not my own work - but please watch this : youtube
, and listen
if you cannot listen / watch - a transcript is availiable here
its too long to reproduce in thread but , this one sentence was i thought the most relevant to me :
Storytelling has become somehow a dirty word in the world of fine art. Storytelling is demeaned as mere "illustration" and "illustration"
itself is relegated to the "commercial arts."
what happened indeed ?
it is not some random crank , but a art historian - and listening to it actually helped explain , why so much ` modern art ` leaves me empty and
disatisfied - even [ although i have no artistic training or ability myself ] even contemptuous of its value and the " talent " or rather IMHO the
alleged tallent behind them .
a key question this raised , at least for me - is what will be the art legacy of the late 20th , early 21st centuries ? how will we be viewed in the
coming centuries ?
