I have only been to an art gallery on purpose once. I went there to meet up with friends, not necessarily to see the art. (I have been to art galleries because we were downtown and didn't want to walk the Mall.) The art was a nice sideshow. (A REALLY nice sideshow, it was Georgia O'Keefe's tour at the Natioanal Gallery of Art!)
It is often hard for me to see art as art.
Pottery - YES!
Paintings - YES!
Sculptures - Most of the time.
Masking Tape - Hell no!
If you have not heard about this story, you can see video HERE.
This to me is some boring, lazy guy spending way too much time and money in his house. It's like a rubber-band-ball. It hardly ever starts out as a RBB, but once you have a dozen or so in a ball, it becomes fun.
Am I way off base to think that this guy is more of an idiot than an artist?
