What are the current trends in art? What do you see in the magazines or galleries or homes that seems to share a common thread? An artist friend of mine, Vickie Martin, suggested that green art is all the rage. Green is trending throughout all the world right now, as an influence over all phases of our work, home, our lives....but is it just a passing fad or fancy?will it all be forgotten when the energy crisis subsides for a while? Does art really have much to do with our carbon footprint?I am interested in hearing what other artists, and design professionals think about what is trending in art? I belive that the cutting edge that is portrayed for example on ART 21 hasn't really made it down ot the trending level. Trendy is sometimes considered a perjorative term, however i find the trending topics on twitter pretty fascinating.So let me hear from the blogosphere about trending art. I guess this could be categories, styles, subject matter, size, medium, or just about anything.
Throughout recorded history, man has explored the connections between his perceived world of events, emotions and environment. He has utilized music, art and literature as a voice of expression. The beauty and rhythms of these connections seem to synchronize and play out over time to form a significant socio-cultural record. My work is a record of the connections and relationships that I have discovered within my own perceived world, through music, art and literature. This process may start on a somewhat literal level but it soon evolves into new discoveries and interpretations unbounded by conventional time. My marks and imagery form the rhythm of this dialogue.
