b craw's recent activity

  • One might assume that the depth of information you are desiring would be covered in a full review. Let us wait and evaluate a full range of concerns at that point.

    Something in your tone suggests...

  • It is not a cult! It is a self-help group. Disregard the cryptic decorations.

  • Now, your last question might be a fair bit more stimulating to me. To think that there is a clear definition of "professional photographer" is naive, as I suspect you probably agree. In so far as...

  • The tenor of the original post is understandable, particularly given the strange vitriol that can surface in some forms of criticism. But barring the windows in this way, proclaiming everything is...

  • Boss:

    You state: "I suppose this question is similar to that posed by some literary theorists who emphasize the importance of the reader's interpretation over the intent of the author."

    I believe...

  • To come full circle, I couldn't dream of determining the artistic value of the producer of image #7. I can only comment on some degree of novelty in its form and that that quality is intriguing to...

  • Side note: I have no idea why "were" automatically corrects to become "we're" - argh!

    Essentially an evaluation of formal elements may be an inadequate basis for evaluation of merit or value in art, unless the artist intends content to be exclusively formal. In the case of...

  • Boss:

    You state: "I like the novels of Clive James (an Australian/British comedic novelist/essayist/poet). I can...

  • I find a certain elegance in those who are thrifty.

  • HowaboutRAW:

    I might just put that last line on my tombstone.

    "Right, I didn't think you thought it an ironical use of soft porn."

  • Such is the unfortunate reality in the Republic of Fotografia: the Formalites have no love for the Conceptuals; the Photojournalites no love for the Aesthetes (but some for athletes); somewhere on...

  • Structurally minimal. Absent metaphor, or metaphor for absence.

    It is not my favorite, but right up there.

  • (Cont.)

    ...This process of coming to some reasonably stable consensus about the value of such work is a product of time, a long arc of scrutiny, academic and otherwise. And very much a part of...

  • Boss:

    We're we to flesh out a dialog about assessing the relative merits of artworks, there would be points of agreement and disagreement between us, I imagine. As an instructor of art, I am...

  • Papa:

    I enjoyed that anecdote. A lot.

  • HaR and Samuel;

    No. I did not mean to suggest that irony, such as in Sherman's work, is in this piece.

    Samuel, as you probably know Sherman has a long and prolific career with many separate...

  • Boss:

    Sounds like you have it all figured out.

    However, whether such activity strikes you "pretending", assessing the full merit of a work of art is a bit more complicated than arriving at...
