WoW. You have just penned a very insightful essay! On the American attitude and on my “art” in particular.
I do have an upbeat sort of outlook on things. Someone said “the combination of intelligence and naiveté is dangerous.” I don’t know how to be rude or mean, which is a hindrance in the workplace. I am spending more time on art now; making a living 9-5 doesn’t leave much time to get serious.
You are very insightful about the changes in America. Few Americans know any history or choose to ignore it. We have not had to endure the wars or toppling of governments that were the history of Europe, and the cockiness caught up as we let the gub’ment do for us and we have become fat and happy in ignorance.
I see the internet as the great leveller and also a new land of opportunity. It is also like going into a monster shopping mall or store…too many choices. Even your Metropolis Big City Vitality Style makes me a bit nervous!
But at least everyone has a chance to have their say… I do cards primarily because larger works pose the eternal problem of framing or being gallery-ready.
Ah well…I am so glad to communicate with you more! (and in English…my French dictionary is getting a work-out and is useless anyway for Big Concepts!)
I socialize with Cole on catster.com…that is where another cat member said my cats “embrace creative chaos” and it hit home!
O dear. It will be 100 degrees today and that will give me time to think more on your viewpoint from across the pond…
What if I have been Dada all my life? Even here!
