What do you think, I think art is useless?


Do you think the word Art no longer has any real meaning. The word Art seems to be used to describe just about anything, because of its ambiguity I think it has become a meaningless word but never mined me, what do you think?

    Hi manatita44, it is useful, thanks, but your interpretation seems to getting close to art being God " Art encompasses all things, and indeed life itself" isn't it just a word without true meaning unlike, music, painting, sculpture or nothing.

    Hi Valene, yes that's more like a thoughtful answer and plenty to think about that I hadn't considered, thank you for your thoughtful contribution.

    Gareth.

    PS. ha. ha, we seem to have an abundance of genus nowadays as well.

    Hi stuff4kids, ha, ha, I am not sure you understood the question, I think many things are beautiful but I was specifically thinking about the word not the outcomes. Thanks for your contribution and sharing your thoughts.

    Gareth.

    Hi DaffodilSky, music and writing as well as visual feces all fall under the same category that means nothing because it is too ambiguous, they can all be beautiful but they all have their own terms, individuality, until the art word comes out.

    Yes faux an interesting description, faux art, money and intelligence, not that it is particularly directed at any individual or yourself as you seem to have some kind of grip on substance. Thanks for the clarification and your time.

    Thanks for noticing the picture and taking the time to make comment, "art can be much the "Black Hole" or bottomless pit that sucks everything inside its infinite chasm." nice description.

    Hi forevernatural, "not in your local gallery and dance studio, see in the big museums and leading theaters, not in your local gallery and dance studio." That's another twist, high art and popular art, the unmade bed or the taxidermist? Thanks.

    Hi ananceleste, I have even cried real tears over my own work and enough others have also for me to know how emotive it can all be but that wasn't the question, human feces is also called art when messed about with. Thanks for trying. Gareth.

    Hi Lor's Stories, "Warhol with just he splats on it," is that Warhol and not Jackson Pollack, they have Camouflage Self-Portrait, Warhol screen print and No. 22, Jackson Pollack which is paint splats, not that it matters I get your point, thanks.

    Hi dreamseeker2, "lies in the eyes of the beholder, eh?" it sure does just about as subjective as subjective gets, thanks for the contribution. Gareth.
