Recently I wemt to Chicago. i visited the art museum when i was down there. While the day as a whole was fun, besides all the walking, but the art bothered me. i did not enjoy it. not all of it at least. art defines cultures and changes over time with people. some art is specific enough that it can be associated with one artist and some is general and doesnt even have any recognizable artists.
Who desides if something is good art or bad art? who desides that some oil on canvas or a big block of marble is worth tens or hundreds or thousands or even millions of dollars? to me art has to be simple. either make the world look simple or the actual design or layout simple. the things that i liked were like the Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass, that little wheat grass pattern or whatever it is, or the roman busts of the dictators or whatever they are. the whole thought of looking deeper than the surface for me doesnt make sence, and i honestly dont like it. like the pointalism in the video, theres way too much stuff goin on, way too many dots and the thought of actually painting with dots instead of strokes makes me frustrated because after awhile id lose patience. photos or painting with the red white and blue thing frustrate me too, unless its the actual focus and not a subtlty.i like art that has soothing colors. art is supposed to bring beauty, so if the piece makes you cringe or confused, why bother painting it? if it shows starving orphan children in the streets on ny thats not art thats an awareness campaign. my favorite thing i saw there was a painting by George Cope called Civil War Regalia of Major Levi Gheen McCauley.
i have no idea why its my favorite, it just is. i dont see any deep meaning i just like it. i guess nobody's opinion on art can be wrong, and even though i feel like nobody can convince me to change my opinions on it, id like to hear yours.
