What the fuck is art actually, I know it’s a highly subjective term, but still please..
I mean excuse me for being some fucking back water redneck but what is artistic about that?
Is THIS art?
As I mentioned above, art is a subjective thing, but still please, isn’t art supposed to be something beautiful, possibly mystical and pleasing to the cognitive senses?
Art has evolved or devolved since post-modernism and the advent of ‘abstract’ art, some of which I can appreciate like Salvador Dali[/url]. If art has become something which is to shock, or evoke any kind of emotion, then well yes certainly this is art, but is that hat art is intended to be..
The classical definitions for art being..The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium. High quality of conception or execution, as found in works of beauty; aesthetic value.
Another leader in this area is the famous Damien Hurst, notably his ‘Away from the flock‘ piece as seen below.
A lamb preserved in formaldehyde.
Surely this is more suited to a biology expo rather than an art gallery?
So if I want to be an artist, I just have to evoke any emotion possible in the people viewing my ‘art‘ including repulsion, disgust or plain shock. Is this what art has become? Something devoid of beauty?
Some of weird porn fetish scat shit disgusts me, does that mean it’s art aswell?
Where do we draw the line?
What is art to you, what does art mean to you?
For me if you want to see some beautiful art, by my definition check out http://eye.box.sk/, to me that is amazing.
Peace, and for now, out.
