Essential-Fine-Art

It’s weird to me because the whole idea you need to sound smart around art feels unnatural. Do you like the thing? Share the thing. Call attention to the thing. Everyone look at the thing! You shouldn’t have to write some thought provoking shit or even think anything smart. Just like “Yes, I like this.”

Essentially, that’s ALL fine art is. The rest is romanticizing  and glamorizing. You can make clever and creative art, or you can not, and just make an empty pretty picture with no substance whatsoever. However, there is a ton of context, and if that’s lost on the viewer, that’s okay… unless you’re pretentious.
