Home decor and affordable art in stores is getting really good. And cool. And full of color.
And suddenly "indie" in the art world means photos of Ferris wheels with a pink haze overlay and rounded corners. Or a drawing of a 70's style bird with faux wood grain (like I saw at Renegade) on paper with rounded corners. This is very disturbing. When did indie stop meaning cool and different? Why are artists all being so safe and cute? And why is everyone copying the same exact idea? Where is all the bold color and bravery? Why do all the Ferris wheels have to be blurry pink? If you are going to do one, how about doing one in purple and green and not all soft and hazy? Give me sharp, grown-up edges! Give the world your own unique voice, personality, and style.
Remember, Pulp Fiction was an indie movie and it wasn't in pastels.
[note: I have made soft fuzzy art when it's what my clients want.]
