|Must an artist reinvent him/herself everyday?
Reinvent no, continue to grow yes. Your art must always be yours.
It must have your soul, your touch. Every work I do will reflect itself upon the next work.
They are stepping stones to your soul. Just as you change as a person so does your art.
It should stay true to your dream and your outlook, but will constantly evolve.
I think reinvent is a bit much to ask on a daily basis.
Just stay faithful to your art and it will see you through.
It may not make you a millionaire but it should make you feel fulfilled.
It's normal to want to try something new and you should go for it!
Just don't try to be trendy.
Absolutely Not. Unless you just haven't found who you are yet.
Not necessarily. A lot of artists continue to use the same formula. If it works, it works. As long as the artist is still interested in creating.
I think that would be exhausting.
I think it's always good to be able to adapt to the changing times. However, I believe many art lovers buy from a particular artist because they like their style and palette. So, in effect, I feel it's good to both stay true to yourself while changing with the times.
In some aspects yes ...... others no.
If you work for pure pleasure then your work will define you. If you work to create marketable art, you must try to set the trends not just stay current with the trends. And of course, everything old is new again........ it is just tweaked, revisited and improved.
Impossible. You paint what you think is important or appeals to you. If that changes, so does the work.
I'm not sure if reinvention is the key, but I do think that you have to strive and reach out for something. You have to chase the elusive. You have to be better, to find that perfect something. And, in some ways, you have to accept that you will always be chasing something just out of reach. Sometimes you catch a glimpse, and it makes it worth it. If you can't look at your work and see how you can do it better next time, or different, or see where it just plain doesn't work, then you stagnate and you might as well become a typist. It's the chasing the impossible that makes us better artists.
I think that is the goal of most artists....always hoping to do a better painting with the next project. It is always within reach but at the same time elusive.
It's good idea to reinvent yourself often, but not everyday. Artist need to develop their skills by mastering what they do.
They shouldn't reinvent themselves, they should only keep their minds open to changes around them.
