when you say goodbye to your art, how do you do it?

do you treat art that you've discarded because your house it too cluttered differently to the art you remove from your website because it doesn't reflect what your creations stand for now?

i'll start: paper is one of my less-temporary mediums which i use often. i like to fashion what i write into scrolls that are tied with a string and sometimes sealed with a wax stamp. when discarding these, i burn them because the heat and smoke that protrudes from the end - much like a cigarette! - is mesmerizing.

Having a little ceremony sounds nice, but I've never even thought about anything like that... I guess it just means that I'm not that attached to my art? Some old traditional pieces I discard just make me think "those were some fun times but it's time to move on!".
And a few times I asked friends if they want to take them since they find it awful that I just throw my own art out; and they did so I don't have to worry that it's a waste or something :ha:

Some of my art was made via commission, and I say a proper goodbye when I seal the packaging. I do a KonMari thing, literally saying "thank you" to the work. For personal work, I say goodbye in a similar way to j - I burn it! Gives that part of my artistic journey a viking funeral. I burned all my art made before 2015, but unlike John Baldessari, I didn't get to bake them into cookies.

this is a really cool concept that I'll have to explore going forward. up until now i've made or pasted all of my art into my sketchbooks, which are a good chronological view of my life from 2016 on.
But now and then i have pieces i toss in the trash if i just don't have space. i already have something like a ceremony for my new/finished sketchbooks, so this sounds like a cool addition. :omg: :grin:

I have drawings that are 20 and 30 years old still laying around XD

Well, idk really. I mostly just draw on normal paper, and if I like it, I keep it, if not, I just throw it away. In the end, I usually just keep anything I found to be well made, or at the very least a little bit interesting to keep, even if it's a bit ugly or something. But then again, I am a little bit of a hoarder, haha. I keep most stuff in boxes and stuff tho, and the boxes stashed away, so the space itself isn't a problem for me. At some point tho I will probably throw away more of it.
