Working harder for less

Tyler Green at MAN on Chuck Close

How much time should it take to make a painting or sculpture. Is the value determined by the quality or the skill? Does the complexity of the image matter?

Our culture judges everything by the speed at which it is done. We seem unwilling to pay for skill or craftsmanship. If it can be made to look like stone but made by a manufactured process in half the time that's ok. Is this the movie set culture.
