Email to Ingrid Kamerbeek to Pygoya
Gallery owner of one of NYC's big galleries in
Chelsea wants to BECOME A WEBIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Could it be that the
answer, the question of life for the artist, to be or not to be....is..
perseverance. Continue the
struggle and possibly after such a long search, while improving one's style
and expanding the inventory of completed works, until you plug into money and
the art system, some call it the 'world.' Sorry not for all, for life
still remains a crap shot, but for the chosen few who persevered in personal
financial sacrifice, to be 'discovered.' Like the American Idol, instant
fame and fortune can be bestowed. To those ready, and standing in the right
place in time.
Now we HAVE our own NY Gallery.
Ask how much to change their name and I'm willing to pay but prefer to
exchange dental services for NYC art world promotion. Hey, they will
make out too, a gallery, in the right space and time, finally grabbing on to
the Webists and make their work their financial own and gain. Smart
folks, not just "in" the Big Apple but wired online. They have found
the cream of digital art available online, artists who themselves have
established formal recognition for their private art donations to world visual
cyberculture. Webists provide instant look-for-free art (note: no right clicking!), coming in
from any place on the planet. Search for Web based art or merely "Web Art" - or
"Webism (Pygoya, published 1997)."
so we move ahead on that art
front. Good job, Colonel Kamerbeek.
Maybe your art's time has
and now a possible encounter with
big bucks connection in a wired into the California/national? art world by a lost
relative just discovered? She was shocked to find out I, a relative left
behind on the island, was also an artist. Lois said her next dream as an
artist is to get into a museum. She also said I have a famous public sculptor
2nd uncle there. Her "good friend" is returning to CA soon and
she will show her my work at lastplace.com. This person is a patron to
the museums, "buying paintings for them." At last, could this
source be my own road to financial success as an artist? Possibly the
startup of a new global fashion/fabric designer line? But most
important, never in my own wildest dreams did I suspect to belong to a gene
pool of artists, all working in California (and beyond?). I am not alone
lonely here in Hawaii as no relative even talks or looks at art- all too busy earning a
living I guess). But now the realization that there a history of artists in my
There is a living limb of which I
possibly am linked to, a plank to walk across and join my art clan. Having done
my job, the development of a mature body of works with published documentation, and the
creator of an 'ism as context for my work and others, anywhere on the planet
(as long as they can afford online visibility), might now to be introduced into
the marketplace by the influential, patronizing, good salmaritans, and the
hopefuls for world harmony.
People also with vision.
