Christina Rees and Brandon Zech discuss the effects that time has on our likes, dislikes, and perceptions about art.

“The art that makes you uncomfortable, or that you don’t understand or that you’ve been dismissive of — that’s the stuff that can ultimately sneak up on you and become what you value the most.”

Interesting talk as always. Thank you.

You mentioned Gerhard Richter’s imperative to finish a work within two weeks……. That makes perfect sense IF you begin with a concept and then execute it. But if you work the other way around, then it doesn’t hold true.

I agree with Julie Speed. For those of us who simply begin and let our reaction to the evolving image guide us, a work of art may go through many permutations over many weeks.
