Randy Thurman's Philosophy on Art and “The Art of Conspiration”
The Philosophy behind the Art of Conspiration: Why does the artist paint? Is it not the artists main goal to express some thing, to convey some message or meaning to the viewer? Without the viewer there is no need for the painting. If there is no need for the painting, then there is no need for the artist. In an ideal situation, when this triangular convergence of art, artist and viewer occurs, it produces the Art of Conspiration.
The art, artist, and viewer form this triangle, and if we remove any one component there is only non-existence. This symbiotic triad of components works in almost any situation, whether dealing with art, nature or economics. A shared empathy between these three components of the triangle is essential to creating the ideal situation, facilitating the Art of Conspiration.
“If art cannot affect the way in which we live,
think, and believe; it is useless.” – RT
