Even though my new teacher in drawing (with figure) thinks that "all figurative art and perspectives have no reasons to exist nowadays. It's supposed to be over". This is normal we are in France, where they think the profound knowledge of drawing is of no use. I like figurative art and I think it should live along with the abstract art. There is no reason they shouldn't.
Figurative art focuses more on what surrounds us, while the abstract art expresses the artist mostly. Even if he might be in connection with what he's watching, it's more "his art and himself" he ends up showing. Rather that telling things about others or about his environment he talks about himself. Of course this is just one idea of it and the borders and lines are thin between the two.
I like abstract art too, just believe they can live side by side.
Well, for me there are still things to discover in figurative art... I might go abstract after that.
Now, 10th of october, after another session with my new teacher... I'm already convinced that his teaching will modify my way of drawing. Part of what he says I've experienced already... I just have to use it in another way. But I still believe it's a little silly to say that figurative expression, perspectives and shadow indications are not of this era. I'm sure all is not said about those points either. Everything hasn't been told in all ways possible yet! That's nonsense. It has just been a hundred years, a little more, since art started it's "revolution". So, let's invent new stuff!! Well, I let you all help me to do so, as my evolution might be a little slow.
