What Type of Art Do I Think Will Have the Most Influence on the Future?
the real question in relation to influence is will the art viewing public understand that it is now able to view from a much larger base of art - and to purchase from a much larger base of art than ever before - any individual - whether they are a well honed collector or a beginning collector is able now to adventure out into the world and purchase from all different artists directly - without censorship and judgement that individuals have been used to being subjected to for so many years -
Think of it this way - the viewing public of Television is no longer subject to the large networks but can now access how many cable stations or merely circumvent the cable stations and rent or purchase videos of the genres that appeal to them - I think that one or two television programs a week is all that my wife and I watch while at the same time she chooses to rent and purchase many different movies that are the type never shown on any of our local television stations - it is a much richer experience than anything that I have had before this system of video rental was devised but it must be studied and careful selections must be made in order to have an enjoyable experience in viewing rather than simply watching what the latest or popular viewership is onto -
Likewise - yes there are a lot of works of art that patrons of different restaurants and such are being exposed to but there are even more artists from all over the world who are now displaying their work *(as am I) only on the Internet and to get a full view of what is available and what would be of most interest to one's personal taste a person would have to search quite a bit of art being created today and not limit themselves to what a handful of galleries and dealers have chosen to hold up to you as - important - the best - the most collectable - the most valuable or any other such judgement that someone else might make for you rather than you make for yourself -
Also, in the whole picture of things in relationship to the current dynamics of the new economy - there seems to be a lag time between what is going on in the world as a whole and the understanding of the New Rules of the New Economy as far as art and its creation and collecting of it - perhaps a reading of this might spark an idea in someone's head reading this:
The New Rules For The New Economy
If the last 10 or 15 years of my creating is contemporary - as Anthony Smith puts it - what would categorize my over 40 years that I have been creating prior to these last 10 or 15 years -
I am extremely thankful that it is my feeling that I have simply just touched the surface so far up until this point in time and have an extremely large body of work yet to create and will indeed be looking forward to an endless life here on planet earth - excited to see what comes around the corner next - especially in the way of people's changes in the way that the perceive things such as is being discussed here as well as in the technology fields and well - in every other walk of life or field of endeavor!!!!
