broken earth

“What have they done to the earth?
What have they done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down”

-- Jim Morrison

Art Fair!

@The Compost Collective (Queens, NYC)'s Spring/Summer Local Market.
‪Made a little profit, had some fun, and most importantly made a LOT of people happy (and had 2-3 hours of drawing in as well) — so I’d say it was a good day.

The Future of Art?

As a fellow artist on Twitter remarked,
“… feels like we're headed to a future where human-created artisanal art will be relegated to unmonetizable niche small subcommunities or local communities
people will rush to compete by flooding the market with AI Content™ while human made art will struggle to even be visible.”
Coincidentally, exactly what I was thinking when I made this … anticipating future generations becoming accustomed to generative art as something rendered immediately, almost instantaneously via a text-prompt — foregoing the slow, arduous process of learning how to MAKE art with tangible, physical material, and skills painstakingly honed and cultivated over time.
Hopefully, I will be mistaken in thinking such.
But you take a look at everything that is happening in the space of a year, the exponential LEAPS in technology, the intoxicating allure of it all, the impact on every genre imaginable … and have to admit the temptation to go “full-Luddite” is present.

This was done for a weekly word/phrase challenge on Twitter, “old town”; just my somewhat dour interpretation of the phrase.
What I was intending to portray was the feeling of being left out, cast aside, alienated. Sometimes it happens by way of economic class and bigotry (ex. “gated communities” intent upon exclusion of the other, “out of sight, out of mind” — indicated by the trash heap, concealed behind the wall); or perhaps by technology or “progress”, as when an industry finds itself outdated, leaving behind abandoned factories and those who once made a living from it.
In many cases, “old towns” can be emblematic to me of those society has forgotten, or intentionally don’t wish to see. 

There are greener pastures, the future may be bright — but typically for the privileged, the select few.
