Yes, there is a more appropriate saying,

"Pissing on a canvas does not make it art. Its still just piss on a canvas." - Me

Maybe not, but here is one I enjoy

Snipped Content

making accusations such as "spitting on a child"

bringing in your christianity crap im assuming when you refer to "the kingdom"

just give it up, you dont need to try to act "holier than thou"

save that for church..

and if you reread my first post, youll realize (with competence) that i never said i dislike her art.

and i wouldnt be in the example situation you proposed, because i wouldnt spend that much money to provide my child with endless paint to make a mess, i'd take the time to teach them how to enjoy and appreciate 1/100th of that amount of resources. a child doesnt need enough supplies to build an art museum to be happy to their fullest potential.

you may learn that some day

materialism is not evolution.

Okay Sunshine ... now, why don't you enlighten us as to why you do not consider this art. something more substantial then that you don't like it or consider it relevant because it was made by a child. I'll take academic and substance related, artistically relevant arguments.

Now that the expert art critics are beginning to have sway in this thread, I'd like to repeat this famous quote:


As for the degenerate artists, I forbid them to force their so-called experiences upon the public. If they do see fields blue, they are deranged, and should go to an asylum. If they only pretend to see them blue, they are criminals, and should go to prison. I will purge the nation of them.

Make of it what you will.

Now, back to my paints. Aelita has forced my hand.

I never really liked this type of abstract art, it just doesn't do it for me. It looks like nothing more than random splatters to me. It does not seem to tell a story, or have a purpose. It's probably fun, to have a room where you can just splatter paint all over the place like that, but I just don't see a real artistic merit to it for some reason.

very true, it may be appealing to glance at once, but it's highly possible for even a disabled adult, or child, to replicate similar work with the same materials.

I have to agree with the others who say her talent is being wildly overblown. Give any child her age a canvas and paints to play with and they'll come up with the same. When she's able to do something like the 6 year old boy in this link, or like any of the other beautiful works done by amazing child artists out there that you can find through Google, then I'll admit to her artistic genius.

That is great work (from the link) but you are comparing apples to oranges. If you feel the need to compare artists, then please do keep them in the same genre - Abstract art.

I hope you are able to redirect your anger and frustrations. Learning the truth and waking up is very stressful. If you wake up and remain angry, you gain nothing and are missing the bigger picture. I have done nothing but stayed on-topic to your direct statements; ego or not, in a result to help curb your negative vibe. Even the most fierce opponents can converse in mutual respect before a battle. Control your rage.

I am a Christian, I am a Jew, I am a Muslim and a Hindu. I am a Buddhist, a Luciferian, a Sun worshipper, and a pagan.
If you limit yourself to one church, one belief, one book, or one atheism, you have imposed limits on yourself. Just because one quotes from a book does not confine them to any ideology. You'll learn that in time too if you get past your anger and frustration. Negativity only breeds separation.


If your anger to waking up has now blinded you to the point that you wish to respond in more negativity, I will wish you Peace and humbly discontinue this conversation. I mean my words in the spirit of uplifting, not ego-battling. Peace to you.

Here is why.

www.raisethehammer.org...


I just watched "Who the SNIP Is Jackson Pollock?" a funny, lively, documentary about a feisty old lady who inadvertently buys a Pollock at a thrift shop for $5 and goes on a mission to have it authenticated. A scientist / art specialist from Montreal eventually proves, through fingerprints, paint samples, and style, that the canvas is, without doubt, a Pollock original.

Preposterous, pretentious wankers from the art world, who claim their expertise superior to forensic evidence, won't have it, though, and reject any notion the work is Pollock's. One "expert," who has millions tied up in Pollock's schlock, gets up close and personal with the canvas before saying, " ... it doesn't look like a Pollock, it doesn't feel like a Pollock, it doesn't sing like a Pollock."


(I tried to keep it official like you asked.) Art critics couldnt even tell an authentic Pollock. They had to use normal forensic science to prove it. You know why? Because the only thing that makes Pollocks art stand out is the drama of Pollock himself combined with the power of a few people in the art world who made it be so by virtue of their approval, much like this little girls paint on a canvas.

The fact they didnt know she was four years old when they deemed her "genius" is not to her credit. It is merely evidence that art critics look for genius in anything they dont understand. Had they known she was four when they first saw her work, I would be willing to bet they would not have given it that label. Now, however, they are stuck. And their own reputation as critics are wrapped up in continuing the sham.

I would love to see if THEY were able to pick her "genius" out of a crowd of mere mortals splattering paint on a canvas and then sticking little faces and stuff on it.

She's like a miniature Jackson Pollock! I expected to see a little girl wildly throwing paint onto a canvas, but she actually looked like she was thinking about where to place the squiggles and colors. I can't wait to see what she can do when she gets older.


We forget how much thought we put into our actions as children.

Adults are not always as wise as they believe.

I actually expect her to fade away as she becomes an adult because she will be beat down by people like the posters that can't see the difference in her creations from those of children who have already had their creative brilliance dulled by the adults around them.

Having fun without expectation conquers all.

Namaste.

the point he is making is that "abstract" shouldnt be a genre...

i could take a **SNIP** in the toilet and call it abstract, does that make it art?

Beautiful post ladySkadi.

Sort of makes me wish I would have had a big studio,and the extra money for all the paint ,for my children at that age.

I think all children have great creative energy,and I would have loved to have some huge paintings like those, done by my very own lil piccasos.

I do have some stuff they did in grade school , that was basically the same idea , but on a much smaller scale,and not on canvas.

None the less,they are framed and treasured...hanging on my walls.

yea yea, "holier than thou" again...

you wouldn't know "spirit" if it slapped you in the butt

i dont care how many religions you worship

and if you were aware of the corruption and manipulation that i am, you would be frustrated too

but there is a difference between frustration and anger

even the happiest of all people can be frustrated at times

so don't try to use that as reasoning for the assumption that i am unhappy and full of negativity

you may learn some day that positivity comes in many forms, yes even in constructive criticism

This is absolutely correct, but Illusionsaregrander has a point as well.

She is creating work that the art community finds beautiful. That's fantastic, and I wish only the best for her.

But to call her a "prodigy" is a real stretch. To my eyes, all this really proves is that abstract art is so simplistic and uninspired that it can indeed be created by a 4-year-old, and nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Her work is beautiful to look at, but just like Pollock's work, it lacks the provocative essence that turns simple expressions of color on canvas into something that can truly be considered masterful.

"Art" is anything you want it to be. I have seen much worse be called 'art' and be praised by the artistic community. In all honesty, the community tends to have its head up its ass. The girl is having fun doing what she is doing, and that's all that really matters.

For a truly eye-opening experience, I would recommend everyone see Banksy's film Exit Through the Gift Shop.
