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.

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. This is not your typical self-help book. This is a book written by artists, for artists -— it's about what it feels like when artists sit down at their easel or keyboard, in their studio or performance space, trying to do the work they need to do.

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.
