The more you learn about arts history the easier it is to understand.

Thank you for sharing this.
I believe that creative expression is a wonderful reflection of society... worts and all.

best wishes

Oh my. Some, but not all, of the art just immediately brings to mind the following quote (which is often incorrectly attributed to P.T. Barnum):
"It's quite true there's a fool born every minute. It's also quite true they don't die that fast."

You are too good to me. To show me these pictures. Holy moly! That looks like such a good time.

Oh dear! The dead animal assemblage is even more hideous than I visualized, I am not cool enough to even attempt to "get" it or the pink trashbag bunny rabbit. I do like the things in the 4th and 5th photos, and the blah blah blah sign is pretty cool. Picture six looks like a nasty stain you might find on your beige burber if you let a cow spend the night in your house (gasp).

Thanks for the little tour dahhhhling.

I'm with Vicki. I am getting more and more weary of exactly what she mentions: pretentiousness. I see it here in Toronto too. Then again, I know it's nothing new; always has been around and...sigh...always will be. And I'm with Deborah too .... there is a giggle there as well, although I'm sure I'm "not supposed" to find it all sooooo amusing!

Hmmmmmmm, how do I like it? Not so much, but the cow gave me a good giggle! Wishing you a lovely Sunday! **kisskiss** Deb

"Visually appealing" -- oh, my *dear*, that is NOT the point of Art!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any four-year-old can make something that is visually appealing.

No, no, we must have something that makes people ill when they view it. Or at the very least baffles them totally.

True Art can't be accessible, you know.

No true Artist makes things that any random fool can understand/enjoy!!!

If people don't have to exert effort to understand and appreciate ... well, it just can't be Art.

Don't you know.


The pretentiousness of some people who think they are artists leaves me wondering whether I am more amused or more filled with ennui...................
