Catherine Whall Smith . . . wonders what is the “Right amount of Wrong”

Since my art includes “improvisational piecing” – NO PATTERN – there is really no right or wrong design to the piece I am working on.  Notice I didn’t say “good or bad” design.  It happens – we all know that some of our art connects and some doesn’t.  When we enter juried shows there are the accepted and declined pieces.  So what was the difference? – One of my theories is that the piece of art should have “JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF WRONG”.  I recently came across this ad for Cosmopolitan Las Vegas a unique luxury resort and casino.

It said it all – I think I want to go there to find out what is the RIGHT amount of WRONG.  But for now I will continue working on this studio piece that is presently on my design wall, and give it the RIGHT amount of WRONG!  Feel free to let me know your thoughts on Art that has the RIGHT amount of WRONG. Looking forward to hearing from you! .

Note:  The first piece in this series “Get Me Out of Here” (12H x 12W) has been juried into the 2018 – Connecticut Women Artists (CWA) – 89th Annual National Open Juried Exhibition – EXHIBITION DATES: Saturday, September 1- Friday, September 28, 2018.
