I currently have artworks for sale at about the same price as the TV in my poster. Its not the best TV in the shop. Its sort of a middle of the range basic TV. However, no matter how much people may SAY they like the artworks for sale at the same price, they walk away with "but I cant afford it" My artworks are original, one of a kind. They are not mass produced, they will not break or get old and need replacing. I spend all day, every day making them. Yet, it seems that they don't have the same value as everyday material items. Lets do some math: cost of artwork 100% Materials (cost to make the art) : 15% Frame: 7% Acid free mount board: 4% Glass: 2% Gallery commission: 40% TIME: priceless. Profit (payment, salary, call it what you like) : 32% We all have a right to work for a wage? well, artists cant count on that it seems.
