Episode 30 Fan Mail Friday question comes from Kimmy and New Orleans, Louisiana Kimmie writes to me and says "I have been such a fan of reality TV and of course I have been such a fan of your artwork I ever wonder if you would ever be on a reality TV show? A few years ago there was a reality show called “A work of art, the next great artist". And I thought you would be terrific as one of the artists with all your colors and style. Have you ever thought to apply to that show?" Thank you Kimmie for writing to me and for the nice complement. It's so funny that you should ask this question because this question was brought up in a conversation I had with a couple of other artist a few days ago. I have seen that show that you mention, a work of art, the next great artist… and I thought I would give it a whirl as far as checking it out to see what it was all about. I don't watch a whole a lot of reality TV, in fact I'm not a fan of the bachelor, bachelorette, I don't watch Survivor anymore however I do like the Amazing Race. I also like Home and Garden TV (HGTV) and the Food Channel and really enjoy the competitions they have on there. Now, I will say first of all that I am truly thankful that you have written man and I am so flattered that you thought that I would be a good contestant on that show. When the show came out, I watched it to see what the buzz was about, I had envisioned that this show would have been a lot more exciting and a lot more interesting. In fact and I must include a disclaimer here that I am not a hater, I truly believe that there is art out there for everyone, however. I will say for the record that this show was not what I had imagined and I personally feel that it could have done much better without all the "high art snootiness.” There I said it, yes. I think the show was over-snooty (is that is even a word!). I will admit that I don't understand a lot of that over intellectual over thought out artwork stuff that goes on.. I will admit that I don't understand a lot of that over intellectual, over thought artwork stuff that goes on. I don't understand big black campuses were the one dot in the middle of it and I don't understand pieces of thread that are nailed to a 10' x 10' green painted reclaimed wood as being anything interesting. That's just me, I'm not a hater, it just does not appeal to me (Not everyone likes frozen peas at the grocery store, but there is marked for it). I'm not a fan of that kind of work, I like work that has a lot of visuals to it, I am a huge fan of lowbrow art and the surrealism, I'm a big fan of pop art, and I'm a huge fan of mixed media art work and collage. I think that if I was on that show the way that it was produced with all the fancy art curators and gallery owners that I would've ended up blasting everyone out of the room. I would have probably challenged the thought process, I think I would've pushed the limits and got probably kicked off the show. I'm not saying I'm not a team player but I'm saying that I found the exercises and tasks to have been ridiculous. The way I create, and the way I think would've probably put everyone over the edge and I believe that my art would have given the "powers that be” a stroke. If ever given the opportunity to create a show like this I would do it in a more lighthearted way, something that would've really allowed everyone to create based on their true talents, something like the food competition that they have and made it faster paced and would've allowed a lot mSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/rockstarmentor)
Fan Mail Friday Episode 028 Renee from Aspen Colorado writes in and that she recently saw a wonderful art documentary on Alexander Calder. She loves our podcast, She asks me what artistic movies are my favorite and if I have any and if I would share those? Thank you Renee for this for sharing this and I love this question! I have seen that Alexander Calder biography a number of years ago and it is truly spectacular I am a fan of his work and have been inspired by his talents as well. Well the answer to the question is a big giant yes, yes I do get inspired by biographies, documentaries, and films that feature artists and their journey through their life is an artist. Whether the movie is fiction, factual, inspirational or biographical I always learn something from these individuals that have pave the way for other artists in history. I am also inspired by production companies like Pixar, Disney, Lucas films etc. because those stories and journeys, trials triumphs and failures have all resulted in a unique art form that everyone of all ages can truly appreciate. There are a handful of films that I have found that feature artists and the story of their life and their work that has inspired me in one way shape or form. Alrighty… in not in any particular order I'm going to start off with films that just come right to my mind that I have really enjoyed, These are films about the artist themselves or representation of an artist: 1.) The Girl with the Pearl Earring 2.) Frida the story of Frida Kahlo 3.) The Thomas Crown Affair 4.) Pollick about Jackson Pollock 5.) Bigeyes about Margaret Keane 6.) Basquiat 7.) Midnight in Paris, 8.) Women in Gold (not Women in Red as I said in the podcast) …. and there are probably another 25 or so movies I could talk about.... Then there some movies that were off the beaten path that I'm not sure sure if they were big box office hits, but these are ones that come to mind and definitely worth a watch: 1.) Art School Confidential 2.) Chocolat 3.) June Bug 4.) The Best Offer Now I know perhaps some of you will be writing to me saying "what about this movie and what about that movie", I try to answer all these questions as fresh as they come in and as swiftly and spontaneous as I can. I want to be able to answer these questions so that they are as organic as possible unless it's something I truly have to research this is the format of this Fan Mail Friday is to address questions as they would as a spontaneous response based on if we were sitting around the table talking. If I have more time this week I will certainly delve into other movies, but I just wanted to address some that off the top of my head I have seen, I have been inspired by them most of them I would say I've watched more than 3 or 4 times …. and if I'm channel surfing and I see one of these movies or other artistic movies I will stop and watch it no matter what seeing the movie is in. Ha ha! Then there are the biographies, there are far too many biographies that I could mention right now that are awesome, I believe if you check on YouTube or even Google most famous artist you will find a biography or Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/rockstarmentor)
