Artists discuss Artworks

Hillel Kagan
Hey man I'm a Jew! Do you really think that after a lifetime of being baited by some of the best and most cunning, I would fall for a lure as cheap as the one you've offered here? Did You really think ..goto
This is a lovely little painting that I've been looking at for a couple of years now. I've often wondered what is the attraction, is it the sitter herself, for some time I thought it was. Having met y ..goto
I idealized it. I'm a parquet freak. ..goto
Keeping the whole lot open, paintings that are never finished and the impossibility of doing so. Classical forms and an imbibing of art history yet a striving toward new form. How can one produce in a ..goto
A very strong and beautiful painting, I don't understand Karen's words above but I agree totally.  ..goto
Hi Patrick and welcome to ArtProcess.
This a beautiful painting, very loose and open like most of the work in your portfolio. Keeping things open and moving that's the real trick, a painting can  ..goto
Couldn't agree more j-p and the many comments attest to the spirit of freshness that Patrick's work and presence has already contributed. I don't want to stir things up but it has occurred to me that  ..goto
Maestro, although I met you but for a brief moment, I mourn the passing of a fellow artist, especially one so filled with joy and life as yourself. ..goto
I like it. Sure its a little Freudian (Lucien that is) but in all honesty and of course this is only my opinion I prefer it to your more recent efforts which for me (although interesting) are a bit to ..goto
Is that as in "well done!!!" or just "well!!!" the way Jack Benny used to say it? ..goto
My lesson from Cezanne is different than the way you perceive it but then everyone has there own take. The so called cubists are all very different maybe Leger comes the closest to using that Cezanne  ..goto
I like all your work a lot. I've seen it on site before and have been meaning to comment. You're a very young fellow and the work is fresh and interesting. So take a word of advice from an old geezer. ..goto
Karen, you got it in one. Without going into who the people are, they're gone from this world now, you're observations are pretty much right on the mark. You've conveyed it much better verbally than I ..goto
Thanks for a very good conversation. Having reread your contribution to the Forum I think It's a beautiful piece of writing, I didn't want to respond there because I'd like to see it remain on the hom ..goto
Sorry I worded that poorly , I was trying to combine a couple of notions. One of them being that your work of late is changing and the other that deconstruction is necessary for reconstruction. For me ..goto
This a very strong work, a beautiful painting.  ..goto
I really like all these door pieces. Very lovely work. ..goto
j-p???... alive..... he's a-l-i-i-i-v-e, A-A-A-L-I -V- E ! ! !
I'd heard that you perished under a huge load of dirty dishes, apparently just a nasty rumour... this is wonderful news.

Ok, I see your point... you feel like you can spread out a bit in a larger format. I understand that, it's just that I feel portraits, especially yours are very intimate so I visualize them as being s ..goto
I like your work very much. I think this one is amongst the best in your portfolio. I love the light and the ambiguity of the nude male figure seated in the wicker chair. A powerful composition and ve ..goto

It does look like a fine work. Very interesting forms in the shoal (rock formation) and I agree with JP that the overall feeling is one of ease and sureness. But I think Karen's main project has been  ..goto
Karen I like the new paintings very much. This new portrait is very good. the head and background interacting very nicely... the best "Raul" to date. Mind you his expression, I wouldn't exactly call  ..goto
Truly a beautiful portrait, even if it is of Hanjo. When are you going to undertake a portrait of me? My only request is it be a full figure, actual size portrait in the nude. Besides for your usual m ..goto
It's a bind because on the one hand you simply can't expect to make a living as a full time (creative) artist and on the other, it's practically impossible to develop your art fully on a part time bas ..goto
Well spoken JP however it's very nearly impossible for an individual artist to give an opinion on everything thing he/she sees. We always have an opinion but as so often happens, and you see this qui ..goto
Well Hanjo, I think it's a very interesting work. Certainly your most recent work is much stronger and more masterful and you seem to be on the top of your game however I do like this one too, archec ..goto

Thanks for your comment JP and it's an interesting one. I'm sure I've said this before but I really don't care what the impetus is for what an artist does. For me the motif is merely a pretext for hol ..goto
There was never anything wrong with the AP concept other than there being very few artists willing to engage and say anything. Denis's "yawn" is hardly a comment, I suspect it was meant to communicate ..goto

I really like your paintings. They have a kind of gravitas. Where do get your ideas from? There seems to be some kind of theme yet I can't put my finger on it. Do you work from life or are these imaga ..goto
This is a magnificent painting and truly the work of a master. Certainly one of the world's great artworks, I count myself amongst those who believe it to be the greatest. No doubt it resides in the  ..goto
Hi Hanjo, thanks for your comments and it's nice to be back and read your words again. Uh oh, it looks like the troupes may be reassembling.

