Modern Art , I'm sure you will agree with me.
England so called Queen of art hard at work.
Most of you who are regular readers of my blog are either proper artists or on the way to becoming a proper artist. What do I mean by a proper artist? I mean someone who draws something as it is perceived by the naked eye, personally I have a great deal of love and respect for paintings and drawings which look like photos however that also does not mean that I do not appreciate things like anima, because I do, they are tweaked to be more enjoyable and simple for people to draw and render, a great starting point and a great style. Non the less its modern art this is not the type I am talking about what I don't and will never appreciate is work which I would describe as looking as if it was done by a toddler selling for thousands if not millions of pounds, I'm sure people may read this and feel offended however I am sure there are people reading this and artists on the streets of italy and france who would agree with me when I say there admiration is not deserved, this is also directed to much photography. What people do with there money is non of my business however work by artists such as Tracey Emin (google her) should never be hung next to work of the old masters in places such as the Louvre or the British Museum, lets keep it to the tate modern and not allow this kind of work to take over art. Rant over :)
