"Untitled" Graphite drawing
Not For Sale
Graphite Drawing On Stonehenge Paper
8 x 10
I was having a discussion online today with this group I am a member of on Facebook. The question being debated was "Is UNTITLED paintings nothing but escapists?" Even though the question was badly written I think the author was asking if a piece is untitled is the artist trying to escape from having to explain their work? I feel this is all hogwash. A piece of art is visual. It stands on its own merits. It does not need the artist to further define what they have already defined in creating it. A rose by any other name is still a rose. That is why i have titled my latest piece "UNTITLED". Please if anyone thinks I am not an artist and that this piece does not speak to the viewer because I have NOT titled it let me know.
