Thoughts On Feelimn

I’m not center of Feelimn online gallery. I’m not an important part. Feelimn don’t exist without artists and their artworks. No one seems to be interested in Feelimn now. Artists might be truly busy to find job and money. Feelimn is online gallery where artists upload their artworks, and patrons support their art making monetarily. I created it for the artists. They don’t have to pay money to upload their artworks. I started this idea because I loved to feel emotions like everyone does. As I write down the emotional scenes that artists can refer to, I’m happy that I can be a center in my blog with my writings.

But I began to think I may be wrong. I’m not professional art dealer. I don’t know how artists think of online gallery. Artists would have their own reason to draw and paint. They need to earn money by selling their artworks. No one would want to draw for others for free. If I’m an artists, would I want to draw someone else’s world for him? I’m not sure. I don’t have money to commission them to draw what I want. My writings are abstract and specific at the same time. Who should artists draw from that situation? I think I’m requesting too much.

I love to write emotional moments and scenes. It is like short stories. I get out of my reality and go into imaginary situations. I should focus on people and situation to describe small details. I love to catch and write it down. It is sometimes personal or general, and sometimes it is my fantasy of wishes. Or it is regret and jealousy. I get the ideas from many things. As I make scene, I like to substitute girl in the situation wishing to attract her into my life. Also I like seeing the happenings such as behaviors, gestures, talking, looking, and facial expressions. After all, the facial expression is the key which is derived from powerful emotion. The situation that people would nod their heads because they get to understand the emotion itself. I don’t have many friends, so I don’t interact with people well. People could say that I have a problem in making relationship with them. So it might be the reason why I like to write these emotional moments which I can rarely find in real life.

As I keep writing and try harder, I’ve come to think of Feelimn more than before. I kind of lose the purpose or identity of why I do this since there are no artists who are willing to upload artworks in Feelimn. There are endless moments. I have a passion. But I’m not sure where I’m going. I won’t give up on writing. I think it will be just less frequent. I genuinely appreciate everyone who reads my posts. Thank you.

You Decide the Price of Artist’s Artworks

Why is art so expensive? Who decide the price? Art dealers? Gallery owners? Or Artists themselves? When we talk about artistic value, one piece of art could mean a lot to someone and nothing to others. The price of artworks not only get affected by artist’s reputation, but also size, condition, and prices of similar pieces. Importantly, supply and demand strictly apply in pricing. If the artists no longer live, value of scarcity rise higher. Buying art is now considered as an investment, instead of true passion for the art. Many physical galleries are closing because they can’t keep the finances sustainable. On the other hand, rich people increase the prices of artworks, pushing up few big galleries and few big auction houses. With this situation being made, young and potential artists do not get many opportunities to be seen.

Art industry has become a game only for rich people. I believe that artworks and professional artists should be valued with money. But it doesn’t have to be by buyers. Many growing artists want to showcase their artworks to reach out few buyers. However, if numerous number of patrons can build the value of artists’ price together, it will be a big impact that change art industry. What artworks deserve to be the highest price? The artworks containing real value will be newly recognized to the world. Artists can exhibit their artworks in Feelimn online gallery, and patrons can give patronages to the artworks. Find artworks that you love in each emotion categories. Feel the artworks artists captured in their adventures.

Hunter

What do you hunt? Where are your eyes headed? Catching emotional moments is what hunters do in Feelimn. For example, you can find frustrated face of pitcher who is looking at the ball flying to home-run fence. He is more worried when it is more important game. Or when you get into fight with your lover, you can find desperate anger or fear in his/her face. These won’t go away from your memory quickly that could hurt you for a period of time.

I got the impression that painter is a hunter, from famous painting “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer. People will receive different feeling from it, but I would like to tell you my thoughts. A girl on the painting turned around to look at where she heard familiar and warm voice which is from painter. I believe this facial expression is remembered and painted by Johannes Vermeer. He caught the moment that contain emotion. It provokes vivid imagination that will provide source for our dream. I believe we get inspiration consciously or unconsciously in pursuing our own goal in reality. Only feelings leave in our memory whether it’s from past or dream at night. Recognizing feeling itself would give direction as we continue on living our world. Paintings based on emotional moments are being created by hunters. Would you like to join on these hunters adventure in Feelimn online gallery?
