    This is a great documentary in general, but go to 7:14 to hear Francis Bacon's opinions of Rothko. If you go back to 6:42 he talks a bit about Pollock.



    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    havent seen the bacon,... documentary. but i might have a look now.
    ive been watching the "this is modern art" lately.
    had quite an influence. especially the first part.

    in my opinion contemporary art shall reflect society. some people reflect art itself nowadays without realy trying to find a new way of expressing themselfes.
    as i see things art supported society to what its become in a huge way. alot of what had been recognised by artists found its place in merchandise (like it was with praising the upper class ages back) impression due to certain colours and shapes and so forth. the realistic part found its place in the movie and games industry. i dont want you to slap me now and tell me to leave ca, but i got to say that both is trying to manipulate or what movies and games is concerned trying to close our eyes from whats realy happening in the world. of course you can decide what to watch and play but to be honest. social critics arent a games purpose mainly.
    games are somehow a new kind of environmental art (evolving from the 1960s or something
    and if good or bad according to everything that has shown up in art history a kind of synthesis of arts (like what some artists years back also liked to accomplish)

    Here are some modern/contemporary pieces I really like. I omitted impressionism, art nouveau, and surrealism because I think that stuff is among the more liked here.

    Francis Bacon (I think a lot of people here like his work):

    Duchamp (say what you will about The Fountain and his later works, but I think this is a really cool piece):

    Edvard Munch:

    Jackson Pollock (his drawings are actually really cool and pretty surrealistic):

    Rothko (I know many hate him, but I'm a fan.):

    Chuck Close (Seeing as these are screenprinted it's just insane to think how long they took to make):

    Damien Hirst (I also really like his splatter paintings. These are all butterflies, by the way. Morbid and sort of horrible but beautiful and amazing none the less.):

    Juane Quick-To-See Smith (Native American Neo-Expressionist. I really like these.):

    There really isn't anything to discuss here. Either you hold that any one sentence review (not necessarily written in any understandable language or alphabet) of Moby-Dick is just as valid and valuable a novel as the work of Melville....or you don't.
    Funny link...
    So is the link in the link., with the art guy defending the works.

    I don't know who/what is worse; the defender or the defendee...

    "Night Angel", by Ben Young

    Alex says: "The childlike element of scrawling is a spontaneous reaction to what you find around you. Often the problem with people's expectations of art is that they're expecting something ingenious – the journalistic value of art isn't enough. They want surplus value, they want sweat off the brow, a unique, new and seductive aesthetic. But I quite like this canvas. I think there's palpably a lot of labour in it. I like the colour. It has a nice aesthetic correlation, and in that sense, it's considered. I think historically, it's particularly novel."
