What does Art mean to you?

Posted in : Uncategorised on by : Brendan Walsh Comments:

As I write my blog it crossed my mind I know what art means to me but I really don’t know what it .mean to you , YOU the valued reader? I will address that question in a while. Firstly my name is Brendan and I am an artist blacksmith

working in the republic of Ireland . My website is ‘brendansforge.com’  I have spent my working life in the pursue  of something that it is difficult to describe .What I do know with certain is that I do what I do because I need and must do    it . I creates items that I consider pleasant to the eye .People buy the items ,and they are very pleased, all’s well ,but what drives the need to make and own art -craft.

To  buy a piece of art or craft is to buy to own a part of the artist or craft person?   why . Most people would answer that they like looking at it . This means that the object touches a good feeling in themselves and in so the buyer has made a connection with the artist .

Confusing  is manifest among the artist family and i am not excluded from this problem. I started my working life learning the trade of iron  work ,this became ornamental craft ,craft seems to become art. I also work in oil painting and sculpting clay into bronze .As the picture shows I have recently began to work with bronze into jewalery.  At what stage of this process craft became art i simple don’t know and what direction to go??? It is now 2019 and the world and the blacksmith have moved on  and the world and the artist has moved on
