It seems that many famous artists try hard to be silly, put poetic meaning in pointless shit, offensive, and half-assed. The impressionist movement in the early 20th century ruined centuries of artistic wonder of each generation of artists trying to out perform the last one with higher standards. Now we have paint splatter artists like Jackson Pollock, and readymade artists like Marcel Duchamp and his worthless urinal.

 

No, their is no deeper meaning to your colored squares or your splattered finger paintings that took you less than 10 minutes to create. And no, there is no "deeper meaning" behind it either. Your fucking paint splatters don't symbolize the plight of dirt farmers in Venezuela, it's just paint splatters for fuck sake.

 

Oh, you think putting a Jesus Christ crucifix in a vat of your own urine is edgy and offensive? That's fine, but why won't the art establishment allow any drawings of the prophet Muhammad? That's right, the government will cut off all your funding if you do anything politically incorrect :bomb:

 

Readymade art is the worst. Readymade art is when an artist buys a product at the store, gives it a name, puts it on display (sometimes after painting it a different color, sometimes doing nothing to it at all), and gets paid thousands of dollars for it. For example Marcel Duchamp's Urinal or Snow Shovel.

 

 

 

 

Hell, I could do a readymade myself: Behold my red brick:

I call this piece "Cell"

 

[Speaking in the tone of a snooty art snob]: "Eh-hemm... Cell is presented here as a red brick. Red brick are singular building blocks that create manmade structures when they converge together. Cells are biological building blocks that when they converge together, create multicellular life forms such as plants and animals. The redness of "Cell" represents blood, the fluid of life. Blood is life. Pathways and buildings constructed from red bricks represnt the toil and bloodshed of the working class proletariat who builds these structures to keep society intact. Without buildings we cannot have society. Without blood, there is no life."

 

And there you have it.

A pair of reading glasses was left on the floor of an art gallery, and museum goers mistook it as Modern Art

Visit your local Art Museum, pay attention to the placard next to the artworks... size, typeface, cardstock, border, etc. etc.

 

 

Go home and make a bunch of them that say,

 

 

Thermostat

by (your name here)

(make up a date)

 

 

Sculpture

 

Materials used:

Plastic, Bi-metal strip, Small circuit board, Various electrical components.

 

 

Go back to the museum and carefully place them next to all the thermostats.... Make sure the guards don't see you.

 

 

It's art because I'm an artist and I say it's art.

I have learned that one can make an excellent depiction of what one sees, and that is a skill.....and many people cannot do that.....but, one can take a photograph of the same thing......a gifted artist will make you feel something and see something in a new light or in a way you never thought about before......I like art in every category. ..the art that makes me feel something and think about it....I dislike much art in every category also.....The beauty or art is in the beholder.....and we all see things differently.

I bet when you looked in the mirror this morning, your first thought was "Ugh, another hideous piece of modern art"
