>>44329453 As a former art history major, all modern art is a scam, it's on purpose to make money, and only the mentally ill don't understand this and take it super seriously. It's an industry that operates exclusively on feels.
After my years in art class, I come to realize to define art, is the same thing as proclaiming any religion or secular understanding in the universe is the one true way of understanding it. Art is as indefinable as the tastes of humans is infinite.
We will try to say "This is not art" or "This is art" but we must ultimately recognize that there is a line between what we ourselves find appealing and what a society, group, government claims is appealing. I personally view God as the greatest artist, as to have not only created such a great masterpiece that we call life, but to also have it change and paint itself at the same time.
That being said I also retain the right to say what I find good and what I find as utter shit.
I always listened to that part and seeing his cold blank stare when he said that, him being a politician no less, always set alarms blaring in my head. When a politician of any sort says "There are a great many things that needs to be erased," No matter what part of the political spectrum they are on, always makes me uneasy.
Occiasionally art should entertain. Illustration, in my opinion, does not fill the same function as fine art, but it is the only sector of the art world that values practical skill in composition, anatomy, light, etc.
Up until the 20th century art was about religious allegory, history, and life drawing and these goals were what artists had in mind.
This is a painting by Joseph Siffred Duplessis of Christoph Willibald Gluck, at one time the most famous composer in Europe, and one of Mozart's main inspirations. The painting shows Gluck working out melodies at a clavichord showing the precise moment a brilliant new subject appears in his mind, in a way a photograph never could. It celebrates the ideals of art, the genius of the creative mind and the joy of individual accomplishment.
I guess that was too broad of me to say. I guess it depends on my mood. I tend to prefer the art of cultures alien to the West. I always found their uniqueness to the often collective western view in how art and paintings should be done.
I tend to prefer the more fantastical or creative to the realistic depictions. But than again, pics like shown here do give me a liking for the urban night life and cyberpunk feels.
I'm not an artist and it's probably not an entirely fair definition: But for me art needs some semblance of technical mastery.
Your creative vision may govern what you -want- to do, but your technical skills will always limit what you -can- do, lack of technical mastery inhibits expression, someone who can only draw stick figures would never be able to express turmoil or suffering to the extent that a skilled artist could.
So as a ground rule (and the reason I hate modern art): If a child could have made it, it's not art.
