Question: What makes (or why are) a few painters seemingly great
Answer: A catch 22 of at least two, major, interconnected factors
from the genre of painting in the discourse or socio-cultural practice
of Fine or Visual Art.
(1) They experience (are conscious of, perceive, come across) new
universes ( life worlds, realities and worlds) to explore, experiment with,
depict, express, re/present and communicate.’
2) They devise and/or come across new, often unique techniques, ways,
media, perception, understanding, insights to deal with such phenomena.
Number 1 affects number 2 and vice versa, in seemingly endless,
circular movements. This leads to to the creation of an infinity of new
and/or a development or transformation of existing media, techniques,
insights and ‘subjects’.
