Art Galleries disappointing...

2012-08-26 06:19:28 by Sevens

I took my painting "Solitary" to this gallery in the SOHO area, to this place in which i was called out to by a security guard who had stopped me when I was walking past- He had told me that what I had was "real art", and that he really liked what I did, so he asked me to wait in the lobby area with my painting so he could get the gallery owner/critic on contemporary art... so. I waited and this woman comes out, and she told me that the work in her gallery is what is the "In" thing... and mine was still developing, and that I was not ready... so she looked through all of my drawings and checked out my painting within minutes if that... the tourist that were coming in to see the gallery show, were crowding my art piece and asking me questions, and she did not allow that to happen and told me to see what they had and then come out, now the art in the show were overweight super heroes that were badly done... and I asked myself... is this what the art world really is??
The tourist in the waiting room loved what they saw, and that woman watched.
I tried many others and none of them seem to be moved, even some of the artist who just splatter paint without even knowing how to use the medium get the credit that they deserve... you know what I don't deserve any credit, I don't work as hard as the guy that splatters paint, this is the world of art.

The world of art is pretentious.

Sevens responds:

tell me about it, doesn't matter how good you are... those people look at people through their noses.

The world of art still bobbles my mind. It sucks. :(

Sevens responds:

totally agreed, it is very discouraging.

I saw a story in the news a while ago. A couple of people were selling their paintings that were basically splatter messes for thousands of dollars to some snob who loved the artworks. She probably thought each droplet of paint was a metaphor or something. But it turned out, all the paintings were created by a toddler just flicking wads of paint around...

I might not personally like all art I see, but I still understand the skill and patience it takes to make it. Saying something is "in" is just stupid. Most people like what they personally like, not what others tell them to like (Except for the stupid people that follow whatever is popular).
