Work by Sergej Kirilov
Is an artist ever stuck for ideas? Does an artisan always know exactly how to make something? In the time before factories, they often made a good team. Still do. Some people are artisan and artist in one. Is the artist who makes a tool a fool? Is this why applied arts are considered a lesser form of expression? How did architects jostle into position alongside painters and sculptors? Crafty and yet not craft. Arty and yet not art. Creativity is not so easy to label as the critics would sometimes have us believe.
