|Is a work of art purchased, or is it better said, that it is the artist who is bought?
No one can buy me.
My art is just an expression about one part of me, but I am more complex then that.
People recognize themselves in my art. We connect in that part.
Both, but who cares. Just as long as the artist can move on to another work. Because the point is just the journey. An artist cannot live without the constant journey.
No - the art is purchased, The art is the product. Not the artist,
Should be the art, but never the artist!
the art is purchased, purchasing an artist sounds like you own him
I think it is both. Sometimes we love an artist so much and love their energy that you can get it through their art. The art has the artist energy in it.
The work. People are, in the end, unknowable.
For me artist and artwork cannot be separated.
Depends on the individual. I like the "said".
I think both are true. Artists with unusual technique or who have a strong identity through their artwork most often then not are favored personally by their patrons beyond their creative pieces.
Hopefully it isn't the artist who is bought. I'd really like to think it's a piece of their personality. I can admit there have been some not-so-nice people with great art. I'd like to think I'm just buying their art, in that case.
I would say the artist is an investment on our future artist. It is not bought or sold everything e pay into is an investment on its sustainability in our future.
A particular piece is purchased and with it goes a piece of the artist.
