    http://www.geocities.com/qipeng100776/ is the first artwork website I built from scratch. It's rather minimalist in its approach but I prefer it like that for sure...

    Enjoy the stuff on it and feel free to comment :)

    Yahoo Small Business is better. It's where I hosted my site for nine months for $13 a month, and never hit a bandwidth limit.

    Ermm, I know they say that everyone has their own taste when it comes to art, but I just don't get those on your site.

    Love your work. I like the minimalist approach to your site, it fits your style. One thing: I would like to see bigger pictures of the individual pieces - I kept clicking on the images thinking they were thumbnails. They're way too small! Link them to bigger pictures and I think you have a winner.

    My websites are hosted with one.com

    Real cheap and I think they don't have bandwith limits

    Sounds good... however the space limitation doesn't seem to help with the thumbnail aspect of it.

    based on the stats, I think that I'm limited to about 67 to 80 views a day using free geocities?

    I like it. I'm a sucker for conceptual art, and I love expressive painting (pollock style). Keep it up!

    Sorry, but I didn't like your work - I just don't understand what you mean by it all. Not my cup of tea

    That's a good thing too. Groundbreaking art isn't always understood on the first glance.

    "Groundbreaking art isn't always understood on the first glance."
    A bathroom plunger with a condom on the end is not what i would consider avant guard. Naive, maybe.:eek:

    as for your art...

    "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all"

    I'm going to take a cue from Bambi here.


    As far as your site, minimilist definitely works for your stuff, but change the font to something else, remove the blue for the links, and make the size smaller and make your images larger.

    Take a cue from the basic .mac portfolio sites. Very minimal, but not so clearly "linky" and boring. Scrolling down to each work is annoying too, too much white space, try putting them in a grid or something. Showcase your work, don't let the giant links and such distract.

    maybe you could help out those of us who don't get you work.

    Could you explain the meaning of them.

    You could start off with the ones called "Event" and "The Weight of Chocolate"
