Black Square and Red Square - Kasimir Malevich, 1915Welcome back, pauper, we sort of missed you. There are no rules, per se, but if you could communicate through art on this thread, it would be appreciated.

QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnIs this art? it is coolI would put Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, and M.C. Escher in the "artists" column because their work transcended both utilitarian purpose and the craft of their respective media to say something deeper about humanity. For example, Wright's "Falling Waters" (shown by Cuchulainn) provides a powerful statement about the relationship between humanity and the natural world. The building is both tightly integrated (physically) with the natural world and visually isolated from that world in a way that creates tremendous tension between organic and rectilinear forms.Is art what art critics say is art or is there a deeper definition of art that exists outside of a small body of self-appointed guardians of the field?

Nichols Canyon - David Hockney, 1980QuoteOriginally posted by: Traden4AlphaIs art what art critics say is art or is there a deeper definition of art that exists outside of a small body of self-appointed guardians of the field?Art critics serve the art market the way Moody's served the credit market. If you can't form an opinion, they'll give you one.Corrupt, myopic, and not a little self serving.No regulators for front running in the art world.

They bring the disjointed perspectives of cubism to a new medium and provide an added layer of time."Scrabble, Hollywood, 1" -- David Hockney -- 1983

I love David Hockney's work. Especially the swimming pools, with the way he explores different methods of capturing the surface of the water depending on the style and angle of his paintings.Brilliant stuff.
