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.
You are separating, I am not. God is the Supreme Artist. Music, painting, sculpture .. they are the language of the Spirit. They are all His art.
Hi manatita44, "They are all His art." Yes I agree he is the creator of creation, not an imitator seeking sensation. Thank you for your insight and thoughtful clarification. It makes me wonder am I putting art on a pedestal when it's just the norm?
You are ok, Gareth. Just being practical and perhaps relating to something you know and love. Times are changing and people are seeing and doing things differently. It is not my field. I simply observe. Much peace.
Hi, I think I live in decadence while 3 quarters of the world live in hunger, war and pain, I make pretty useless stuff when I need to be more sane, many die of hunger and I need to do more or lose my brain to the wrong others for profit and gain.
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.
PS. ha. ha, we seem to have an abundance of genus nowadays as well.
LOL, yes, everyone seems to think of themselves as original artists these days (i.e. Justin Bieber)! I loved your question, it really made me think for a change; thanks for posting this today.
You are welcome it's a two way street and thanks to you again.
Panting for his fix of deprivation
Blinded in a vast discolouration
Vulgar repetitious replication
Craving for celebrity transformation
LOL, love it! Whoever created him, they created a monster.
UMm, I tend to think he is influenced by his environment, a victim of an abusive system, the music Ind has a long track record, along with an entertainment business, the show must go on at any cost, all in plain sight, grown ups hold all the power.
Absolutely, he's merely a product of corporate commercialism, going much the way so many child entertainers have, completely exploited and prostituted to a consumer-driven society. And he, along with the rest of us are led to believe he's original.
HI Neall, thanks for your contribution and sharing your thoughts.
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.
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 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 Gareth. There is faux jewelry and faux fur, everyone knows it's not the real thing, but is still accepted...so I say faux art is a good term, nobody gets hurt.
Faux reminds me of this, in Viz Magazine, Elvis Presley Dambusters Clock Plate of Tutankhamun, http://www.flickr.com/photos/norbet/5709225239/in/... so funny.
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.
All these well intentioned people tried to participate,and no one understood your question. If no one understands, maybe you had something else in mind? Re-wording, being more specific maybe.
Headline you could be correct, that's a concern with these comments, they allow too few words to say enough. Once questions are made they can't be changed and shouldn't be, that would make it unreal but now I need a comment from you to finish my bit
Hi the girls, cool your allowed to disagree and there an't much wrong with my imagination compliment accepted. Thanks for trying.
Hi my brother Gareth.
I feel for you. Some people take these things quite seriously. Seems like you opened a can of something there. Peace again. Keep smiling!
Bro mana, I personally think most people only read the headline and it infuriated them so they went on the defensive, they became blind to the context but some did read the whole context so tried to answer it. Headlines work the way they are meant.
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.
It was Pollack
I get them mixed up.
Hi Lor's Stories, thank you for getting back to me with that information I was curious and think abstract camouflage is very similar to paint splats, and the only real skill is convincing somebody that it is worthy of recognition, a good example.
Hi tomy101, well I think you didn't even read the question and just jumped on the defensive and you won't be able to uinsult yourself now either, pity. http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/01/art-is-useles... he made his living out of art.
