Ever been walking through the city and in front of the Court House there’s a sculpture consisting of six or seven steel beams that are tangled together? Me too, and my thoughts immediately gravitate to: “how is this art?”
When I was in grade school, I hated art class. It was just a time to sit there and talk with friends, while the actual drawing and painting was just a chore, and quite frankly looked extremely bad for “art”, yet the teacher still considered it “art”. Now, in college, I’ve learned these have an official name. “Splatter paintings” are what they are referred to. The professor tells me that the reason these are so special is due to the process in which they were made. Okay? He grabbed a paint brush, dipped it in paint, and threw it at a canvas. So special.
But what about other people? What about you, maybe? Perhaps you look at these works deeper than I and see far more in them than I could ever imagine. Maybe you love these pieces and can help me out here.
Out of all the people in those art classes with me, am I alone in thinking this?
Yes? No? Maybe so? Check out these links for more examples of this “art” and enlighten me, please.
