swirlygirl Thought of the day: right to judge art (26) RE: Thought of the day: right to judge art 19 Mar 02

I think a lot of things are considered art because they express the sentiments/techniques in a way which critics deem to be good representations of the style....

There're a lot of artists who I can't stand like Van Gogh and Monet, but I can appreciate. I just wouldn't want one hanging in my house, if you know what I mean...

I can appreciate the technique, the meaning, the thought and sentiments behind the work....and sometimes this can only be gained through an understanding of the artists's life, whatever medium they choose to express themselves in...
