Life and Beauty
Contemporary art has been quite hard to understand, especially by the common man. It has become out of reach I think, because only those educated with the history of art and philosophy can understand. Even with the educated, not all of us can grasp of the contemporary art we seek to encounter in museums, theater or art gallery. So I think this poses a problem to artists. How can they be able to make their audience see the message in their art?
Of course we don't expect to grasp a message in its clear and understable form, and I guess this is part of art's definition. ..art poses questions and mysteries. I guess I have to accept that art can only be appreciated by the few, those who have a passion for it.
Life and beauty will always be key elements in the art that I prefer. I like to meditate on the nuances of these. That is why some forms of conceptual art are hard to appreciate, at least for me.
