"Take Convergence, by Jackson Pollock. I'm sure that this is the 100% biggest offender on PJW's list of terrible art. But do you see the textures on the canvas? The layers of colors intersecting and complimenting and contrasting each other? He is looking at art in the same way one looks at a photograph. But that is an incorrect way of viewing it. Art is art for the sake of itself." -Peter

Lol. Yes--truly awe inspiring 'art'. You would believe anything you were indoctrinated into for your time if you can believe that
Thanks from Sabcat

I personally wouldn't lump Pollock in w/ these "artists" he had a very unique approach and did actually possess skill that can be seen. IMO there is a big difference between his stuff and say Picasso s cubism and the postmodernist trash the PJW is talking about.

There is a great article i read (i will see if i can find it later) about the original garbage artists. Where they would make their piles of garbage to watch the people and their reactions. To them the people were the art and not the piles of trash. So if we look at it from that perspective then what are the people who are mimicking this medium? Have they themselves become an extension of the art? Are those artists of the past laughing at them?

I don't know but i do know that i despise postmodernism in every manifestation outside of philosophical thinking.
