Ugh. You had me at divinely inspired. The body of her work is predictably pedestrian and maudlin and completely uninspiring. That is unless of course you are good American evangelical and then she is a prodigy, a talent, and someone to be collected? Yet another good example of how and why America is where it is in terms of the culture wars in the 21st century. Just add a little Jesus to the mix and infantile piffle can get passed off a serious or important work to some or even many. At least with art the effect is immediately visible. It is when the ideology and belief system that supports this kind of art gets into politics, policy and governance then one has to be concerned. Or they should be. Ignore it and you get the 2018 American cultural and political landscape.

#2 You would have been more satisfied if she had painted a science lab or the Moon instead?

Her parents compared her lifestyle with modern kids and teenagers that rather spend hours in front of a screen. And I agree. Better to create art and / or developing skills than to consume TV shows or to be addicted to social media and Internet. But I also hope that she can have a normal childhood besides her work and passion.

And please people, try to avoid the word 'fitbit' as she is only 13 years old.

#2 Austin what exactly is your problem? Were you dropped on your head as a child? Were you an only one and ignored by your parents or dare I ask abused mentally. You seem a troubled miserable fecker who seems to go out of his or her way to find the worse in most subject matters. I'm not convinced you are male actually as I've noticed your negative comments seem to appear on a regular cycle, is it menstruation? or has that passed and do you need HRT perhaps?

Could you give us all a general list of everything you are ANTI.... Young female artists who no doubt paint better than you, is taken as read. What have you failed at in life to make you such a codger. I have a mental image of you but it would be really handy to give us all a description. I'm thinking Short-man syndrome plays a part, maybe premature balding, a lisp and a stutter, do you play a lot of video games? I'm close here arn't I? was there some confusion over your parentage, did you have to wear your cousins hand me downs when you were little and wasn't she your size? Were you bullied at school, that would be awful but might explain a lot. Have you had therapy, it can help, obviously not with height issues but getting the bad stuff out could be a revelation.

Were you brought up in a cult of some kind or have you perhaps formed your own and are looking for members? Are you a meat eater and would you kill your animals to eat, do you believe in a greater force and are you expecting to be reincarnated as a taller person next time, maybe one who is better liked or better at sport. Do you have any close friends, you don't do you, that's a shame. Come on now let it all out, maybe one of us can help.:squirrel:

I'm sincerely in awe at her talent for painting...I wish I could do something half as good...but to be honest I tuned out when I heard the religious stuff.

Obviously v talented but probably brainwashed by parents to think this work of God hope she grows up and grows out of that belief but then again i think maybe not

Oh my where to start?

First, this teen is not a prodigy by any stretch.

Prodigy ‘having extraordinary talent or ability: a musical prodigy’

She has some raw talent and may be advanced for her age but she is by no definition a prodigy. Her technique is simplistic, subject matter banal and doesn’t show any great depth or insight, and her repertoire is trite and repetitive. Which is fine because she is a child and will presumably develop her skills over time. This does not make her a prodigy or her art any good or worthwhile. I am amazed that people can gush over her art, it is objectively simple and not all that technically impressive. This is just a fact. You can appreciate her work – fine, but she is not a prodigy nor is her work valuable outside the community that she is painting for. Her work doesn’t add anything to society writ large. These banal canvasses will never hang in the Louvre.

Picasso was an art prodigy. His earliest sketches and work showed raw talent and creativity. This child hasn’t demonstrated any of this yet. And thus superlative super human genius silliness. For fu*k’s sake people, get a grip. Calling art average or mediocre is not the end of the world.

And then lets not forget – this young woman talks about hearing voices in her head and then expressing those voices on her canvasses.

She is hearing voices in her head… in any other domain this would probably give people pause or concern but when it comes to religion then it is all fine and dandy.

As long as the voices continue to say ‘let’s paint a sunset’ or ‘use more yellow here’ and not something violent and retributive then I guess it is ok. It is always amazing what you can get away with when you invoke religion. Well Christianity. If a Muslim was hearing voices in his or her head then I suspect snotraddict et al wouldn’t nearly as charitable. ;-)

#8 Well she's 23 now and still doing remarkably well. You didn't clarify your issues Austin, shall we stick with the dropping on the head as a child and now the short man syndrome and move on.O:)

lucky we have Austin to tell us what art is any good and what art is worthwhile i wonder how he decides

#10. sockcooker et al.

If you really think that ‘Lone horse in snowy barren woods’ or numerous saccharine images of religious ecstasy that may or may not feature Jesus, or portraits of dewy little girls with manga-like disproportionally big and round eyes, or rugged still-life couples portraits are examples of excellent art and prodigious artistic skills and thus valuable – fantastic. Artistic value is to some degree in the eyes of the beholders and if you find this young lady’s oeuvre to be sophisticated enough for your tastes – so be it.

Her work however is, shall we say, not sophisticated, and any first year art student or anyone with a basic studies in art or art history could tell you this.

We could talk about criteria such as light, space, concept, use of colour, texture, composition, movement, proportion, uniqueness, technical skill, innovation etc etc but this would be a waste of our respective time since your minds and tastes appear to be intractable on this matter

So we stand at an impasse.

Let’s just say I am quite confident that her work will never appear in any of the world’s great collections.

