Session 5. Detailing // Enough is enough (is it?)
The problem is that when the shape of the imaged becomes more important than the effects, the image inevitably tends to hyperrealism, and in hyperrealism completeness is not provided.
Instead - "done," hyperrealist says - "I've had enough".
When, with the products of the first hyperrealists, the substantial began to return to the visual arts in a certain quality - different from classicism - a new quality, it became clear that hyperrealism in fact run into the problem of resolution or detailing.
Anyone who sees the products of hyperrealists alive may find that the product is not finished, but simply an author for some reason decided to stop working at this stage.
Hyperrealist can work on the details endlessly, if he consistently increases the resolution, because he is not looking for any equilibrium, but on the contrary he sets up very radically. His interest lays in the super-image of the substantial, which acts as the main effect.
In products of hyperrealists, form seems to speak only about itself and nothing else, it avoids interpretations deliberately.
The hyperrealist cannot finish his product in the physical sense, because at some stage of the growth of the resolving power the substantial simply disappears and a completely different quantum world begins, roughly speaking, the world of electrons begins…
But instead of fighting in this world, we say to ourselves: "Enough with this crap!" and sign the work. All authors do it, regardless of the direction of their search, because only ambitious people are engaged in visual arts, they have a claim to defeat death and oblivion with their products.
The problem is that this stage of product readiness is just the first step towards the goal ...
We already know that there are now many millions of such ambitious authors, and any epoch contains no more than 300 living artists who came to success.
Therefore, if you are engaged in art, then, most likely, you will be a very poor man, or just a poor man, if you are relatively lucky and you will periodically find buyers for your products. The problem is that the exhibition activity, sale and promotion of authors on the market is a separate and very specific work, and if you start doing it yourself, then there is no time left to paint or sculpt there.
The chances of crossing with people who can do this particular work are rather low for each of us. In particular, if we were not born in New York or London, but for example, in some Kyrgyzstan ... oh yes.
But, nevertheless, the world is becoming increasingly connected, global and permeable for information, and the ability of authors to loudly declare themselves is constantly growing, which means that the chances of being lost among these millions of free artists slowly, but surely, decrease for each of us, don't they?
