What is Art Discussion
I make art for other people. Nothing is half as exciting, for me at least, as creating something and having other people appreciate it. I think that's why I like NG so much, where else can you get instant feedback on a grand scale?
I also like the process, and thinking about the ending. When I'm done working on a picture, it seem kind of useless to me...
I've never found words to be inadiquate for expression, so the idea of expressing things through art because that's the only way you can put it seems silly to me. How is menstrating on paper any clearer than simply writing "Feminisim," "Un-Sanitary," or "Disgusting" on the wall? Modern art usually ticks me off; sure, they say they're expressing something through art, but the only way it'll make sense is through them explaining it to you. True expression should need no explaination.
