We had a great time chatting it up on the topic of art. Replay below.
SOME NOTES I wrote down during this presentation:
Standards are shifting. Trends. Man Ray. Duchamp.
Print competitions don’t mean a thing. Juried shows are a foot in the door to galleries.
Watch movies. Brian’s fave director is Ingmar Bergman.
The more creative people, the better.
Thomas sez: “Visual vocabulary.” It includes everything you have taken in in your life. It’s a language.
Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung. Symbolism.Collective unconscious.
Always being aware, art is all around.
If you can’t go out in your backyard and create art you have more to learn.
People bring their perspective into their work.
Everything your do with your camera is manipulation. All photos are a lie.
Book recommendation The Command to Look by William Mortensen
Godess in every woman.
Your art must be your best friend.
Brian: “Get your fave band’s first album, go to the third song and create a photo session based on that song.”
