|Is a work of art purchased, or is it better said, that it is the artist who is bought?
I sell my artwork. I do not feel bought-- that thought never occurred to me.
No. No one can buy what is in me. They only have but the inspiration created.
It depends on what level the artist is in. Sometimes one sometime the other.
I think the art is purchased not the artist.
I guess it depends on who is buying it. Some buy for the artists name, but some buy because they love the art itself. Who's the wiser? I think the one who buys it because they love it.
Every time you buy a piece of orginal art, you buy a piece of the artist.
When the artwork is purchased to match the sofa, then the art piece is what is purchased.
But when the buyer sees beyond the paint and canvas and into the emotions, memories and heart of the artist...then the collector has purchased a bit of the artist.
Purchased,bought hmm either is okay with me. I am not above or below my fans I am right their beside them!
Depends from whos point of view, and how important the artist is. A buyer will no doubt say they've bought the artist. But the artist wont say they've sold themselves.
I think the artist is bought if he blatantly panders or accepts commissions.
A work of art is purchased, an artist is not bought. Even if an artist does commission work he brings his own views, experiences and interpretations to the work.
That's a tricky question too.
I'm only an "emerging" artist so I don't think anyone would ever buy a piece of my work for the name which is attached to it (as it holds no kind of cultural currency).
...So hopefully, anyone who buys my work is doing so because they love something about it... and not to possess "an Iris Priest"....
But if you bought a piece by one of the YBAs, for example, that work has such a weighted identity and is so synonymous with its producer, then you probably would be "buying a Damien Hirst/ Jenny Saville" etc.
When you start out, I believe it is really the work that reaches out to people...as you develop, I think it may be a bit of both.
I think it is a bit of both. A good piece of art is good not just because of technique or color, but because the artist has somehow conveyed part of her own spirit or insight in a piece.
It's certainly a 'part' of the artist taken away in a painting, print or in a sculpture when a piece of art is sold. Like a handprint - a physical impression of the artist's existence, and a little piece of their mind or soul at the moment of the work's creation.
