I bumped into artist and musician Martin Creed. He dismissed what he saw as the reductive division between artists and ?non-artists.? ?Everything everyone does is a creative act.

Seriously Kids—— if you know of a more “received opinion” let me know

I don't know about received so much as predictable.

Creativity Can't be taught.
Art is not defineable.
Good Art is not didactic.
Every artist a scientist, every critic a detective.
Don't beg

Heavy art is made by suffering artists
Everyone can be an artist
Art stars are born not made
Team playing is wrong

Would you call this “melancholy” they look kind of dangerous and exciting

<www.artnet.com/magazineus/reviews/robinson/robinson6-5-07.asp>

Another artist in the “Open Plan” was Kostis Velonis, who is represented by Zina Athanassiadou gallery in Thessaloniki. His forlorn structures made of found wood are rather more melancholy than the assertive metal works of David Smith, whose sculptural esthetic they borrow. Velonis gives his works comically politicized titles, such as Lenin?s Podium & Stalin?s Falsification.

Like a plastic bag on concertina wire

“I’ve never eaten one of the candies,” she said, “because it represents the contagion.”

reminds me of 28 days later with its melancholy but overbearing sountrack by GSYBE, who's formula is the slow orchestral build a la Gorecki.
