Questions About Art

Is there good art and bad art?

To answer Lisa’s question about good vs. bad art, I have to go to the paraphrasing of Plato and answer “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

This may sound like a cop-out, but read on. In order to know what bad art is we must first decide and define what good art is.  I define good art as:  that which causes you to take something into consideration.  So, then, bad art is that which does not cause any consideration.  A gray, broad definition that cannot be formulated or calculated in anyway.

Most days, when I am asked this question by either myself or someone else, I tend to answer “who cares?” I honestly don’t.  I love art.  I even love art that I hate.  It all makes me feel something in a way that nothing else does.  It causes me to have conversations that otherwise wouldn’t occur.  It brings out a passion from inside me that makes me want to be a better everything.
