THE AVANT/GARDE DIARIES: KEEP FEEDING THE MACHINE
One of the most powerful tools at an artist’s disposal is the inspiration provided by those other creative forces that he respects. A great thing about the lives of 21st century artists is that we have the opportunity to share our insights and the insights of others through video on the internet.
David Gensler of the KDU/SVSV and artist Kostas Seremetis talk candidly in the AVANT/GARDE DIARIES about how that same blessing can be a curse, and how the visibility of the arts and transparency of the artists behind them have slowed the process of achieving greatness down to a level artists like Picasso and Pollock never had to deal with in their Twitter-less age.
It’s a great commentary on moving from inspiration, to appropriation, and up to fashion, and it will give you a little more juice if you’re running low on creativity today.
