It’s an honor to be included in this beautiful first preview for the finalists, in “Get Art Museum” / Taipei / Taiwan. Here is the both pieces I’ve contributed: SUMMER EYES and NYHAVN at SUNSET. ( 2th, 3th and 4th image)
The final art show will be the huge annual exhibition named Art Revolution Taipei (A.R.T.) which is one of Asia’s top international art contests.
The following is the information regarding the art show Art Revolution Taipei: HERE
I was very excited to find out how the selection was made by a principal member of the evaluation committee Mr Lee Soon Dong, the Art Director and great Artist Professor.
This is a simple and, yet, very important math.
The last thing people going to an art fair want to see is a show full of unattractive works. They leave quickly without any hesitation. Some people would like to think that this is a matter of subjective taste and preference, but an art fair is usually organized for the 90% of people who know little about art to come to visit and appreciate, and they are all potential collectors. If the first piece of artwork collected by a new collector happens to be your work, congratulations, then, because next time when this new collector is thinking about making a purchase again, the first name popping up in his/her mind would be yours!
We are planning to exhibit 1200 pieces of artwork at the Art Revolution Taipei 2011. If one would spend 20 seconds watching each and every one of the 1200 works, it would then take him/her seven hours to finish, plus one hour for a break, that’s exactly how long the show is open every day – – eight hours.
If one can’t finish in one day, that’s even better. Because an art fair that attracts people to come back and visit twice without thinking about leaving is definitely a good exhibition!
So artist, your responsibility really is…..To create an artwork that would catch the viewer’s attention for 20 seconds!
