A Painting is a Painting

"Outside of What I See," © 2018 Brad Michael Moore



"A Painting is a Painting, & a Giclée May be an Original Work of Art!"   

by Brad Michael Moore 19 Jan. 2018


A painting is a painting - a Giclée of a painting is a Giclée of a painting! Don't scorn the Giclée as an overall 'lesser,' artistic rendering because someone used it to reproduce a painting - that reproduction just becomes a, '2nd generation of the Original' - born of another medium... 

*

However, if you are a Creator of Digital Artifacts - which have their own 'unique set' of original qualities - you, 'Can Not,' represent it - as a painting. The, 'Original Rendering,' of the 1st Giclée printed, from its Digital File, has an advantage over the 'Original Painting's 1st reproduction' - the, 'Digital Artifact,' in its second, and all following printings - will be as perfect as it's original print! At least, for as long as the 'Original File' is not corrupted, or, it also has many backup file copies. 

*

An original painting is an, "One of a Kind," and can never be reproduced as well as it was, 'Originally Painted.' This is a fundamental fact that is considered 'truth!' When determining the actual value of a, "One of a Kind,"  work of art - be it a painting, Drawing, etc. - even the Artist of a Digital Artifact can affect the value of their first printing of their original, 'Digital Artifact,' - simply by destroying the, "Original File!" - after it's original is printed... Thereafter - that, "Original Digital Artifact Rendering," must, next, be copied - likely digitally, but, maybe by film, and any reproduction of that work, in the future, in any medium, will be a 'Copy' of the original artwork! It's price will be based, first, on the fact it is a, "Copy," - then, all the other variables that may come into play. Main considerations are - the artist's fame, weather they are living, or not, the art's size, method of reproduction - [mechanical, or human] - and, reputations! If by machine (is it, 'State of the Art,' at the time of printing? [Date Notated]) - and the Printer 'themselves' - the reputation of their skills & experience, and their knowledge of both - the medium they work with (Giclée Printing Skills,) and their accessibility to the original work of art. Still, then, they will only be able to reproduce the effect of the painter's strokes, & match, as perfectly as possible, the pigment color, contrast, etc. 

*

The "Reproduced," work may be, 'so strong,' - it can still stand for itself (in the eyes of the beholder,) but, there is only, "One Original!" Why are some villainous individuals, in this world, who believe there can only be value in the original? They will risk their lives - or the lives of others, and spend millions of dollars - just so they, alone, can have that original…?!

*
As an artist of Hybrid Digital Artifacts, - I only have to decide if I will destroy the original file - after it has been perfectly reproduced, for the first time, and the buyer agrees to reward me handsomely!
