Piperfawn, I don't get the second piece you posted. It doesn't speak to me at all. It looks like a crumpled up piece of paper. If it is twenty feet tall then I would say it is art. Or if it is made from metal. I would have to look at it. But if it is just a crumpled up piece of paper I say it is garbage - literally.

"That painting invokes epipleptic fits, nothing more."

In you it does. But in me it makes my mind move in wonderful ways.

"markus i live in the middle of Art, is kinda my job."

From your lack of knowledge on the subject I am guessing your job is sitting in a chair guarding the pieces. According to you art is only what you appreciate. Anything else is just done for money even if someone else appreciates it. That is very closed minded. It's not the worst thing I have heard on the subject. That was from a first year college student that told me you can't be an artist unless you have an art degree.

Mr. Rooney, you are not wrong. You are just crotchety.

Markus


So you must be fascinated also by that , is legit but is not Art, is just bricolage, or if you want pure aesthetic. Art is aestethic filled with a message and a soul.

"Can you explain me what the second painting transmits to your sensations?"

It gets my mind moving and pulls me in to explore my imagination. I have a mind that likes patterns and there are so many to look at as I scan through the piece. Something about the yellow really drew me in also.

if i watch the paint of the lady i can feel the wind, i can smell the scent of the salty water,i can hear the noise of the waves and my view can go deep on the scene... i would like also to kiss the neck of the lady. The second one is flat, no emotions just a mess that someone buy for the name putted on it and that most probably after few years will finish in some basement covered in dust.

Out of the two pieces you showed piperfawn I would put a print of the later in my house. I would never put a print of the lady by the sea in my house. It doesn't speak to me. How can someone from Europe not understand art?

Public art has always attracted public vitriol. Rooney talks about modern art being created, although that movement had its peak when he was a very young man. I suspect that is when he stopped caring about fine art. I for one enjoy crop circles the most as public art or land art. Makes me lol that folks think aliens made it.

I didn't realize how widespread the paint-a-fiberglass-animal trend is. If you haven't had it your city, it's a charitable program where white molded animals are painted by various artists (and sometimes amateurs), displayed all over the place, and then auctioned off. They range from inspired to "you must be kidding."
In my city, we've had orcas, bears, and eagles so far.

New Orleans has these fish everywhere.



They're the least interesting thing about this city imo.

@ burbclaver - here is the Scripps Turd for you
You don't have to thank me. Just wash your hands when you're done.

Art? Or just bad taste so you can get publicity?

San Diego has Okeanos, a giant turd, which took $40,000 just to flush it from the front of Scripps hospital and hide it on John J. Hopkins Drive. On the whole though, I like public art.

When I was ~10 yrs. old, I visited a large art museum with my family. They were short a tour guide, so our group was conducted by the curator.

We came to a modern painting -- a 10' x 10' square with a few blocks of bright colors and a diagonal line across it -- and the curator dutifully told us all about the painting and the artist. While everyone was "oohing" and "ahhing," I walked to the front of the group and said to the curator, "I don't get it."

He replied in a hushed tone, "Neither do I."

drat you, Rooney. Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean it's not art.

wolladude nope art is not in the eye of the beholder, art is something that have an universal spirit that evryone can feel. If i put my feces in a can and i call it ART i'm just doing a provocation, i'm not doing art. Art is born as an universal language, from the paints of the cavemans to the statues on temples, if you vomit some color on a piece of papaer sayng this represent the time you hit your finger with an hammer that is not art is just you "personal" and "intimistic" way of doing crap that don't have nothing to share with an "universal" message.

Art is art when the artist claims it is, wether it is good or bad art is in the eye of the beholder.

You may not like it, but it's still art!
