Abstract and Surreal DDs for September

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 30, 2012, 6:54 AM

I hardly need to abstract things, 

for each object is unreal enough already.
(Max Beckmann)

:iconcommunityrelations: :iconabstract-and-surreal:


On a personal note:

Some of my recent DD features had to meet with opposition from a fair amount of dA users 
who are apparently not able or not willing to see beauty and meaning in minimalist pictures. 
For them every artwork has to be "impressive" or "sophisticated", 
they tend to think that an artist who creates minimalist artwork 
doesn't have to put any efforts in his work, which is totally wrong

That is why I'd like to close this feature with a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away.


Thank you for reading.

Você tem razão. A simplicidade é a melhor forma de expressar beleza. Não acredito que um artista precise dominar técnicas sofisticadas para impressionar. Basta ter o que dizer.

You have very good taste, and for those who don't get it I have pity. . . they are missing out on a whole brilliant range of art because they have accepted the superficial standards of our sensationalist society - ( Please excuse the alliteration ...).

Thank you very much, Steven. I think you put it very well, they're looking for sensation or even entertainment, probably because it's easier to consume...
