The sunrise in your hands
at http://www.cristinaramosphotography.com/#1: while crossing the borders of different techinques have you ever happened to realize that a synergy between different disciplines is the only way to achieve some results, to express some concepts?
I don’t think is the only way always. It depends. You may achieve perfectly what you want to say just with painting, or you may need mixed media. But even if you use only one technique, I do believe in experimenting because actually the own technical process can inspire you conceptually. And if needed to achieve your goal, experiment with as many techniques you want. There is no reason to be narrow minded. For instance, there are still some those few people who detract an artwork where
photoshop was used cause has ¨less merit¨ I find this really dumb, because If a digital media allows to create something and express an idea you cannot do within a traditional way, why to refuse to use it and limit your creativity? I love playing around my concepts and enjoying being creative with no restrictions. Why not to represent myself through photography pulling from the sun, or in a popcorn storm, or levitating in the forest, if the technology brings as the opportunity to materialize your ideas faster? The same goes for painting when it comes to experiment with texture, transfer, and any material, or sculpture, or any discipline. Art is in constant evolution and I definitely support experimenting with new techniques and offer new things to art panorama.
