Sometimes you’re just casually reading along or laughing at a show or caught up in a movie and a quirky concept, brain-twisting discovery or philosophical dilemma grabs your mind and won’t let go. You push, pull and plead for sleep, as the idea keeps turning in your head. And just when you think it’s let you be, you find your mind’s wandered back and tripping on the concept again. This page is for brain-twists….Yours and mine.
Seapunk2 says: I get stuck on many things, but the one I’ve been stuck on for some time is, WHAT IS ART? I get disturbed when I see wonderful art go unrecognized and “art” that is no more than a stupid idea, in my opinion.
So, WHAT IS ART?
Here’s my reply to Seapunk2 when she posed the question in comments: Yeah, that’s a great one! Was just talking to another blogger about how an art teacher told her son he was ‘doing art wrong’. I think teachers can teach you technique, but only your soul knows your art. That seems to make it all ultimately subjective and open. For expression, anyway. But then there’s the real meat of your question….Judging and Elevating art. Whose opinion matters and why?
What do you think?
