Why Make Art?
"..I am forced to make art by the government."

I try to answer to your interrogation list:
1 “The Death” is a substantive and it is usually presented as an alive skeleton with a sickle , sometime riding an horse, ( think of Durer Death and the Devil) whereas I consider it an event or a process strictly connected to life.
2 In Italian the term Life is “Vita” and is feminine and I think that it fits better to my beliefs than the neutral term ( Das Leben )
3 The main idea was something going from warm to cold colours up to the absence of colour: the black. The form should be an organic abyss.
4 The main difficulties came from the background and I do not think to have solved them entirely.
5 I work quite slowly since I do not need to spare time, so I did not count it.
6 Not entirely but near to my expectation.
7 I am never completely satisfied with my works but I am glad if I succeed to transfer at least a part of my feeling to the viewer.
Aveva tre anni. Ed era nato a Kobane, nel nord della Siria. Scappava da una guerra che ha ridotto in polvere la sua città e ucciso migliaia di suoi compagni di giochi. Aylan Kurdi. È questo il nome del bambino morto annegato nel tentativo di raggiungere l’Europa.. [Goto..]
Thx for the comment,
I may say that this work seems to irritate the people. Exposed during a local art competition did not even receive a notation, a friend of mine having seen the photo and thinking it was real, wrote he was glad I entered the art of installation, a friend painter told me i could spend my capabilities doing something else, another friend asked me :"WHY did you did it?".
The "NOTHING" is disturbing.. [Goto..]
Why coffee..? I was always wondering how I could use the left overs of my early morning coffee. I had a canvas ready and decided to experiment with it, one drop or two every day, the result is what you see. The creative process so early in the morning ignited this great feeling of peace, tranquility always accompanied by a piano solo in the background. To me that is a beginning of another day, hopefully a great one... [Goto..]
grazie grazie, e' strano mi ricorda qualcosa ma non so' cosa, non so quale artista. il disengo mi fa' pensare ad un clown, forse perche' ascoltavo charles mingus, suo album the Clown. Sara' questo il titolo? The clown "who tried to please people like most jazz musicians do, but whom nobody liked until he was dead"
Sono indecisa ora sulla sua completezza o se puo' andare ancora avanti . . . avanti dentro il futuro????? oh my God . . . . [GoTo..]
Time to rotate... haha I know that well. I suppose it's an attempt to find a new way of looking at a piece that's already become too familiar, or a way to a lead that will get you out of that seeming impasse.
At any rate, by simply looking at the rotated image I believe that it's possible to see it in it's more technical sense of composition balance, tone, colour and light, and this might point out areas where further intervention is required. Sometimes the work takes off from there and [GoTo..]
I don't think an artists should be removed from the site .I think the artist should have images that they remove from their page as the add more . They should be showing that they have a greater understanding of their own work by removing images. They should demonstrate that they have moved beyond some of their imagers , as they grow in their art process.
The craft of the work is what makes it great . Each dialogue with the world is always personal to the artist . The viewer will come [GOTO..]
Of course my enthusiasm for Anthroposophy is based on practical experience of Steiner's ideas and new impulses.
I studied Art and Art Therapy in the UK at a Steiner college. I also lived in a village called Forest Row, which has put many of Steiner's ideas into practice. Forest Row has quite a few initiatives, some of which are: 2 biodynamic farms, the first waldorf school in the UK called Michael Hall and Organic architecture, to name just a few...

Haha Flavius... nobody's come to this forum in the last 500 years! You risk awakening some old ghosts, like myself :o)
Yes I've heard of RS, but personally I tend to avoid any form of collective ideology, however exceptional it may be. Notwithstanding, the few followers of Steiner I've met were likeable, interesting, and smart young people. Two brilliant computer programmers I knew were Steiner advocates.
Rudolf himself probably has had many interesting things to say on Art, [GOTO..]
The Nature and Origin of the Arts
By Rudolf Steiner, Ph.D.
Let us imagine a great snow-clad plain spread out before us and upon it here and there rivers and lakes hard frozen. The neighboring sea is mostly frozen over close to shore; further out huge floes are drifting; occasional stunted trees and bushes lift heads heavy with snow and icicles. It is evening. The sun has already set, leaving behind the golden splendor of its [GOTO..]
Has anyone here heard of Rudolf Steiner? He gave many new impulses in many areas. One of these areas is Art. He gave many lectures on art, he was a sculptor and painter too, among million other things. Here is a link where you can find many free books and lectures on art and other subjects: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA276/English/AP1964/ArtMis_index.html

First of all, I'm an artist. I recently found an art competition which organized by an Italy organization from the Internet, but inside the rules and regulation, it stated that all the submitted paintings will become the property of them as following:
Ownership and Use of the Works
In view of the fact that the activities undertaken by ARTEINGENUA for the publication of a catalog and the presentation and promotion of the artists, the works will become the property of ARTEINGEN [GoTo]
