Wow, good job at "denying ignorance", ats, I'm truly impressed! "I don't understand something, therefore it MUST be complete crap". What makes
your taste in art so exquisite, what makes your opinion more important than that of millions who visit art museums and can appreciate modern art?
Art is subjective, different people will like different things, just like with music, according to their personality and upbringing. YOU don't
"get" abstract art, fine, there are others that do, plenty of them in fact, what makes YOUR opinion more important? Why the bashing?
When it comes to plastic art, I prefer abstract ones. They say so much more than classical art, they capture something behind the simple form and
colour of things. The "essence" of reality if you will. In the words of Constantin Brancusi,
"What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things... it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating
its exterior surface. "
"When you see a fish you don't think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water... If I made
fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit."
You show a bunch of .jpgs and you expect people to judge modern art by those? You can't judge a painting by a 100x150 .jpg image on your screen.
It's like trying to write a book review after reading just the foot notes of that book. Seriously, when it comes to plastic art appreciation, the
internet is pretty much made for lolcats.
And you guys are even bashing on Picasso and Van Gogh?
Your preschool child could paint better? Well then I suggest you buy the child some
canvas and oil, they'll surely become rich and famous since art is so facile that anyone, literally anyone can do it.
I understand, you don't get/like/agree with abstract art. Which is really normal, not everyone must like everything. But calling it "idiocy"?
