    Thumbs down Modern Nart- does anyone actually like it?

    It has come to my attention lately that art gelleries are overflowing with modern art, or as i call it, nart. Is there anyone here who actually prefers modern art to traditional art that actually looks like something, not just somebodies 'idea'.

    ps how do you change the name of a thread? please answer thanks

    If people didn't like it, why would they be in so many galleries?

    Sheep are tasty..people...not so much. ...and I think JRR summed it up. Theres plenty of annoying/pointless realist art out there (cough...thomas kinkade..cough) So yeah, not all modern art is 35 polaroids of scrotums arranged to form a female symbo. I have to say I'm not a big fan of minimalism as it is too much of a stretch...I need more than some white blocks to be interested...I get it, its about space and structure and formal stuff, but that doesn't make it interesting. However I genuinely like the work of the Abrstract Expressionists, Futurists, and some of the really early abstract painters. Frantisek Kupka rocks my ass, as well as the abstract stuff by a guy named Stanton Mcdonald Wright. SMW came up with a system that equated the colors of the color wheel, to musical notes, and would base paintings arond keys of colors with chords and what not. I saw a major retrospective of his work in Raleigh a few years ago and was blown away. As far as more current stuff...I like anything that makes me think, and is visually interesting.

    Art fills many functions, up to and including providing decorative objects that exist merely to match people's sofas. I don't find anything about this to be objectionable or a threat to my own ideals or career.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Thomas Kinkade is a realist? I thought he is your fellow fantasy artist. Painting a gingerbread house, forbidden apple for two children from brothers Grimm's fairy tale .
