Joyce Hill

27 06 2011

Browsing through galleries and artists sights on the web, one thing has bothered me with collage artists. So many are involved in patterns, relief work, material etc. Layered on top of each other. Or set aside in some vaguely abstract fashion. That is supposed to do something. To you. And yet. I think it’s a lie. Passing something off as art. That is no more than anything that might have fallen on the floor during renovations of your bathroom. (I know I sound like a Philistine.) Except. Occasionally you find an artist like Joyce Hill. Who does use relief and other materials. But still includes representational pieces. And it works for me. I like her work. Its interesting. And makes you want to check out more of her stuff.

I realize not everyone has the talent of a great artist, but I think it is important to appreciate however someone expresses creativity. Love who you are.

There are artists (?) with huge reputations whose work does not merit their attention. That does not bother me. But to meet some of these people and find out how pompous and self-deluded they are on such meagre talent is… I get miffed.
