Crappy "Modern Art" Feb. 4th, 2013 @ 04:20 PM

What is this? Did someone actual get a degree in art to do this?

Call it abstract, call it surreal, say I don't understand it, whatever. But I'm pretty sure this is just paint-splattered crap.

I'm okay with abstract art. I'm even okay with art that doesn't resemble much of anything. But this takes no talent, no coodination, no nothing. What kind of talents went into making this? A little blending? Drawing that leaf?

I can't believe people buy these things and put them on display. Post your thoughts on this "modern art" fad.

The painting/picture/whatever depicted in your post is a space filler to tie a room together and keep the wall from looking empty, not a piece of art to be looked at and appreciated. It's bland and neutral enough to fit in with many different casual home decor styles. I wouldn't call it modern art, or even art at all, since it was probably designed specifically to be sold on store shelves.


It made more sense in my head.

I think this is a much more accurate answer as to what this piece of art is.

I went to a museum once where they had a showcase of modern art.

One of them was just a huge piece of checkered red and white table cloth.

Pointless.

Exactly.

Clearly it wasn't really made for the purpose of being something deep, meaningful and moving. It's more something made to blend in with modernly designed living rooms and I think it looks decent in that regard. Furthermore, I'm not sure if they really hire top class artists to do jobs like this.

The day you can understand a single stroke in that painting is the day you can start judging, but only that paint stroke.

It's 2deep4u, deal with it.

Anything is art if the artist has declared it art.

That looks more like typical bland dentist waiting room-type decoration than the kind of actually thought-out abstract "modern art" willfully ignorant people like to complain about.

Art is pretty much useless. It's all 2deep4u shit now. You can jerk off onto a buddah statue you bought at Family Dollar and it counts as art.

It's kinda weird, I'll give it that, but there are bigger things from modern art to rage about.
At least, this took some effort, some people just do practically nothing and call it art, like the guy who shat and pissed on a crucifix.
Andy Worhol did some pretty stuff.

I'll admit, this is really lame, but there are bigger piles of shit in museums.

Speaking of piles of shit, I once saw a piece called "captain shit and the legend of the seven stars".

When I think of modern art, I think of something weird or something random, that takes talent and effort to make.

You do understand why this piece of art in particular is so important and revolutionary to the world of art, right ? OP is judging but without proper knowledge of art. And I'm not talking master degree in art history here, just... basic knowledge. There is a strong critic of rationality in a lot of modern art, so looking for easy aesthetics, obvious message or anything that you MTV era kids look for when looking at a painting or a picture, is just retarded.