Mr. Delaney, I'm not sure I know what you mean whe ..goto
I say "innocent" in the sense of trying to eliminate the mind from the seeing process. The mind has the experience of what a thing is like. It is possible to see just the abstract forms and shapes and ..goto
So Karen, do me a favour and tell me what I said. I need a good laugh today. ..goto
Really joyful work. You must be a really happy guy or an alcaholic. I like all your images. ..goto
Hanjo, narrative or not it's a good solid work and I certainly concur with your reasoning for not uploading any new work without the right to delete them. That's the same reason I will not allow The P ..goto been meaning to comment on Hanjo's latest series of paintings and I came across this beautiful conversation.

Thanks for the comments J.P. When I get a chance I'll post some of my earlier, more abstract stuff. The funny thing is beneath the surface of them there's all this very resolved imagery that drove me  ..goto
Wow, simply throw the door open, I just never thought of it, you're definitely a man of vision. And yes the children of geniuses are unfortunately, inevitably damaged.
My main concern right now is ..goto
Hanjo all your points are well taken, sorry for my slight confusion and I definitely don't want to turn this into a book so I think we should end this one here. Thanks for a fruitful discussion. ..goto
No apologies necessary, j.p. It's all part of the dialogue, but I think my point was made. We all have a different take on this thing we call art and that makes life interesting.For instance, Hanjo's  ..goto

That's very funny, thanks for your comments. The exploded view of the box just happens to turn into a cruciform. I can assure you there was no personal or religious intent.

Extremely fascinating work. I like the sculptures in your portfolio as well. ..goto
There is a lot happening - density, push pull. Very little cliche and some nice surprising areas here and there. I like it, bravissimo! ..goto

Your work has been undergoing some kind of change of late and it's been interesting to watch your evolution... this one's lovely. ..goto

Nice still life.

And I like the painting you're working on in your studio log, you just have to have the courage and confidence to keep going and go where no man (or Maria) has gone before.  ..goto
Congratulations Mirek. The attention is very well deserved.
I'm very sorry to hear of your accident and injuries, I hope the damage is not permanent. Best of luck. ..goto

Thanks, Fotini. The quality of the colours is what actually changed when I retuched it. And the surface. I have started working more on the charm of thicker material. ..goto
Thank you. You have no idea how much this means to me... Well, I think my work has, among other things, been influenced a lot by the interaction with you people on this site. So I am really terrified  ..goto
Your photographs are really interesting but your painting images are of such low definition that it is almost impossible to view them. Why don't you try to upload larger files? ..goto
I can perfectly comprehend the need of an artist to hear comments on his work. On the other vhand, I cannot but share Hillel's view.

In the past, some of us had thorough discussions on both the use of photographs in painting and narration. I think Mirek here is teaching a lesson of how an artist can get inspiration from one visual  ..goto
JP, I think you are not right in saying this. But let's take this conversation outside, let's say in the forum room.
Congratulations Mirek, and I am very sorry to hear about your condition too. I too hope injuries are not permanent and wish you the best.  ..goto
So, Mirek? how did the show go? Tell us. ..goto
I was about to say something here but Hillel cover me completely. Well done Mirek and one day we will talk about this conceptual nature of your work wich interests me too very much.
Good luck with your exhibition Mirek. Let us know how it went. ..goto
It seems like you are getting ready to allow some narration into your work. Am I right?
After having seen Paula Rego narration is not a demon for me any more. All the contrary. ..goto
I will soon answer my friends, with details on what I said about this painting. I just have to take a short trip and when I am back I will tell you all about what I have in mind. love to all. ..goto
YES! Time for change has come. I expect to see new, interesting elements in most of our works. ..goto
There was one more painting uploaded between this and the triptych (or was it after this?). What happened to it? ..goto
No... I would be disapointed. Actually, for some reason I don't remember well I liked it more than this one.
Karen and Hanjo, I would be interested to know what each of you thinks of Paula Rego's work. Especially her Dancing Ostriches series

