Art? Never heard of it.

As the saying goes: “If I can paint it, it ain’t art.”   Which can be restated as: Most modern art looks like a four-year-old painted it.  The reason four-year-olds paint that way is because they haven’t learned how to paint yet.

This comes to mind when I read this 2001 account:

A cleaner (janitor) at a London gallery cleared away an installation by artist Damien Hirst having mistaken it for rubbish. Emanual Asare came across a pile of beer bottles, coffee cups and overflowing ashtrays and cleared them away at the Eyestorm gallery on Wednesday morning.

Oops.  That was art?  Oh, so sorry, I thought it was a pile of shit.

How long before someone actually pinches a loaf, puts a title on it, and submits it to a juried art exhibition?  I haven’t scoured the bowels of the Internet to confirm, but I suspect it’s already happened.

Art can be found just about anyplace, including in digital dexterity.  Here is an spellbinding video of Extreme Card Manipulator Mark Bautista.   Check out the move at 3:11, in particular.
