Between Cute-ism and Skilled-ism

.......................

i went to a place yesterday, a place i was looking forward to go to, hoping to see inspiring works....
but all i could see,
is social-ism and
cute-ism without depth...
..........

feeling dissapointed,
i went to another floor where a pop art gallery is situated
and there were many paintings that i was attracted to
the kind that i wish i could do.

as i browse along the gallery's wall, i noticed a few familiar modern paintings
and asked the gallery owner if these are original works
he told me that they are reproductions...

why do these artists choose to reproduce other artists' works?
look at their skills. there are 'educated' strokes there...
they are world apart from those that i saw at the art and craft fair.
they could easily paint something beautiful of their own with such skills.

again, i walked out of the gallery, dissapointed...and disturbed...

how then, could i, an 'uneducated' artist wannabe (aging as well), make it in the world of 'cute-ism' and 'popular-ism' and 'fashion-ism', when even skillfull artists makes a living by becoming 'copy' artists...

wasting paint





i'm such a messed up person...the one with the red thingy thing was actually a big mistake but i couldn't just waste the whole MDF board so i just continued with it and wasted a few more hours of my life...
