I don`t think it`s about whether or not you or your three-year-old is capable of drawing/painting something similar as much as it`s about the artist expressing themselves and leaving some kind of impression on the viewer. Appearantly, they`ve done their job there because look--you`re talking about it.
Obviously different people are going to see it different ways and have different opinions about it. Some will like it while others won`t. I, for one, don`t particularly care for most of those paintings, but hey, that`s just MY opinion.
Oh and if you do decide to take my advice, you can leave Tate Modern as soon as you see the big spider thingie in the "lobby". You won`t miss anything. It`s the coolest thing in that hole.
Woa I totally thought I was the only one who thought like that about modern art. But thankfully there are others who have some sense. I will admit however that SOME madern art is good, but most of it is crap so...
"I like to think it represents the artist shining brightly upon his audience, inviting their praise and admiration, whilst stealing the light from those that pay for his overly-pretentious musings therefore funding his existance and promoting the growth of his art further and further up his own arse. Dragging his audience along with him, letting them bask in the warmth of his fame and wonder at the size of the price tag, forever deflecting them away from the fact that the actual piece of art is actually a piece of s***."
i couldn`t agree more
I don`t know. Whatever. I hate arrogant artists, but I hate "cynnical" laypeople who think they have the capacity to criticize even more. "AHURHURHURHURRRR, MY THREE-YEAR-OLD COULD DO BETTER!!!11!!1!!!"
Think about how stupid that sounds for a second.
I dunno, I just find conversations where everyone agrees with each other kinda boring.
it`s totally the truth, except to some bizarre loonies.
Saying modern art is stupid is like saying red is a bad color.
