Practice: Self employed artist
Title of art work: The Visit
Description of art work/Pledge:
I have for years tried to grasp the nature of “what sells” and in desparation ended up following trends of other artists. It was one of my lowest points. I still remain conflicted as I see the likes of Tracy Emin produce line drawings that but for her “name” would be classed as rubbish. Yet Sir whosoever claims it to be wonderful. I could do that kind of crap in my sleep!
I must strive to be myself and while accepting that I am influenced by all that I have experienced, must not become a slave to “fashion” and trite “artistic” rubbish in the effort to make a living from this world.