the surelist point of view is out done by the colour expression." good keep it up". ..goto
the torment in this picture is quite reminisant of death rebirth and afterlife. ..goto
a uniform pattern of dark and surcumbrant ills. ..goto
a very pronounced view of purple as a tree. ..goto
A good visual concept of red to show the true nature of the falme. ..goto
These peice I really love as it reminds me of what sometimes goes off in my head haha ..goto
a good contrast of pinks and purples good to the eye. ..goto
the green lines lead you arond the edge not to the centre, very clever. ..goto
a very good and intreging art work "love it." ..goto
A well placed uniform display of colours and lines" very good" ..goto
A quite uniuqe perspective of a person in some sort of contortion. very good. ..goto
a good and valuable art work so impressionable. ..goto
very mecarb and dark unusal but I see what you are saying. ..goto
A very good conceptual art work "cool." ..goto
An indepth view of relationship suffering. ..goto
A quite uniuqe insight into lonlely people. ..goto
The industrial point of view with nature is disturbing but true. ..goto
Reminds me of bieng in space looking down at an Island on earth. ..goto
very base form but eye catching.
the image reminds me of DNA and the centre is that of an ovam. ..goto
The pattern though basic show the the waves perfect giving a good perspective of water ..goto
The way the bridge controls the plume is inspiring. ..goto
Again DNA almost at the edge of the egg. ..goto
Very natural and origanal" very good I like this" ..goto
Very intricate love the swirlling effect very nice!! ..goto
the facial asspect is quite uniuqe. ..goto
I love this the mood in this is so full of good sensasion :) ..goto
A very uniuqe tallent. ..goto
Love the instyling of the obscure figure love it!! ..goto
She most definatlly is Juliet ..goto
WOW WOW!! ..goto
The patterns of blue and pink work well and compliment each other I love it! "HURAH FOR ART" ..goto
The digital fractulatiuon shows this composition to be insightful. ..goto
A very deep view of women an intended perspective I guess. ..goto
An interesting point of vision from thisa artist top rate. ..goto
The concept reminds me of a beach whale in final stages of decay ..goto
Very spider like I like it. ..goto
An interesting visual concept of two boats if that is the intention very good. ..goto
OMG!! EXCELENT!! ..goto
Nice and gentle i really like this one"" ..goto
But do they get the joke I hope not haha!! ..goto
god on the eye none offencive. ..goto
the constant of the opaque colour complements the picture. ..goto

Edward Hopper comes to mind but there is also a British artist whose name I can't bring to mind. Will post it when I remember. ..goto
This seems so different to the rest of your portfolio. I like it. ..goto
Although there is so much yellow it is not overpowering because of the figure. It's visually very satisfying and I like the concept (from medieval times?) of showing different phases of a life in one  ..goto

Hanjo, I've learned a lot from your explanation. Thank you. ..goto
Hanjo what a tutor you are. You have taught me so much in this painting. ..goto
Elaine, I'm very interested in the concept of Home. Were you , in fact, homesick when you painted this? It looks very tranquil but also a bit closed in. Does it relate to the land or to feeling - or b ..goto
I think this works much better than the previous one. There is an overall feeling of tension. ..goto
I can't remember making this comment (been moving house, mind elsewhere.)
If it was me,sorry, I can't remember. ..goto
It' just struck me that the style of these paintings is like certain artists from the '30s. Was that deliberate or unconscious, given the subject matter? ..goto
That made me laugh! I like these small paintings anyway and they've given me an idea on how to tackle a project I'm doing this comming year. Will put the stuff up on Studio log. ..goto
I like this but..dunno - the face shows pain but the posture is relaxed. The figure and the room are at odds. ..goto
well!! ..goto
great. like a modern Joan Eardley ..goto
yes, I too see something of Francis Bacon in your work, altough not particularly in this painting. ..goto
It looks stunning John-Paul. How could you bear to have your creation wiped out? I'm interested in the "story." I've done residencies in public galleries and didn't mind the public at all but when I d ..goto

Quite right. It's monumental. ..goto
Maybe you think they are not good technically but I imagine they have a presence far more powerful than a photograph. ..goto

I think this is wonderful. Your work is so striking but some of your images are so horrible that I don't want to look at them. ..goto
On reflection, the above comment is inadequate. I think I meant "Well, what can you say!" The thing that goes through my head is "bad day on the Planet." A touch of the werewolves. Somebody feeling ro ..goto
