When ideas take the place of craftsmanship, know-how and expertise, art goes out the window.
Ideas are too frail, temporary, subjective, fluid, and inconsistent to be able to serve as the core motivation for art making. They depend on specific contexts and are the result of endless conditioning, and therefore are limited in their capacity to offer the open, uncharted space the artistic process requires.
True craftsmanship on the other hand, is the gateway through which art can serve its purpose best, beyond ideas, concepts and agendas.
Ideas tend to accumulate, they multiply and produce more and more ideas, which then fill the space and stifle the mind. They are the result of memory, past experience and future projection, all forms of conditioning, while what art needs most, are empty unconditioned spaces and minds.
There is no art in ideas.
