It has been said that contemporary art is about the statement or meaning of the art and not about the artist’s process and technique to create it.
I have also heard that artists’ need to be cautious about being seduced by their medium. This means that working with any one medium becomes more important than what the art is suppose to be about. That you are more interested to see what you can do with the medium.
Is it therefore fair to say that art process demonstrations given at a gallery demean the meaning of the art? Furthermore does it reduce the art to technique which takes attention from the idea and focus it squarely on the how-to?
I would really like to know what your thoughts on this are. All comments are welcome.
