Mordern "Art"

So I went to a museum with my grandma today and I saw this... A blank goddamn picture, there were 2 of these, same size and all but with different names. Am I the only one who is pretty sick of this kind of modern art?

i should make a painting on a blank white sheet with my semen so you can only see it under a black light and it will be artistic because its made out of organic matter and make up some other ******** to go along with it and sell it to a dumb ass for millions...

They should call it "Absence of Black"   
The white represents innocence. As soon as a canvas is tainted with a paintbrush, it's quote-on-quote "vriginity" is taken from it. They paid such a high price for the painting to represent how much people SHOULD value innocence, in a world where so many canvas's ( metaphor for people) are tainted with all different colors.

Think of it from this point of view.

When you look at a picture of what many people consider true "art", such as the Mona Lisa, what do you see? You see a slightly smiling Woman, posing in front of a mountain scape. Of course, you know for a fact that what you're seeing isn't really a slightly smiling Woman, it's a single framed representation of a Woman who once existed, that just so happens to take the form of a painting. A painting, in reality, is just a series of ink stains on a piece of blank white paper. The Mona Lisa is made up of the work of millions of strokes of a paintbrush, .

But yet, despite that knowledge of multiple brushstrokes, we still recognise it as a a smiling Woman. We recognise a human face, simply because the series of ink stains that stand before us take the recognised form of a human face. We create a meaning and interpret those ink stains as a human face, because the artist has directed and fed us this stimuli. Our perception has been manipulated, because we have found a meaning.

However, when you look at a blank piece of paper, such as the original post, you are literally presented with a blank canvas. From looking at this, your mind goes into overdrive, trying to decode all the potential meanings this empty stimulus may or may not have. When we realise there is no specific path to follow to reach an interpretation or true meaning, we give up looking and label it "boring" or " **** ".

It's because the artists of "modern art" are not spoon feeding us information. Their "art" is not a blank piece of paper for art's sake, it is the ability to think freely. You may see an empty canvas, but the conceptual mind sees a key that unlocks the liberation of creative and conceptual thinking that our generation has seemed to forget they possess.

And I'm not going to go into why the original post is actually "Post-Modern" art and "Modern" art is actually pic related.

nothing and if you'd excuse me have dicks to suck.

People pay for the 'artists' name, not for the 'artwork' and it is killing true art.

My friend said he will offer his artistic masterpiece to our local museum. It's called "A fart in a bottle" and it's a... well, yeah.

There is actually an Italian artist who made "​​a work of art" in 1961, which consisted of several cans filled with the artist **** .

Firstly, this is not modern art. The term Modern Art refers to the Modernist Art Movement, i.e. Artwork created between 1860 - 1970, including Artists such as Picasso, Gogh and Warhol. This would be termed, at a glance: Post-Post-Post Modernism, or Contemporary Art.

That aside, not knowing the Artists intention behind it, their process, we take it on face value that this is nothing more than a white canvas stretched badly onto a frame - it is down to our aesthetic appreciation of what we see as Art, that we value it in a certain way. Nowadays we are more likely to appreciate a smooth design and something that visible effort has created. However Art as a concept goes deeper than just skill with paint and paper. Just because you don't recognise it as being of value does not make it so, and if you say 'anyone could do that' my reply to you is 'but they didn't'.

What value am I supposed to recognize if there's nothing but a blank canvas? Whatever people say, that's not art, even if the artist had some "concept".

How to get recognised as an artist today:
Obtain blank page/canvas/etc.
Put whatever the **** you want on it, it doesn't even have to be anything.
Now feed "culturally superior" idiots crap about how meaningful it is, and how the nothingness represents some obscure thought.
Congrats.

It's contemporary, not modern. Modern art ended during the 70's.

If you want art, go to DeviantArt and type in "the hedgehog"
