Burn 1 2014

Burn 1 2014
I was mentioning to friends;
A group of us have weekly life drawing sessions up here on top of the world during the winter (None in summer, who wants to sit inside with 24 hours of daylight? & alas, not many of our models want to pose, un-draped, outside with 24 hours of mosquitoes.), meeting in the studio of a friend who trained in St. Petersburg (Russia).

He introduced us to art burning, a tradition he learned in the Russian art academy. Once a year the students would get together light a bonfire, discuss and burn their bad works.

So! Now we get together on a cool April evening light a fire, most years beside a frozen stream with a 6 foot tall ice sculpture behind us, then one will pull out a sketch or painting, explain why he’d dissatisfied with it and tosses it in the flames. Art is communication and this way we use even our bad art to teach each other, and ourselves, to strive for improvement.

So! Posting there from 2014

Is it against protocol for someone in the group to disagree with your choices/ reasons and plead for a stay of execution?
