This morning I was feeling very de-motivated so at the suggestion of some friends I decided to search youtube for some art documentaries to lose myself in. I came across the NOVA Documentary on New Art and the Young Artists behind it. Although this documentary is from 2010 a lot of what the artists said can still be relevant today. The Art world is a fast paced business and this is something that is touched upon in the documentary.
One thing within the documentary that really made me think is how the artists engage with their audience and how they show this through their work. There were some artists who decided not to sign work with their name. They talk about doing this so the work is not limited to an audience and the work is not individualistic. I found this a very interesting concept and something that I want to look into further.
The work of Artist Rebecca Ward who speaks in the documentary about her practice really engaged me because of how she associates material with aspects of her childhood and ways of seeing. Her work as a real structural quality to it playing on the idea of scale and colour.
