I think it is expression or expressive linquistics ( communication)
subjective.

Begining to wonder if there's an conspiracy of art critics
a single photo bought in Germany ( not staged)
of a river bank for many hundreds of thousands of dollars.
aggrandizement for commercial purpose ?

people whom arrange the natural composition of nature- pose- stage.
I think are not true to the pure art form . land scape , people, etc...

education / perception must be by comparison, existing as/ an dichotomy .

to seek out composition will than be an effort... real work. what do you think?

For me it whatever appeals to the sense it was intended to. A woman's body unadulterated by clothes, makeup, tattoos, etc is a work of art to my eyes. Some people however think tattoos on a woman's body is art. Ugh.

A real Mexican dish made by a Mexican person is a work of art to my nose and tastes. (Cause while people just can't make good Mexican food. Ha!)

A woman in well designed clothes and shoes/boots is a work of art, she has created herself.

Bettie Page in every way was a living breathing work of art. Sigh.

How sad, having talked about Thomas Kindcade in this thread, he passed away today in San Francisco. News said he died of natural causes, and that his art work makes about $100M per year. Island Girl posted his news artical in the general forum.

How is it that someone who has produced $100 million selling the art he has created can have critics that say his art is no good? My art is no good, I havn't sold a dime yet, so how can they claim someone who appeals to the masses of people, is not a good artist? Pretty obvious it appeals to thousands if not millions of people who paid money to have one of his pieces of art. Granted they are mass produced copies of the originals, but so are the works of Ansel Adams.

Was Ansel Adams an artist, or can anyone sit in the same location snapping a picture a minute, until the light ends up the best results? Is it the man doing it, or the quality of the camera? How do you take a bad picture of something as grand as Yosemine? The processing of the film is not an art, it is a manufacturing process of chemicals and time. Any photographer would argue til the death on those comments, but when does a craft that can be learned, become an art form? Yet Ansel Adams photographs sell for thousands of dollars. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have one, and love to have a Thomas Kincade, just playing devils adovcate a little, that who is to say what is or is not art. Kincade and Adams both had a style of art that was appealing, and it sold. Kincade's mind thought up his scenes, but Adams had to only hike to the best vantage point for his scenes. 2 different ways of expression, both considered art, painting vs. photography, but in the end both used mass produced processes of copying origionals, so neither was selling art, they were selling reproductions of them.

Art is subjective. It irks some people to no end to hear that when they want an objective basis for mental-emotional resonance to validate their experience but it really is as simple as that.

Even snapping a rubber band is art (music).

Lets see you sell $100M worth of rubberband snapping tunes first. Laugh Not too sure judging art is so simple, if you consider it another "truth" question of what it true art and what is not?

THE DARK WOOD BENEATH THE MOON

The rich buy a painting
from the dead side.
They pull long feathers over
their eyes and wish they
could feel the perfume and
sweat from the mystery
they have bought,
but their investments lull
them to sleep
in the dark wood beneath
the moon.

(poem by my brother)

BS. You need to make a buck on your art before it is considered art? I don't think so.
