MODERN “NOT” ART

Is being an artist simple today? So maybe a child? Okay, let your child create what
no one else has created! To be noticed, you must do something unique. But even this does not guarantee success. Some emerging artists receive a Master of Fine Arts degree, and galleries immediately exhibit their work. Others remain unnoticed. There are far more needy artists in the world than successful Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol. Getting money and fame through art is a challenge.

The idea of ​​what art and “non-art” are is shaped by the influence of various tendencies in society and among collectors. These factors are constantly changing, and in no one specific period of time can you find a single definition of art. As the artist Helen Frankentaler, who worked in the style of abstract expressionism, said, “there are no rules in art.”
Nowadays, anything can be art. Our life is “saturated” with them: any man-made object, be it a computer keyboard or a telephone, has somehow undergone a process of creative design.

However, in fact, his “scribbles” and “squiggles” are imbued with meaning.
“And how?” – you ask.

For example, throughout his creative career, Twombly used a loop motif. With the help of repeated looped “doodles” he tried to convey a single and continuous energy field. In 2003, shortly after the US invasion of Iraq, Twombly began working on a series of Bacchus paintings. With the help of a brush attached to a pole, the artist applied coarse spiral-shaped bright red paints to huge canvases, allowing its streams to flow freely from the canvas. Like wine .. or blood ….
Modern art requires a few “sublime” thinking from the beholder, as the artist is not obliged to do all the work for the viewer: the latter himself must link what he sees into a single whole, but anyway, beauty will always be in the eyes of the beholder …
