Charleston On My Mind- oil on primed paper

June 28, 2015

I just finished reading Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process from http://www.communityarts.net

1. Critical response unlike a basic critique, is a valuable tool, sometimes giving the artists comfortable feedback, or a map for the artist to look closer at premises underlying the work. We need to question our work and hear more than positive comments. 

1. Here is my painting of an accidental encounter.

2. A facilitator is necessary in hosting a critique to keep the conversation flowing and moving in a positive direction and to keep people on track. A facilitator gives the set-up for the artist to give affirmation that his or her work is important. It’s important to both the artist and the person (or group of persons) who critique it. It’s important to bring something to the table, a positive comment if you are a facilitator.

Questions: You Might Ask Yourself?

1. Why is it that sometimes the audience or people looking at your work get into a discussion about the content of your work (and it may not relate to the piece)? 

2. Concerning affirmation, why is it important that my work has meaning to others, when in fact, the only person I need to please is myself? 

Suggestions-

When facilitating a critique, it is imperative to ask a question  in a way that makes it neutral. Positive feedback will generate a healthy discussion. Action words, i.e. “it was surprising to see, or compelling to see, or touching to see” opens discourse effectively. I often go with “It was restful to see…” as an opening to a remark.

Studio Visits: If you land upon my blog and artwork your comments are welcome. This is a friendly space for observations or comments.

Suggestions: those are welcome as well. I post various paintings (some are in progress, some are finished).
