Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Okay, new subject, and I hope some folks respond to it! I just saw a thread on LinkedIn that asked if Jeff Koons is a plagiarist. So I looked up his artwork and don't have an answer to THAT question, but my goodness, I sure am wondering about my own paintings (yes, paintings). There's one on his page called "Hulk Elvis" that looks like a goofy self-portrait I did years ago. http://www.jeffkoons.com/artwork/hulk-elvis That's his. This is mine: http://artfaces.com/profile/sappington/ (the pink one). I never considered mine to be "art" but Koons' "Hulk Elvis" isn't far off from mine. Maybe I'm a great painter and had no clue??? LOL. Thought it might be a fun discussion to start.

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Ya, it looks similar alright but I like yours better and especially after seeing it's a self-portrait and reading the description. Very cute. Whymsical just like you are and with a big mouth that not only sings but burps. You may just have to do some more abstracts I say!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

LOL, I figure if a piece needs a title or description to be understood, it isn't necessarily good art (just my opinion). Admittedly, there's a LOT of art out there that I need a title or description to understand. Maybe it's my own shortcoming, who knows?

That abstract was a class assignment in a workshop I took. I really liked how it turned out. I'm truly shocked to see something people consider "art" that looks so much like it!!

I haven't looked at that self-portrait in years, and hadn't read the description - except for just now - in a very long time too. It's amazing how well that self-portrait, and the description, depict me! LOL Glad you like it!
