I've got a suggestion for the Feb competition. What about a theme focusing on the Jedi?

It could be, Obi Wan.

It's a bit more abstract and less substantial - on a physical level - than flesh and blood Jedi, but might be interesting to show the power of the force.

I find it interesting that there's been so much talk about "rules" in regards to art. Particularly when some of the greatest art movements (and single artists) have created their styles and careers out of breaking those established rules.

Dadaism is a perfect example of breaking rules. Admittedly a urinal may technically have a focal point, it wasn't "art" until Duchamp stuck it in a gallery.

Even Rembrant was a rule-breaker. He defied the flemmish artistic tradition by completely shaking up the generally accepted compostition of portraiture, The Night Watch is a textbook example of this.

Finally, context has alot to do with whether or not people with accept something as "art." I already touched on this point by mentioning The Urinal, however, I think that a better example of this is Piero Manzoni's work, in particular The Artist's Merde which is literally his crap in cans which he sold for the same price as gold. Not my cup of tea personally, but The Tate Gallery in London bought it, so who am I to say.

Art and aesthetics are very closely intertwined, but I believe that they are not exclusive. Good technique is not the only thing that makes an artist in my opinion.

Also, I've no idea about Jedi's and the force, and I always get my mitochlorian muddled up with my mitochondria. So perhaps this will be a good excuse to finally sit down and watch those Star Wars movies

That's very true Himmler - I agree.

Incidentally, what do you make of the Manzoni "can of crap?" Is it art to you?

I'm terrible at timing myself for these competitions, I'm still busy inking and fiddling on a picture that I initially started for the December "Lurk" contest... Oh well, I guess it'll just be going onto good ol' Devart.
