It does not matter if the viewer understands the concept of the artist when he sees his art. Once the product has left the “workshop“, the artist can not control how the audience will perceive it. Different people have different understandings of the same things.
In recent years much has been written about minimalism in art, but I have not met anyone who has admitted that working in this direction. There are other similar types of art, defined as “primary structures”, “simplistic art”, “Les Miserables art”, “cool art” and “mini-art”. Again, none of my fellow artists would not reckon their creativity to some of these areas. From this I conclude that it is part of a secret language that critics communicates with each other by means of art magazines. Best of all mini-art – it is reminiscent of miniskirts and long-legged girl. This term must be related to very small works of art. Very good idea. Perhaps the exhibition “mini-art” can be sent on tour around the country in matchboxes. Or maybe the mini-artist – a man of very small stature, say, not more than one hundred and fifty centimeters. If so, a lot of good work in this direction can be found in the primary grades (first classes – primary structures).
If the artist brings his idea to the end and invests it in a visible form, then all are important stages of the creative process. The idea itself, even if it is not visualized, is a work of art to the same extent as the material implementation of the results. All intermediate stages – notes, sketches, drawings, failed works, models, sketches, thoughts, discussions – are of interest. Those that show the thought process of the artist, sometimes there are interesting outcome.
Determine what size should be a work very difficult. If the idea requires realization in three dimensions, it may seem that any size will do. The question is, what size would be most appropriate. If we make a huge thing, the sheer size would be so impressive that the idea is completely lost. Again, if you make the thing too small, it can be very small. The growth of the viewer may have something to do with the product, as well as the size of the space in which it is exposed. In its request the artist can place objects above or below the level of the viewer’s eyes. I think the thing should be large enough to give the viewer the information he needs to understand the product, and placed in such a way that promotes understanding (unless the idea is not related to noise and requires no difficulties when viewing).