I dont think we stand at an impasse #11 Austin i think we stand waiting for examples of your own artwork because you know so much about light, space, concept, use of colour, texture, composition, movement, proportion, uniqueness, technical skill, innovation etc etc this is things we all know nothing about and i think we will all benefit from seeing examples of your own work which will illustrate good art perfectly please hurry and provide link to your masterpieces

#12. sockcooker

You seem to have wilfully conflated the ability to appreciate and evaluate art and the ability to create and produce it. I am surprised that I have to state this for you but these are two very distinct skills. And I have never claimed to be an artist. I can however, along with many other people, evaluate to some degree whether a piece of artwork or collection may have some merit – again, two very different skill sets. One can be a critic or evaluate technical aspects of art without being an accomplished artist him or herself.

So you will have to forgive me if I ignore your request to present my own grand painting. Alas, I do not have any. (But I still know crap when I see it ;-)

#13 Thank you for clearing that up for us Austin I think we understand now. you memorised lots of words about art but cant in fact do it yourself. I am reminded of old saying those that can, do and those that cant just talk about it. :D

And your lack of logic and steadfast stubbornness reminds me of an appropriate Mark Twain quote

‘“Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

Your argument mirrors your appreciation for this teenager’s art – both are equally mundane.

#15 Treating this comments section like a boxing match, I've just totaled up the scores for each round and you lost each and everyone. Ding Ding, You are going to require a knockout in the last round to win this one... So come on, stand on your box with your platforms on, reach up as high as you can and try and get one in just above the belt. :D:D:D

Why of course JJ, by all means please do step in as the voice of objectivity and reason. LOL :'(

You do realize that a judge, in the Western world, is required conduct him or herself with impartiality and fairness.

Both are qualities that you, by virtue of your previous derogatory posts about me, have surrendered. Uh oh – he canz reads post #4. ;-)

Sorry JJ, in spite of your namesake you have absolutely disqualified yourself from judging this so called bout.

Thanks for offering to play. Now take your meds and go to bed.

Night night boys - this was enlightening.

#17 last year my sister was in hospital for an operation. everything went well surgeon did his job well and great result. takes years and years of study and practice to reach his level of expertise but Austin, you are so clever i bet you could read a few wiki articles this afternoon and then you would be an expert on the subject. i will arange for my sisters medical notes to be passed on to you so you can let the surgeon know how to do it better next time

#20. Sockcooker. Sigh. You really need to learn how to stop digging when you are in a logical hole.

Resorting to reductio ad absurdum argument doesn’t help your case at all. It just draws attention to your stubbornness and lack of understanding.

Bottom line is you like mediocre art. And that is fine. Why can’t you accept that and move on?

To each their own. Art in a broad sense can be objective critiqued as being either good or mediocre, showing skill or not, talent or not. You seem to like in this hyper-relativistic space where trainig, proven expertise and presumably success is required to have an objective and thus valuable opinion.

When you eat in a restaurant you probably don’t hesitate to declare a meal good, mediocre or bad. But are you a chef? Probably not but that doesn’t stop you for voicing an opinion and defendign it to others.

When you watch a film you probably don’t hesitate to evaluate it as good, mediocre or bad. But are you a film maker? Probably not.

You drink wine – are you a vinter? But you know crap wine when you drink it.

Etc etc. One doesn’t have to be an 'expert' to be able to have informed and well based opinions.

And one can have pedestrian tastes in art. Not a big deal. You have clearly owed it vociferously enough by now for all to see - time to move on man before you embarrass yourself further.

Austin do you actually believe what you write or are you deliberately trying to mislead. Either way your words do little for your credibility, look back and you will see nowhere have i said i like her work. I wrote that she is verytalented and she is. I certainly could not paint and draw like that when I was her age, and still cant and as you finally admitted neither can you. You wouldnt know the difference between a paintbrush and a penis, though i suspect youve had more experience handling the latter.

The issue here is the casual way you dismiss her work, relying on a handful of well chosen words and phrases you have selected to make yourself appear knowledgeable in the field of art. From your many posts it is clear that it is very important for you to be accepted as an authority on a wide variety of subjects. you are the incessant bore who demands attentiona and respect but does not earn it In this case you try to elevate your own standing by destroying hers but youre fooling nobody Austin, except maybe yourself

Austin, please stop attacking/provoking people in the comments. You're like this for quite some time now, and I (and other people, I'm sure) had enough of you and your provocative comments. Be nice to other people, learn to express yourself in a more positive way. Snotr is for entertainment and fun, not for fighting with your neighbors. Don't even try to give me a silly-comprehensive "comeback" of how I am wrong or bla bla. I don't want to hear it. You're nice - all good :D ------ you're not nice - LEAVE. I think I made myself loud and clear. Also, it's nothing personal. Peace O:)

I know I'm late commenting on the video.
Is she a talented artist? Definitely yes.
Is she a genius? No, she isn't.
What gives me the right to say this? About 17 years as a freelance illustrator.

Now, regarding the subjects of her paintings. I understand nowadays is quite trendy to be an Atheist and thats okay.
But ask yourself this: have you ever visited a gallery with classical work? Did you enjoyed it?
Most classical work is religious in nature. Not necessarily Christian religion (although a lot of the Renaissance is just that) but also ancient religions and mythology. Art has been always been related to religion, in a very big part. She is no different and, if she's successful she deserves her praise as an artist.
Most of the time is better to let the art speak for instead of garnishing it with personal beliefs and philosophies. If the subject is well chosen and masterful executed enough, the viewer will appreciate it.

Art doesn't have to realistic to be good. No doubt she has extraordinary observational skills, but that doesn't make her a good artist. And yes I agree with #5 and #6.
