Interests
WHAT IF THESE IMAGES ONLY HAD DYING MEN?  
Would that be okay?  "Acceptable?"

WHAT IF I WAS FEMALE?
Maybe I am.  Like many users, I have told a lot of lies in my profile.

Would the fact that I'm a woman make this sort of photo-manip more "palatable"?  Would that earn me a little more "artistic license" to get away with creating this sort of "sick", "twisted", "perverted" work?

WHAT IF I WAS MARCEL DUCHAMPS?
He turned a urinal on its side and called it a "fountain", and now it's a famous work of art.  Maybe if my name was Marcel Duchamp, and I had access to Photoshop and I manipulated pre-existing pictures, those manipulations would also be considered art.  (Or maybe Marcel Duchamp would still get criticized here for not making "real" art.

why is most of your art locked up?

Here's why:

The content of my deviations offended another dA member.  This member can’t get dA to remove my work for content violations (since I haven’t violated any of dA’s content rules), but this person DID file a complaint for some 300 of my works, because I have not provided “model releases” for them.  Yes, model releases for works that are photomanipulated pastiches of a variety of pictures--most of them public domain!  Yes, model releases for works in which I used NO models--the facial expressions are all pieced together from a variety of sources!

Notice that even manipulated ARTWORK got locked!  (That's right, a manipulation of a PAINTING.  How, I wonder, does one obtain a model release for a PAINTING???)

 

According to dA, I have thirty days to provide these releases, or my work will be removed.

 

I have responded to dA admin that it is impossible to obtain model releases due to the nature of photomanipulation, and that these complaints are basically an attack against the content of my work.  I have not heard back from dA yet. 

 

Please read the comments on my journal entry at the following link to get the whole story.  I’m sure you’ll find it interesting reading!

So if you don’t like someone’s work, feel free to complain to dA that they have not obtained a model release, and dA will gladly lock it up!
