You might be impressed for a moment... until you realised that these days a robot
can probably do the same thing.
They couldn’t create their own paintings.
They couldn’t produce anything original.
They couldn’t take novel commissions, or adjust their painting based on feedback or the person they were painting for.
If that person called themselves “a painter” you would probably raise an eyebrow, thinking “well, sort of… but not really!”
In the world of the visual arts it’s taken as absolutely fundamental that an artist creates their own works.
A good artist can sit down with a blank piece of paper, or block of marble, or any other medium and create something worth looking at.
They feel free, creative, expressive.
And again: it’s a deep and core part of who they are and how they interact with the world.
