be understood as such or even, if we are sincere, can be credited with such consideration. This is the only reason that leads me to enunciate here my peculiar and particular definition of art.

"Art is...  all creation worthy of admiration, product of ingenuity and human effort, capable of captivating the senses."

A true work of art has to integrate by this order, the following elements:

  • The fundamental fact of being original

  • Have a high aesthetic level - visual or acoustic -

  • Possess a high degree of difficulty

  • Be endowed with an appreciated and valued theoretical / practical content and

  • That really is able to produce admiration over the provocatio

“Art is the maximum expression of creative and imaginative talent."

Having an artistic ability implies being endowed with a faculty and a skill that

does not always imply having reached this maximum.

CONCEPTUAL ARTIST:

That as its name indicates, from which part an idea, conception or approach and whose final work is basically composed of elements already manufactured previously or has been made by other artists or operators, being he a mere supervisor of the process.

​​

PLASTIC ARTIST:

One in which both the origin and the provenance of the elements of conception or approach of the work are combined, as well as that of its total and integral execution or elaboration. He is in himself, completely, the beginning and the end of the work.

EPHEMERAL ART:

 
Any work, act, show, representation, composition, assembly or installation that due to its uniqueness or peculiarity can only be exhibited, staged or interpreted for a limited time. Therefore and as an accreditation of the event, only testimonial images or speeches remain.

 

PERDURABLE ART:

It includes any work or artistic representation projected with the purpose of not being subject to periods or time intervals that limit its observation or contemplation. In your case, if you are a participant in an eventual circuit, it must always have a stable location where it can be appreciated.

"Art has reached that point where much of the society's values are,

you pay expensive what just okay nothing and is what really gives you value.

We revalue the lie and tarnish the certainty."  Chicote CFC / 2012

“Art is everything that acquires the status of sublime, admirable and desirable at the same time as almost unattainable"

"It defines an excellence that is within the reach of very few and makes irrelevant what we are all capable of"

It is mistakenly assumed, there are prejudices formalized in advance by established stereotypes about what art is and is not, that we are conditioned when defining what is to be considered art and what is not, but this is undoubtedly a misconception that benefits those who never really were and never will be artists and who use the tongue twister of dialectics to achieve that purpose.

If this were so, it would be allowed (as unfortunately is already happening) that everyone could be an artist, with or without qualities, and that everything would be valid and admitted as an object of worship, thus making art as such lose its true value, coming to question its very existence.

If we do not establish a clear difference between what is good and what is abnormal, a child will never know if what he is doing with his behavior is a benefit or a detriment and therefore in his conception these words will completely lose their value and their meaning. meaning. The result will be that most children when they reach adolescence will end up being delinquents without guilt or remorse. For this reason, it is necessary to establish rules and conditions (which are not prejudices) so that every game can be understood, respected and learned by everyone. This is as obvious as the fact that if the rules of the game are not applied to a deck of cards, it would have no use at all, they would be mere postcards worthless.
