ART AND FEAR DAVID BAYLES AND TED ORLAND PDF

This book is about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. The work we have not done seems more real in our minds than the pieces we have completed. Making the work you want to make means finding nourishment within the work itself. The disinterest of others doesn't reflect a gulf in vision. The overwhelming majority of your artwork is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars.

Bryan Wilson I believe people need to always ready themselves for the potential tests that lie ahead. As it relates to art, this is criticism. To me, the only fail …more I believe people need to always ready themselves for the potential tests that lie ahead.

To me, the only failure is not staying true to what you set out to do especially allowing yourself to be sidetracked by those that have no investment in you or your work. Why take a test without any conceptual knowledge? If the test presents itself there had to have been some sort of preparation. After all tests are only for assessing growth.

I reread the margin notes that I've written at various times. What I love about this book is that it uses art to talk about life. Specifically, it uses art and fear to talk about how our choice to have courage or not drives the degree of light you will manifest in your own life. The writers explore the human need for acceptance, fear of failure, communication sensibi I've read this book cover to cover four or five times.

The writers explore the human need for acceptance, fear of failure, communication sensibilities between your work and yourself versus your work and the outside world. In talking about other's "magic" in their work the authors write: "Their magic is theirs.

Your don't lack it. You don't need it. It has nothing to do with you. Find your own magic. Risk it. Earn it. Everything I read in this book could also apply to the art of relationship. The art of love. It's specific to art,yet universal. It's an easy read, barely over a hundred pages. Carry it in your backpack, put it in your purse, or on the back of your toilet. Read it. Return to it. Make your life your art. It's that simple and profound.

It's a bit frustrating to read, the section on art and science was a disaster, perhaps demonstrating the authors complete lack of understanding of science. The two authors refer to "art" in such a flimsy pretext that they not only fail to define it, they change the implied definition to suit whatever point is being made but the It starts out strong, very strong, and then falls apart in a semantic entanglement of mixed metaphors and pseudo philosophy that spends a lot of words saying very little.

The two authors refer to "art" in such a flimsy pretext that they not only fail to define it, they change the implied definition to suit whatever point is being made but then mix the definitions in chains of clumsy logic sometimes to the fine art business, other times to any creative expression, other times to a limited set of work that is non-reproducible. They go further into neologic territory and leave the word "art" in an unusable state that lacks any coherent meaning.

For an artist, the book is captivating in parts, especially in the beginning as it concerns execution and vision, and a discussion of common fears in the art making process -- excellent insights.

By the end of the book, you'll likely be entirely confused and realize "there's no definition of art", and it's the artists and art community's own fault. Tirelessly extolling "what is" and "what is not" art seems to have ruined the word in our vocabulary Anyway, it's a quick read and if you enjoy pseudo intellectual banter that lacks meaningful content then you might enjoy more of it than I View all 5 comments.

It addresses issues like perfectionism, creative blocks, and motivation. Here are some of my favorite quotes from it: In large measure becoming an artist consists of learning to accept yourself, which makes your work personal, and in following your own voice, which makes your work distinctive.

If ninety-eight percent of our medical students were no longer practicing medicine five years after graduation, there would be a Senate investigation, yet that proportion of art majors are routinely consigned to an early professional death.

What separates artists from ex-artists is that those who challenge their fears, continue; those who don't, quit. Tolerance for uncertainty is the prerequisite to succeeding. The risk is fearsome: in making your real work you hand the audience the power to deny the understanding you seek; you hand them the power to say, "you're not like us; you're weird; you're crazy. Both are like caffeine to energize your artistic career, and which you choose is really a matter of taste. View 2 comments.

Apr 06, Carol rated it really liked it Shelves: making-art. This book is about the challenges in making, or not making, art. Making art is difficult. Many times artists will stop making art and then feel guilty about not returning.

The is what the author says-- "Lack of confidence and self doubt -- I'm not an artist-- I'm a phony; other people are better than I am; I've never had a real exhibit; I'm no good. Or maybe fear about what others say after looking at your work. Basically the only work really worth doing-- the only work you can do convincin This book is about the challenges in making, or not making, art.

Basically the only work really worth doing-- the only work you can do convincingly -- is the work that focuses on the things you care about. The individual recipe any artist finds for proceeding belongs to that artist alone-- it's non-transferable and no of little use to others.

Book Review for "Art & Fear"

Pinpointing fear as the main reason we stand in our own way as artists, the first half of this book is pretty useful. Your self-doubt, your anxiety, your fear of unoriginality, your particular world-view: all essential. The second half of the book tries to put these fears into the context of the world, and identify real-world barriers i. Overall, not mind-blowing, but worth a look, even if you only skim-read the second half and check back in to the final chapter. Book Reviews. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Art and Fear - by David Bayles and Ted Orland

Ordinary art. Ordinary art means something like: all art not made by Mozart. After all, art is rarely made by Mozart-like people; essentially—statistically speaking—there aren't any people like that. Geniuses get made once-a-century or so, yet good art gets made all the time, so to equate the making of art with the workings of genius removes this intimately human activity to a strangely unreachable and unknowable place. For all practical purposes making art can be examined in great detail without ever getting entangled in the very remote problems of genius. The book's co-authors, David Bayles and Ted Orland, are themselves both working artists, grappling daily with the problems of making art in the real world. Their insights and observations, drawn from personal experience, provide an incisive view into the world of art as it is expeienced by artmakers themselves.
