Not even sure if anyone is going to see/read this, I've been off dA for so long! But I've read this comment today that made me feel like someone actually put in words my exact (negative) attitude towards certain types of modern art:

"There is this big anxiety against a certain type of conceptualism that seems totally based on an artistic idea, and whose execution as an art work does not require any of the traditional artistic skills and techniques".
Alexandra Kokoli, Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture - Fine Arts, Middlesex University London

Yes, that is exactly my anxiety. Call me old-fashioned, but Vermeer all the way!

Hello! How are you?? I have written a journal about manuals of artistic anatomy and have left a few links with the most interesting images of every part of the human body... Maybe you are interested in seeing it. Greetings from Valencia!!
