Virus asked this question on the artcone forums: i really don’t respect his artwork much but im beginning to doubt my own ability to create something actually worth something.
haha i agree i really dont think its worth anything i really hate the fact that splattered paint can feed a man and buy him all these luxuries while some artists that spend time and effort on their art are left with nothing.
to correct your ignorance i did watch the movie and i think his ability to splatter paint is far from creation. also, my cousin has done exactly what pollack has yet gets no recognition and would be laughed at if ever submitted to anyone or anything.
im a sophmore in high school so i don’t have my own style yet. im trying to appreciate every aspect of art and every style yet jackson pollack doesn’t strike me as an artist, a creator. to me art is creation and perspective forgive me if im being a tad hypocrital but i see no perspective in dots and lines. i see no underlying meaning or story or anything trying to be communicated.
Wayne asked this question on the artcone forums: Hi
Hope I don’t cause offence by asking if anyone has had any success in selling thier artwork? At the moment we (my wife and I) do small watercolours and sell them to our local rural Cafe. They are general landscapes of the surrounding countryside and seem quite popular with tourists. We even reached the heights of £5 for one piece! Does anyone else sell thier work?

Lombi asked this question on the artcone forums: An eye surgeon may be required to remove tiny glass splinters from the Edvard Munch masterpieces The Scream and Madonna, the director of the Munch Museum in Oslo said Wednesday.
Museum director Lise Mjos described the damage to the paintings during proceedings at the Norwegian court of appeals.
Her testimony may determine whether the three men convicted in the theft of the paintings may be sentenced to pay repair costs.
The frames and glass covering the paintings were smashed and glass splinters have been embedded in them, especially in Madonna, which is painted on canvas, Mjos said. The Scream is painted on board.
“We will use an eye surgeon to remove the glass splinters from the two paintings. We want them removed to prevent them causing greater damage later,” Mjos told the court.
Outside the court, Mjos told Associated Press hiring an eye surgeon is just one of several specialized treatments under consideration.
An eye surgeon has the skills and equipment for the removal of glass fragments without damaging the surrounding area, she said.
The museum is demanding 1.6 million krone ($300,000 Cdn) for conservation and repair expenses and 1.3 million krone ($250,000 Cdn) in lost ticket sales through the court.
The paintings were recovered by police on Aug. 31, about two years after they were stolen by masked gunmen in a brazen daylight heist at the Munch Museum.
Both paintings were damaged because of the heavy-handed theft and two years of improper storage, Mjos said.
They suffered scrapes, holes, loose paint and moisture damage, as well as damage from glass fragments.
Museum staff are still assessing the damage and have not yet made a decision when to start the restoration work or how long it will take to complete, Mjos said.
There are four versions of The Scream, Norwegian painter Munch’s best-known work, depicting a waif-like figure with its mouth open in a scream.
The Scream and Madonna were part of Munch’s “Frieze of Life” series, in which sickness, death, anxiety and love are central themes.
