Something I have been thinking about for a while is the potential idea for art criticism to play a future role in this site. This art scene is filled with amazing artwork and never ceases to impress. The one thing it is lacking though is criticism from within the scene. Many critics and artists have said before that inner criticism needs to exist for the outer areas to take notice. So since I am also an art history major, with specific emphasis on this current stream of art, it seems fitting I should start adding critiques to the posts.
Now the critiques will not be bashing the works, but talking about the works/events while looking at the artists previous works, how the art relates to us, technical aspects and so on. Now this scene has been breaking new ground for some time, so I am not going to stick to formal older styles of criticism. Art criticism needs to change just as the ideas of art are changing. Hopefully this will all be taken with open arms, but I imagine there will be speed bumps. I have rarely seen critiques be welcomed happily, but I figure with a site called “Creep” Machine maybe it’s about time to live up to the name.
There is a poll for this on the right side of the site, vote and let me know what you think.
