Most of all I was very curious to meet the fourteen contestants. A little while had passed since I had seen them amongst nearly 1,200 artists for a very brief moment at the time of the initial castings in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. First I saw the self-portraits they had prepared for the occasion, and then I saw them appear all at once while I was waiting to welcome them with China at the "world famous" Brooklyn Museum of Art. A good overall energy was instantly palpable.
I was happy to see that the Sucklord had made it into the final fourteen. I suffer acutely from the collecting disease, and one of the many areas I am interested in is toy art. I had come across his work some time back and had acquired some of his pieces. I also have had some of his pieces under my gavel. I am particularly fond of his Darth Vader acting as a DJ at the turntables with a pile of miniature vinyls at his feet. I admire him for getting out of his comfort zone and participating in this competition where he clearly will have to demonstrate some versatility if he wants to succeed. He was in the bottom three of this first challenge, but I actually do like the work he had done for it, even though it is a fairly literal transformation of a very "schlocky" two dimensional work to an equally "schlocky" three dimensional work.
love the show!!!!! Could not stop watching the first season shows all in one day! I'm an artist. How can I get on the show?
I am a judge...
The show makes commercials tolerable. Hopefully, the artists will keep to true form and do not develop into disgraceful characters within the show.
Truthfully, I would love to showcase my skills on the show but am comfortable and confident that I will make an impact on significant critiques elsewhere.
Truly, I am a skilled artist with real passion for impacting those around me in all mediums life has offered me. Art school was explored after winning top price in scholarship money.
However, I felt that the portfolio itself was not as significant as the connection I had to the judges on the panel. Perhaps I was wrong then, but still I left art school behind as I knew it would feel tainted until I could find my way back on my own. I then committed myself to eighteen months at sea in the Persian Gulf.
Back now, I am in school studying criminal justice, philosophy and logic with an interest in law school but my passion is still in art. If the degree or the means to travel elsewhere were available, I would be studying art today.
The challenge to make an impact on any significant figure is always important.
