Honest work

honest-work

Work from the “Paradiso” show, London.

Artists have a responsibility to engage initially with the general public before producing work aimed at the attentions of the art critical establishment. Artwork produced for the insular world of art academe will rarely stand the test of time despite perhaps achieving initial high praise. When the artist has gone and the fashions have changed all that will be left is the work. The only constant will be an audience that has a minimum of actual lived reference to the times the work was created in. Work made for a public audience is honest work and honest work is the best the artist can hope to be remembered for.
