HOT off the press:
From Rod Summers (Netherlands) – WebCam Mona Lisa - Rod’s gallerist was happy, I was happy – win win
From RCBz (USA) – Mona (Medi-lert) lisa. RCBz also sent me a succinct note on the fair use of images (See below)
The palpable reasons from the image – tongue in cheek perhaps, but a timely reminder of our frailness:
From Alicia Starr (USA) – the mystery deepens as always with Alicia
From Nancy Bell Scott (USA) – the card behind the matchbox has a note – Before I went Abstract !
Back to RCBz’s note on image appropriation:
He makes mention of the Richard Prince case (which I was not familiar with) which "has brought fair use of images back into the news".
The conclusion to his thoughts is:
"Once you have incorporated a borrowed piece," "your work must in some way comment on, relate to the historical context of, or critically refer back to the original works"" In other words, your work enhances the artistic content of the borrowed piece rather than the borrowed piece infusing your work with artistic merit… the borrowed piece, in and of itself, should not be the driving force of the new piece".
You’re making me think – as usual.
