I have to say this again. And again.
If you like an artist’s work, don’t just like: comment and share. You have an important role on an artist’s work specially on these social networks. We all like to have some feedback on our work. And don’t forget to credit them. If you post a quote it’s important that you credit to the author, sometimes knowing who’s the author, their background, time, etc can make it have more sense. With an artist work is the same. And it’s not only a sign of respect but recognition by our work. Sometimes I like a photograph and have to spend longtime searching for the author, so I can see more of their work.
But we can’t stuck on internet. If you like art, no matter if painting, sculpture, installation, video or photography: Go Out! visit exhibitions, go see our work at the museums, cultural centres, art galleries… it’s so important to see our works alive and kicking.
Besides, sometimes we make an idea of an art work on internet and when we see it live it changes completely. Like the case of Gioconda… didyou expected it so small?
Anyway, couple tips if you’re in Paris or London:
David Lynch is back, and he’s showing new fantastic photography at la Maison Européenne de Photographie: “Small Stories“. This, in case you’re in Paris, from Jan 15th to March 16th.
But if you’re in London, from Jan 17th to March 30th, you can see at The Photographers Gallery: David Lynch “The Factory Photographs“; William S. Burroughs “Taking Shots” and Andy Warhol with his Photographs from 1976 to 1987.
and when you see my own work? do you have any idea of the size of my photographs? take a look:
