You weren't forced to look at this crap for hours and hours and hours on three seperate days because of your art course at school. Weeping

I spent several years going to art school, so yeah, I sort of was. Maybe not these particular things, but things that also did not impress me. I had to go to the student galleries and attempt to appreciation lame "installations" for hours on end, and then discuss them. Looking at the installation art was probably the low point of my entire life. It was usually something like black paper stapled to all the walls and "deep" phrases written on it in fluorescent crayon, and then it was all lit by blacklight...

But I mean, now I am able to just look away.

RE: Modern Art
I've only recently been getting into art. So I'm not familiar with many "modern" artists. But I quite like Mark Ryden.

You have to understand the art in this, understand the deepest meaning. What did HE want to tell us with this masterpiece?

Of course you do. I'm sure you've spent many an hour jerking it to that painting. Laugh out load

RE: Modern Art
Okay since we (and by we I mean Nevermore) decicided to post stuff we like, here is my favorite modern (not modern the art movement) piece of art. I wanted to buy a signed print, but unlike some of his other stuff which was going for < $800 this was going for about 3 grand, and I was unwilling to part with that much cash for it...maybe one of these days.

Anyhow I like a lot of Alex Greys work though much of it is based on religion and spirituality. He is just a cool artist.

RE: Modern Art
First of all you don't *have* to buy it, or *own* it to appreciate it.
You "experience" it. It's not 100 % "rational".

I liked my piano teacher the most cuz he used to give me little lectures about the periods in which stuff was written, and why things were written the way they were. What you see and hear speaks volumes about what's valued, and assumed as "interesting", and "right", and beautiful", and bla bla bla.

No doubt, but I'd love to have in hanging on the wall. Been my favourite painting for many years and I still enjoy looking at it.
