I do this in mostly good fun, so please don't take offense lol.:
I created this for you in about 4 minutes, tell me it aint art!!
finally - someone with a sense of humor :-)
I'm not going to tell you it isn't art - I'm going to ask you: do you
think it's art? serious answer please
If I took this to an art gallery and sold it for thousands of dollars claiming to be an artist, what would you think then?
do you think anyone would buy it - for thousands?
ETA: I think Illusionsaregrander is trying to say that it's too forgiving (the abstract art world) in a sense where....well *anything* can be
claimed as "art" and there really isn't a standard when it comes to abstract art.
I don't think that's what Illusions was trying to say - I know that's what she was trying to say
(but I'd still like to hear her explanation) :-)
forgiving - how?
I went back and watched that video again Wookiep - just for you :-)
humor me - go watch it - you don't have to do the whole thing - stop at: 4:46, 5:57, 7:50 and 10:00
They're calling her the 'Prodigy of Color'. Do you wonder why?
Color isn't just about color - it's about color next to color, color on color, light/dark/pattern/space/negative space...balance, movement - it's a
language. Like music.
There are many theories - just about color. Their are theories about aesthetics. I was busy writing up a 10 page essay a while ago - when I realized
it was pointless. I also realized I was hungry and I couldn't think - so I stopped.
My point is - if you really could just whip out something - and then sell it for thousands - well, If anyone could do it - everyone would. And don't
think I haven't tried :-)
No - seriously - I have
Everyone says my four year old could do that - but why is everyone making such a fuss over this four year old if any four year old could do the same?
It takes more than pushy, conniving parents to get into a gallery - and there are plenty of pushy, conniving parents in this world. Why aren't there
more 4 year old girls showing their work?
I see it as scribbling, you see it as art. So be it!
Well - most artists hate when people say that - but I have to agree. Still - there are an awful lot of people in the art world full time that see
something in the work of this very young girl. Don't you wonder why?
I mentioned Mozart earlier - he was playing at three, composing at 5. His father was a musician. He was trotting his son around at a tender age and
showing off his skills. Was it abuse? Maybe it was - but I doubt it was difficult to convince Wolfie to practice. Even if you can force a child to
practice - you can't force them to compose.
Genius doesn't make an appearance only in musicians or mathematicians. But maybe it's easier to recognize in those two categories than it is in
If you don't see it, or if it just doesn't speak to you - fair enough. But that doesn't mean there's nothing there to see - it just isn't there
