The ability to name things is a wonderfully creative act.
Naming your art work is more than an afterthought.
(In fact, some artists begin with a title in mind.)
A title is an added vehicle to communicate with your audience.
The right name can bring out the full essence of your artistic voice. The right words can guide the viewer's search for personal meaning in your art. The right title reaches beyond the visual realms and into the viewer's emotions.
According to collage artist and creativity coach, Sarah Kahn, "A powerful piece can certainly stand alone, title-less. To some people, 'Untitled #99' is far from captivating. For others, even 'Untitled' is an invitation into the artist's internal world."
Titling your work, your shows and your media announcements is every bit as important as making your art to your highest standards.
If a title doesn't knock you on the head and say "hello!" then there's a limit to what happens next. But when the title is well-suited for the piece, all kinds of wonderful magic can occur.
