[CR] Orbiter III - original painting

in artisteem •  4 months ago

Artwork ImageThis painting was a commission based on the small version of Orbiter which I've painted a year before this.

Orbiter III, 2016

Acrylic on canvas, 120 x 100 cm / 47.24 x 39.37 inch, private collection / Austria

After a (warm) welcome here on Artisteem I was told I have to elaborate/explain/justify my artwork. Well, I'm not elaborating/explaining/justifying my artwork because I believe art is a language by itself and it doesn't need to be elaborated/explained/justified, especially not by the artist himself. However, I'm open to questions and suggestions and I'll happily respond to these in the comment section.

Anyway, I have a suggestion for the Artisteem team: As far as I understand the functionality of this, I can only post one image. Even if I edit my post on Steemit and add more images they don't show up here, I only see text fragments (see below). Now I believe it does make sense to post more than one image of an artwork, like close ups, the process, additional sketches, photos of the artwork in the gallery or studio... And what about sculptures? For a presentation of a sculpture multiple images are essential.

So instead to force artists to "explain" give us the possibility to post more material!

Cheers!

Danke Vesna!!!

I remember seeing this work before at a curie upvoted post? Looks cool.

I believe art is a language by itself and it doesn't need to be elaborated/explained/justified, especially not by the artist himself.

We encourage artist to explain their process for different reasons. Most of the time, it's a screening method to uncover a plagiarist pretending to be one. This platform has witnessed several serial plagiarists so we added those to the guidelines. If the author is indeed the artist, explaining their work will not be a problem unless it's not really their work to begin with.

As far as I understand the functionality of this, I can only post one image. Even if I edit my post on Steemit and add more images they don't show up here, I only see text fragments (see below).

The original web design was to make the platform look like a gallery so limiting it only to one image per submission made sense. But after some runs on the real world, it was clear that process shots helped establish credibility. We don't mandate people to produce process shots but it saves us the time to bother asking for some if new faces in the community started posting questionable work. The last thing we want is to reward fakers.

The platform renewal will be coming this December and a new interface will be up. I personally haven't seen the new functional options but it was already suggested to have the option to include more photos for submission. For now, I just edit my process shots on the steemit frontend and then copy paste the texts/codes.

Thanks @adamada for your response. I don't mind to edit my posts in the Steemit interface but it would be great if the changes were displayed correctly in Artisteem!

What a pleasure to know that you have taken our suggestions and created an exceptional post. The work you share is precious, thank you for bringing quality to the Artisteem platform.

This one is freakinly cool! Details are also lit! Is this a digital painting? It is really wild

Thanks @ligarayk! It's painted in acrylics on canvas after a digital reference.

Very H.R. Giger. I dig it.

Any chance of getting it in print? No other Orbiter, but this one?
