    The article is titled "What Art Is and Where it Belongs" and it has nothing to do with impressionism or abstract art (directly). I posted it here because it has to do with Concept Art and maybe why this community came together. It is about freedom and belonging.

    @riceface: A lot of concept art is impressionist and/or abstract.

    And impressionist art is often quite impressive, too. Once you "get" the Impressionists you'll never see color the same again.

    Remember, folks....

    Abstract art isn't art in the past, isn't art in the present, and never will be in the future.
    To sum it up, abstract art isn't art.

    i agree with u whole heartedly, i hate jackson pollack... hes the worst offender.. i didnt' get his art no matter what artsy hipsters who can't draw tell you..

    i even watched a movie biography on him... and he still sucked.. he literally just splattered paint...

    abstract art is for people who can't paint so they try to find a shortcut and be rich

    at least thats my take

    Once upon a time I didn't think that Barry Windsor Smith was that much of a drawer or that Manet was that much of a painter. I got over it.

    And portrait artists are just meat cameras. And figurative artists are just machines cranking out information with no soul behind them. Herp derp.

    No no no....portrait drawing is a big challenge just to get the likeness, and figurative drawing is even a bigger challenge because of the complexity of the human form. I've always greatly admired anyone who can draw portraits or figures.

    For abstract art, though, all you need is a big white canvas, 5 pails of different colored paint and a big brush. Dip the brush into the 5 paints and flick them all over the canvas. When done, use your feet to smear everything up. Or get the cat to do the job. Frame it. Abstract "art", done. Laugh all the way to the bank with the US$500,000 you got from the art museum.

    Alright, you go ahead and do that, and come back and tell us about the half million you just made by "splattering" paint. Tell us how easy it was.

    Wow, if you were this shallow about abstract art, I'd hate to see how shallow you are about other things.

    I sincerely doubt that the point of this thread was to create a bashing on abstract art and it's qualities.

    Maybe people could put aside their prejudices and stop derailing this thread?
