Purple Flowers

In the supreme court ruling of "ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION FOR THE VISUAL ARTS, INC. v. GOLDSMITH" the main losers and winners at the same time are all artists. The obvious win are the rights of the individual artists. The lose is the multi generational, multi cultural, multi gender dialogue that has existed forever between artists, between the arts. In these Technological times, with various virtual platforms and fake news, the need for the artist to protect their artwork and rights is more than obvious. The amount of scamming and copying is rampant. With all due respect, though, this limits the ability to freely react, quote and respond within the vast artistic dialogue. I previously, naively, hoped that the artists would keep to integrity when dealing with another artist works.

I personally, prefer to use my own photographs for my artwork. I believe in starting from ground zero in my works, keeping it totally personal. That doesn't mean that I don't believe in doing Homage to other artists.

I bring this subject up, due to my own personal technique of synthesizing and going back and forth in the various medias using the digital as one would use a paint brush.

"Purple Flowers" is an example of this technique. I photograph something. I'll edit it to an extreme, I'll run it through APPs and programs, print it up, paint some more then start the process all over again, as many times as I feel it necessary.

All the works on this blog are Printable and for sale. They are Barbara Adler originals. I love talking about my art and almost any subject related, so feel free to DM to converse and purchase my art, making it yours.
