‘Untitled (Palette knife no. 2)’. Kavir Mootoo, 2021. Acrylic on 12”x24” canvas board. (Unframed) (*SOLD*)

US$150.00

‘What is art?’ came to mind for me often in the last few weeks. There is work done with a high level of technical skill and work done without any formal art education. Is one worth more than the other? This I believe is up to an individual to decide for themself. 

The explanation that makes sense to me is one given by a friend a few years ago – that art is one person’s expression of their soul possibly with the result that a viewer connects with theirs. I like this. It feels inclusive and challenges the art world, the pricing and value of art. Who for example decides that a painting is worth millions of dollars…… and should it???

This is the second piece I did with a new palette knife. It is my art – expressing myself in a way that felt most authentic. I could say that ‘I’m excited, calm, intrigued, inquisitive’ but to paint these emotions/states is a whole other ballgame. I would eg be able to give rise to a stroke that had its origin in a recess of me that I didn’t even know existed before meeting it at that instant. It is this that I create for.

Offered as part of the #artistsupportpledge (please see photos for details).
