it fucking ridiculous that anyone that calls himself/herself an artist doesn't create his/her own art... I mean come on!
That's just plain fucking crazy. They exhibit all this really amazing intricate work that some amazing craftsman (who no one will ever hear about, or know their name) did and the artist (yeah right!!!) gets the credit for doing jack shit. I couldn't
possibly exhibit any work i didn't create with my own fucking hands. Simple as that. I understand if an artist creates
something and then has that reproduced on a larger scale. In bronze, ceramic or whatever meterials he wants to. Or even have help on bigger projects. Other than that, no fucking way in my book.
The creation of art is a journey. and a fun one to. You have a starting point and a finishing line. The satisfaction i personally get is pure and fucking priceless. It is like opening a present! When you have someone else creating it for you even if the idea was your's to start with. You miss out not only the fun but the creating process. Which to me makes it pointless altogether. It becomes a production-line type thing. A bussiness. That's not art to me. That just shows how fucked up the art world can be, and is at times.
