    Wot's that all about, then?

    The missus is a trained (by trained, I mean she studied it in St. Martins, like) artist.

    In such, I reckon she reckons that anything she paints, as a result, is art.

    I say that that's fucking shite.

    Not to say that what she paints is shite, like. A lot of it looks good.

    However, just looking good doesn't quite cut it, like. Doesn't there have to be some semblance of depth to qualify it as Art? Technique isn't enough.

    By that I mean portraiture or still lives, no matter the perspective or angle or given light, it's still a static piece and has no deeper meaning behind it, like.

    Haven't all of those been bled out to their fulfilment?

    I would like to think that she should strive towards classical art, by that I mean pictures with deeper meaning, symbolism, an acute demonstration of the human condition and all that shite.

    For all of her technical talent, all she wants to do is paint portraits of our kids. Nothing wrong with that, like. But she could paint our kids into a grander piece.

    Well, do you consider this art:


    I don't know what the meaning is behind that. I don't care what the meaning is behind it. I think it's all just bullshit.

    Can I draw a couple of lines and dots and make up a fake meaning for it and it's then considered "art" ?

    To me art is all about the technique.

    Art is in the eye of the cliché

    It must move one and expand the human condition, else it is draughtsmanship, or something else.

    Does something have to be more or less universally meaningful to be considered art then?

    No, it must resonate in the soul of the viewer, or listener.

    I had always assumed you weren't an idiot.

    Sorry.
