Why Make Art?

Ciro La Ferola replied:

"..The art that holds my hand in this life, it is poetry. However, for some time, I wanted to express my interest in the mysteries of color, through painting. Having found that it can conceal a poetic message, including the nuances of a painting, it was one of the most beautiful gifts that I myself could give me. Today I use the paint when I need to tell it so I can not find words. My work in painting began life as a recycling of images (mostly advertising) clipped from magazines and newspapers, and reinserted in articulated collage of contexts from me paintings on wood with acrylic paints. To give your subjects a higher purpose, so if we can define it, from the simple sale of objects."

What do you do after setting up your own website and posting those images for the world to discover your talent?  While waiting for that enlightened day, figure out the true art of the web - the art of communication.  Then strike up a dialogue with the only person who'll ever really understand what you do - another artist.

Hanjo en La Hispana  by karen kruse

And now what do I do? .... Seems the expression.. [Goto..]

Hanjo en La Hispana  by karen kruse

Hanjo what were you thinking of there? You certainly don't look too convinced. Maybe you could throw some light on what was on his mind then, Karen? Strong colourful painting.. I think you've made that panama hat become his trademark.

En el metro  by karen kruse

Well! At least I got you here again! That is something! And I’m glad for it. Un abrazo desde aquí, amigo mio. (I also prefer this one..: ).. [Goto..]

En el metro  by karen kruse

Bravo ... Me siento honrado por su dedicación (I hope Google Translate has improved their service). Karen your new paintings are very good, they are definitely you, your painting style and measure but looser and more confident. I like this one best... it's a beauty.
Hello to all my friends, I hope you're all well. AP is still my preferred art site and I'm sorry for my lack of activity... [Goto..]

Aracne  by vincenzo cignozzi

Haha!!! Please forgive my absolute ignorance of Ovid, but when I saw this painting I thought man that's exactly it - you get lured in and bam! you're trapped in her web... and it'll take 25 years or more to escape, even if you do manage to muster the strength after all those years.
It's too good this painting - I'd never have had the balls pull a work like this off (quite indicative surely).
Thank goodness however, for Vincenzo and the classics... [Goto..]

Do you wanna build a snowman   Kristina Lycke

The title lesson. One shouldn’t give a title to the painting until it’s finished unless the name can be very long or neverending, like : “do you wanna build a snowman? I’m not really convinced I wanna as it’s turning into a snowman-saurus and more, but do I have to stick with it until the very end? . . . . ” and so on . . . .  [GoTo..]

You can have a look at this, Gigi. [GoTo..]

bouncing   Maria Xagorari

I'm glad you are still around! I find the story behind this intriguing. Would it be too much trouble to describe the disaster and the resultant mess? [GoTo..]

Mah..   Maria Xagorari

I see her as comfortably dissociated. She's almost grounded (look at her feet and their distance from eachother) but it is as though she is lingering between two expectant moments versus, perhaps, where she'd prefer to be. I like this one very much. [GoTo..]

she   Kristina Lycke

Dear Jp: the she is of course a he now and i didn't manage to leave him out. He walked into the painting without announcing it. I will see if i can find space for "she" somewhere, in the coming days. I didn't manage to listen to what i can leave out. Sorry Miles.  [GoTo..]

nice story, i we like to learn more on this issue please any body   [GOTO..]

There are not many places to exhibit, in this local area without having to join a art group. There are two but I decline to join as they do selection on the art work and no guarantee you will get your work in exhibition. It costs a lot to frame your work, and also the amount of hours spent on the work. There was a census for a gallery to be opened in the area, said it was not viable.

There was a group, the main problem is getting people to help with the exhibition. Peopl  [GOTO..]

I am so happy to have Hillel around to do the reading and digesting of the endless confusion of commentary and critique and opinion and analysis which has infested the artworld
I love the simple clarity of the twin paradigms - illusion>flatness,flatness>illusion which he has created for us. A satisfying summary of 100 years of artwork, allowing me to put MY time to better use!
