Be fooled by art
I am no expert academic or scholar of fine art, but I think that only makes me even more qualified to tell you that I find most abstract wall art hideous pieces of crap.
It causes me displeasure to find a thoroughly repugnant painting, as repulsive as it is bewildering where you would think a pleasant decorative item would be more appropriately located.
Now, I believe abstract art does not fool anyone except art scholars and the artists themselves. The rest of us know that it is bullshit. The rest of us recognize that there is a very scanty difference between the painting described as “a vivid exposition of bold strokes and vital figures posed in provocative postures which allude to violent memories while simultaneously evoking spirits of blah blah” and a skidmark in your drawers.
So I really don’t expect a lot of sense from these things and I try to ignore them. They only really offend me when i hear of how much they cost, then they get really sickening. To think that millions were paid for some spastic, jerking about completely randomly all over canvas throwing colours up and down with no sense or reason? That chafes at the sensitive man's sense of rightness.
Is it just me or does anyone else feel the same way about abstract art?
