No Fight for Success in Art

The artist wants something with a specific descriptions, both in a whole and details, then becomes able to present it as exactly what it was in one hundred percent and with no deficiency in details. Having no deficiency in transfer the idea from mind to something real is what I call Art. There is no limitation for the plan _ traditional or avant-garde, having formal structure or no form, classic or commercial_ but the result has to be exactly the same as the plan.Therefore, an artist must know about each detail of his/her plan.

According to this idea, there will be no right to judge about the main idea. Some critics believe that ideas without any philosophies are worthless, they are worthless if they are imitation of another one, and so on.

I believe that the most important part of an art production process is the idea so any limitation or pressure can be extremely dangerous for an artist. An artist has to feel a complete freedom of making idea to become able to discover his/her unconsciousness. Some composition teachers think that they are helping their students by giving advices about what to do or what not to do, but the fact is that it only destroys their artistic characters. The only help should be in a way to waken up their unconsciousness!

Everything you need as an artist is in your unconsciousness!

There are many composition students here work hard on learning techniques like harmony, counterpoint, orchestration, form studies, while they are still under the huge pressure of fights for success in art.

There is NO need to fight for success in art!
Just be honest with inside of yourself,
egoist toward outside of yourself,
and responsible for your art.

There is no need to be worried about making something new when your personality defines your love in art! None of two finger prints are the same, and none of two art creatures can be the same. Therefore, there is no need to try for making a new one, it is itself new!

But,

Focus on what you want through smallest details!

There will be probably some problems during the production process related to the lack of some techniques. Here is the place of a good teacher to help the student learning the required technique.

As long as you are controlling every aspects of your creation, this is a VALUABLE piece of art.

My valuable memory:
"Nasim, this is your piece for a soprano and piano accompaniment. Could it be for a piano and soprano accompaniment?" Klaus Lang, 2013, Tehran
