    Here's the thing ..
    I saw the artist for a piece .. explaining what he did ..
    when I pointed out that Hurricane Ivan did it far better to my fence ..
    That Artist seemed to be a bit 'peeved'
    (guess that one never lived through a Hurricane!)

    (ah, well .. at least I made my point .. for his piece certainly was not worth what he was trying to get people to pay .. I got that for free when Hurricane IVAN went over my area!)


    And by the way, I do artworks myself now too ..
    in terms of sculpture .. I'm towards the abstract (given my Vision Impairment/Blindness)

    I generally don't like abstract modern art particularly if it is dominated by randomness such as a Pollack or Klee. But, some of it can incorporate interesting design or mood.

    I love art in general!! My mind set pulls me towards more surreal abstract art.

    I don't have to 'get it' to enjoy it. That's the nifty thing about art. Van Gogh painted the majority of his work while tripping balls on mushrooms. But you don't have to trip balls on shrooms to appreciate it.

    Art for arts sake. and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some modern art I like. I enjoy surrealists such as Dali & Miro. I am not crazy about such abstract artists such as Jackson Pollock.

    i like picasso's works and dali's, too, but i have no clue what causes people to express an idea or opinion or viewpoint in such a distorted way. and i dam sure dont understand what they are trying to say without a translator.

    What's not to get?

    With modern art, you look at it and if it appeals to you, you like it. If it doesn't appeal to you, you don't like it.

    I only consider it to be art when its exceptional and I don't have the artistic talent to do it myself.

    Most modern art is visually cool, and it doesn't really matter if I always get it. Some things that have labeled "art" in modern times, actually is not art at all. While it may be an expression of someone's view, that in itself does not make art.

    I like GOOD modern art (like Dali) that is very cerebral. I kinda figure any good artist can paint a bowl of fruit, and then everyone sits back and goes..."cool apple", and spends the next hour pretensiously discussing technique. Modern Art (if just not pure trite) is inviting understanding.

    It truly depends on the piece, to what degree it seems "beautiful" to me. i find most abstract art looks like garbage ... to me. Geometric art like the sculpture depicted is beautiful.

    Most art forms are created, by artists, using different mediums, and it is their projection/interpretation of what's in front of them. It is up to the artist to take that, and make it interesting to the viewer....

    The whole idea is to take the observer to another place. If you misinterpret the exhibit then you merely went to your own place you've created and missed the artists point. That's why I stick to easy to understand paintings or sculpture.

    Modern art is painted by people with no skill, admired by people with no taste and bought by people with no sense.

    I've seen some modern art that was cool such as the chrome dome in Chicago. I've seen other modern art that was rusted sheets of thick steel planted on it's edge. Anybody with the equipment to lift it could have been a professional artist and made some big bucks off the taxpayers!

    But I wonder, when this style becomes outdated, what will succeed it?
