Quote from: Ivophoto on February 12, 2019, 04:37:20 amSmall connotation: I assume it was a human exploiting the monkey to start a dispute about a topic only humans are silly enough to find important.
Quote from: Ivophoto on February 12, 2019, 04:39:13 amThere is a clear difference between poetry and a visual art. You cannot compare Cricket with Ice Hockey, all tough it is both sport.
Quote from: rabanito on February 12, 2019, 04:51:49 amAnd between sculpture and painting (substractive/additive)You are right. I meant "Art" with capitals as compared w/"Craft"And w/ atouch of humor

Quote from: Ivophoto on February 12, 2019, 02:39:26 am... There is nothing so easily outdated as a photo on the wall...
Quote from: Slobodan Blagojevic on February 12, 2019, 09:23:29 amAbsolutely! One of your photographs on my wall would last... a nanosecond, perhaps?
Quote from: Slobodan Blagojevic on February 09, 2019, 01:48:12 pmYou two seem to overlook the context I said that: single line animals. Even more complex drawings and paintings by Picasso do not require great skills. They do require a concept, vision, idea, etc. Things that make contemporary art art.

Quote from: Chris Kern on February 12, 2019, 08:52:05 amPlease, please, please let us not conflate monkeys with chimpanzees. Monkeys just make casual snapshots. In the past, they carried around point-and-shoot cameras, but lately they just use their cellphones. They love to take selfies, often at scenic locations that they never look at directly, just through their tiny electronic devices with their faces in the foreground.Now before the howls of protest start, I acknowledge that some monkeys aspire to become serious craftsman. At least that's what they claim. But if you watch them closely, you will realize that the majority of the would-be craftsmen are really only gearheads. They gravitate toward Sonys because they enjoy spending hours fiddling with the menus.It's only among chimpanzees that you hear serious arguments about the distinction between art and craft. And among the primates, they're the least interested in camera equipment; they're more sharply focussed, so to speak, on the end product. They tend to make conservative camera choices: DSLRs, mostly full-frame, and they have a penchant for f/2.8 lenses. They don't seem to worry much about the weight. They're pretty strong and, unlike humans, you rarely hear them complaining about their aching backs.There is recent evidence, however, that some of the more adventurous chimps are getting serious about mirrorless. Jane Goodall recently observed a pair of them in a secluded forest shooting what appeared to be a DPReview video about a new mirrorless camera. She was able to get close enough to see the device, but unfortunately the chimps had covered the manufacturer's logo with gaff tape so she couldn't identify what it was. Guess we'll have to wait for the review to be posted on YouTube.
Quote from: LesPalenik on February 18, 2019, 01:13:54 amPicasso was lucky to have sold that piece. Today, any self-respecting curator or a competition judge would reject it because of missing leading line and central composition.
Quote from: Patricia Sheley on February 18, 2019, 02:31:29 am"missing leading line and central composition. " quote LesYou clearly missed the artist statement en verso: "First wife in long sleeved sweater pointing in the direction from which wife number two arrived."As by his own statement she is properly positioned off to the left casting her arm with flowing sleeve across the page and into some past and future. Quite modern in concept.
Quote from: OmerV on February 09, 2019, 05:11:08 pm...regarding the use of canvas on which to print photographs. Why? And what is so impressive about a photograph that looks like a painting and therefore should be framed as such?...
Quote from: Slobodan Blagojevic on March 02, 2019, 05:17:27 pmIt goes both ways
