The Fine Art Of Destruction

A Pantoum Inspired By A Concept By Mick Smith

From The Cover of "Mëkanïk Destruktïw Kömmandöh" by Magma

Introduction

Mick Smith posted an idea on Facebook. I'm sure he will be ok with me sharing it, but visit his Facebook Page to see his amazing work.

Artists/creatives, we always seem to produce with an audience in mind but what if we remove that audience and work purely for yourself. Process becomes much more interesting than outcome. With this in mind I think I will take some time out to make work that NO-ONE will ever see. In fact as each painting is finished it could be thrown straight into the skip - no sales, exhibitions, mockery or pats on the back, total freedom. OK I might start with some diabolic nightmare that would normally get me taken away....

I liked the concept but wasn't so sure on how to approace this, so I thought a pantoum might work. Then again it might not, but we shall see.

The music is "Mëkanïk Kömmandöh" from "Mëkanïk Destruktïw Kömmandöh" by the French band Magma led by Christian Vander

    Excellent work

  • Interesting thought. A practice & exhibition designed & intended only for one to express what one might not otherwise express if there more potentially involved.
