Art and Fear

What is the difference between art and craft?

The difference between art and craft is the fact that art is more conceptual. When considering art one is considering the connections between pieces and the concepts behind them. Art explores ideas through craft. Craft is the individual piece made within the artwork. A craft is made to fit the artwork, being a piece of the artwork.

What do the authors mean when they refer to artist habits as style? What is your style as an artist?

When the authors discuss the artists habits as style they dive into the idea that an artists habits of phrasing, automatic selection, materials and other habits define who they are as an artist. The way an artists makes art and their habitual subject matters shows who they are and their style. Personally I have two styles as an artist. My first style is very traditional using a canvas and a paintbrush. I love taking places that are meaningful to me and turning them into a painting. My second style is a style involving material. This style shows my playful side while I experiment with different materials and tools.

"All art is autobiographical?" Based on what you read what is your opinion?

Personally I completely agree with this statement. Everything a person makes and does is somewhat autobiographical. The article talks about how when you paint the brush is making a mark in response to your gesture. The same thing can be said about anything you do and the differences you make. Every mark you make on a page somewhat says something about you. You chose to make that mark in that way.
