Art And Culture-From 1999 With Love

The Following Essay Is Based On Actual Events

The art critic, Harold Rosenberg, once called the two-dimensional plane of a canvas “an arena for action.”  The artist’s climactic turmoil lies in the fear behind trying to discover new boundaries to analyze, beyond the space of the picture. As a matter of fact, the Avant-Garde have explored and pushed the creative envelope beyond the boundaries of perception. Comparatively speaking, the possibilities and breakthroughs in modernism, spanning hundreds of years, are now the masterpieces that collectively hang in art museums.

The argumentative thinker ponders on certain situations where the audience clearly misappropriated the intended message. To say, “we are divided on racial lines” over the airways does not constitute a racist statement.

To Argue With Facts In The Age of Social Media

"We are divided on racial lines"

The very first step in making an argument is to ask yourself what you are trying to prove. What is your conclusion? Remember that the conclusion is the statement for which you are giving reasons. The statement that give your reasons are your premises.

Artist Thesis

Describe your art as if you were describing it to someone who has never seen it?

What do you make and why do you make it?

Describe your art as if you were describing it to someone who has never seen it:

This means a nuts-and bolts description of a typical piece. If there is no typical piece describe a work in each of the modes in which you work. This means material, color, size but also the special qualities that make it unique. Photographs alone don't suffice. A picture is only surface and cant itself disclose the true character of a work.
