How do you value your art? Yourself?
I'd appreciate feedback on pricing your work.

Simple financially it is worth whatever someone is prepared to pay for it.
Personally it is the some total of your investment in time and creativity allied to the success of whatever you wished to express through it.
Culturally, the act of creating art has a value and the attitude of society to it's production has a value in defining the nature of the core beliefs of
a specific culture. For example Abstract Expressionism represented US democratic freedom, compare this to the naturalistic state approved art of the USSR. However American popular taste was akin to the chocolate box sentimentality of the Russians.
Finally to answer your question. I value my art as I value myself. It is produced by me from what my mind consumes, sometimes it is ****, sometimes it is beautiful but it is always me. How do you put a value on yourself?Edited by garethlane on 12-Feb-2010 at 7:59 AM
