Obviously, both conceptual and concept art deal with ideas. Yet in many ways these two approaches to picture-making reside at opposite ends of the art spectrum. Where conceptual art focuses on the idea itself while only begrudgingly including a tactile, visible component, concept art is ALL about dragging amorphous concepts into the revealing light of physical reality. Simply put, the purpose of concept art is to show us what stuff looks like.
It’s one thing to contemplate an artist’s work on the walls of a gallery or in a good museum, or perhaps read a great article in a leading art magazine, but the perspective one receives is obviously limited and never totally complete until you have the opportunity to converse directly with the artist while in their studio.
