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.
