If one asks an artist what is the hierarchy of excitement in their relations to their artworks, many may say the top is the process of creating the art. However, submitting art for a representative top exhibit is part of this excitement without any thoughts like must win or to be in. Art and science in early 21st century are an individual intellectual effort. In contrast to science where career oriented non-intellectuals have been corrupting and devolving science, the spiral of advance in the field of art today is very high and mostly upwards. However, art is so individual matter that not liked by 3-4 jury members should not worry any artist since she/he probably had already got at least several likes from friends and family.
The author’s submission will rely on already known work – Wheeler Historical Farm (2012) and her first work with Painter X3 “Black is color”. It is a gesture work (5-10 min) which scans learned in SLCC techniques of artistic expression based on catching a moment of mind when it is focused on being fast and organized. You don’t know exactly what will come out – this is like freedom which wants to promote itself. Gesture exercises are among the best methods in the SLCC in different art classes.
“Black is color” is the way to connect the hand drawing and the digital drawing. Many artists have switched to digital painting, which is one of the leading tendencies of the in early 21st century neo-Renaissance of art.
Representative art culminated for the first time in human history in the caves (Upper Paleolithic) – probably as art of the social power for reproduction of social power of leaders who first recognized the strong ideological meaning and function of art. Art is creativity and the human mind through social power immediately put it in very limited frames of standards, mythology, religion and canons. Thousands of years art served specific needs, while today the best art is an expression of the freedom of mind. SLCC teachers in art have developed the skills to embed talent in their students through professional knowledge of the best of art and by encouraging following the frames of traditionalism. From these perspectives, “Black is color” does not fit the standards, but it reflects the experiences obtained by following the standards.
