thats so nice of you, but i'm afraid the secret to looking so young is that i've never grown up. And thats not a trait i'd wish on anyone. I've now realised that conformity = happiness. I wish i'd learned that years ago instead of holding on to my teenage rebellion.
But if i had conformed, i wouldn't be doing this... And i love being a deviant!
oh, sorry about that Michele lol That comment was made Oct 8th I think was a bit bitter then because I experienced my first hater on dA and was lashing out. No offense taken, I hope. I didn't mean it. ^^
There isn't really anything thing wrong with pantie shots, but i cant understand how she can say it is art.
It wouldn't other me if she said somthing about her peices in the description, or if he said what the photo's were about when i messaged her.
I've asked her politely and she never relplyed.
Different people find art in many forms. Whether it be a pile of rocks, steel structures, the human body, whatever.
Freedom of expression allows people to express themselves however they want and call it art if they want to. For example, Pro-Hart used canons and shot blobs of colour onto whatever he fancied, and it was art.
Your comment above, "...but i cant understand how she can say it is art.", really shows that you are very narrow minded. You need to open up your mind and be aware that, while you may not think so, some people's art is art to them and others, the same way as the western culture may not find a saucer shaped bone in the lower lip of a female attractive, yet in the amazon basin, this look is very attractive to the male members of the tribes there. Each to their own.
Making comments like the one above shows your immaturity, lack of tolerance and narrow mindedness. I suggest you have a look at art in other "real" places like an art gallery and art from other cultures around the world, and then re-evaluate how you see art.
And one more thing... if you don't like the gallery from the artist you commented on, DON'T LOOK AT IT... No-one has forced you to look at it.
There is plenty of art from artists on dA that does not interest me, so I don't take the time to look at those categories. Easy. And I am certainly not going to waste time telling people I don't like their art, as I am sure many other people probably do. It would make me look like a fool....
I suppose i could have phrased that a bit better... it's not really her gallery itself that i don't like, it's more how she gives no comment towards the artistic merit behind her pieces.
I've been talking to her lately, she is a very strong woman and i look up to her for that. I just don't like it when an artist says something is art and gives no explanation as to why, even when prompted.
If art is an expression, all i ask is for the artist to mention what exactly they are expressing thought the image.
Before you get the wrong idea, this dose not just apply to nudity or fetish portraits. I have the same thought process when viewing a landscape photograph, a bunch of colors splashed onto a canvas or a urinal turned upside down.
Oh, and for the hell of saying it... I have not been outside this country to view what other cultures perceive as art, in the case of michellchan it wouldn't be nessisary as i live in the same state as her.
One of my favorite places to sit back and realize is the local art gallery which usually has a new exhibition every 2 weeks from all around the world. So, i have re-evaluated what i see as art enough to come to a conclusion.
An individual cannot understand the artistic meanings behind a image without, in most cases, the help of the artists of the piece. If the artist can not put the piece with a meaning or any expression what so ever then they are not validating their own reasoning of it being 'art'. If a piece can not be validated as art, i usually refer to it as an 'illustration' or an image just to satisfy their vainity.
So my critique, really is just a regurgitation from the original artist.
Ooo, a compliment. I didn't see that coming... i was half-expecting a flame-war xD
Don't worry about being blunt. I tend to be straight-forward when ever I'm trying to say something and i've found it the best way to get a point across.
It should only be expected of me to be able to handle it when other people are blunt aswell. ;3
