Integrity and Loyalty in our Artwork

The past three weeks I discussed in my blogs perfection, sincerity and generosity. All three elements make for responsibility. Responsibility to ourselves as artist, to be true and loyal to ourselves in our storytelling so our message comes across sincere. Responsibility allows to develop one’s self-confidence and belief in oneself and art. Responsibility shoe’s away the imposter syndrome.

Do not confuse “responsibility” with “control”. Control seizes the desired dialogue between the spectator and the piece of art. As an artist, I have responsibility to capture the spectator’s attention, being aware that I have no control, place or desire of the spectators’ feelings or thoughts regarding the artwork.

As a human being, as an artist, I wish to come across credible, reliable and sincere. No time for phony. We are responsible for one another. We can make life heaven or hell, that is up to us. My responsibility is to tell a visual story as well as I can, to be open and inviting for dialogue and interpretation so others may enjoy and identify, finding their own place within that given piece of artwork.

When purchasing an artwork, be responsible. The criteria for purchasing an artwork must first and foremost be sincerity. Does the piece of art relate to you? Do you identify with it? Does the story being told, touch you? Does it intrigue you? Will you continue to be intrigued by it? The financial side of the artwork, revenue it may or may not provide in the future, should be at the bottom of these criteria.
