Love that tree duder. Nice work. You should dectraoe it with real money and call it something original like "the money tree". I think it would sell right away.

But does the artist has to have a meaning in his work. Does he/she has to explain it? I think you necessarily have something to show, maybe just an impulsion, a though. But do you have to understand it completly to be an artist. Or is it non-artist that try to understand art and rationalize it by asking us "what did you want to tell with that piece of art"?

Please email me regarding whether I can publish some of your thoughts on our swanktrendz website. Hopefully it will give your circle a wider readership as well as recriprocally giving us a new take on the fine arts.

I guess you could also say that there was proof that Giotto didn't really paint his paintings since he worked with a studio of artisans.
'"God" is humankind's oldest bad idea.'
?We should instead choose Nitsche's clever, human-centered, assumptions about the universe that led to a particularly vile strain of totalitarianism?

"So, while scholars wrangle over whether Becket’s notes or his published plays ought to be taken as the final received text, we can trust in the reliability of God’s word and start to develop an artistic definition based on the First Cause."
Um, there is no evidence whatsoever -- in fact there are mountains of evidence to the contrary -- that "God" wrote the bible. Humans wrote it, and unless they were insane, they would be the first ones to admit that they neither heard nor saw "God" dictate these words, but they merely made them up out of whole cloth based on their own ignorance and superstitions (as people still do today when they talk about "God's will").
"God" is humankind's oldest bad idea.

You nailed it. Colors themselves are concrete on a certain level. People have all experienced red and specific reds can be concrete images of something. Pattern too could be concrete. The difficulty though with color or pattern is that they may not be concrete enough to spark an immediate response.
I have moved away from completely non-objective art in the past couple of years because I didnít feel like people could really connect with the colors and shapes I had been using. They instead connected with the abstract as abstract art and so never bothered to think any deeper than that level. I love the abstract and my compositions are still abstract but I feel like if an artist wants to connect with their audience in a non decorative way they have to find some connection with the concrete world that their audience lives in.
Keep going on your non-objectivity though. These thoughts are not a recipe for good art just my thoughts about it.
