These are some of the main ideas I focus on in my art practice, in addition to the arguably more obvious issues of skill, accessibility, and narrow aesthetics etc.
I care about:
- “The appreciable manifestation of creativity,” emphasizing that art is something that can be perceived and appreciated, and that it is a product of creativity.
- The ability to create new or different relations between elements, highlighting the idea that art is not simply a representation or expression of the artist’s subjective experience, but rather something that arises from the manipulation or arrangement of elements in a new or different way, by creating new relationships between them.
- Radical Creativity
- The ability to create or discover new relations between elements, in a way that aligns with the framework of “Vita-Socio-Anarco,” promoting the well-being of all life, social relations and non-domination.
- Object-Oriented Ontology (OOO)
- An ontological framework that emphasizes the autonomy, presence and impact of objects and entities in art studies. It aligns with Heidegger’s concept of “aura,” which posits that artworks possess an unique presence that cannot be reduced to their physical or functional properties.
- An approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things, and the absence of a fundamental separation between subject and object.
- The ways of engaging with elements conducive to producing “Art.”
- Radical Artistry
- The ways of engaging with elements in a creative process that leads to the production of “Art” that promotes the well-being of all life, social relations, and non-domination as prioritized by the “Vita-Socio-Anarco” framework.
- A framework that prioritizes values for positive change and is used as a guide for Radical artistry, by prioritizing all life, then social relations, then non-domination.
As an artist, I am well aware that I am not infallible, far from it, but I strive to incorporate courageous vulnerability, authenticity, honesty, and humility into my practice.
By being open and genuine in my art-making process, I aim to create a deeper connection with my subject matter, audience, and the world around me, ultimately leading to more impactful and meaningful work.
Through honesty and transparency in my intentions, I hope to avoid confusion and build trust with my audience.
I also believe that approaching my art-making with humility allows for a more inclusive and diverse interpretation of my work, and encourages engagement from a variety of perspectives.
Thank you for your attention, I hope you’ve found this discussion on artistry informative and or thought-provoking. I believe we can all contribute to creating a more positive, meaningful and impactful world, also through art.
I wish you all the best in your journey and hope we’ll continue to explore these concepts and avenues further. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
