Emposter: This is Black Square by Kazimir Malevich. (link is hot)

[www.book530.com image 419x400]

It was purchased by a museum for $1 million.

He also did such "masterpieces" as Black Circle, Black Cross, and other such paintings. The Black Square is also known as the Supremacist, and he's thought to be the father of Suprematism, a so called "art movement" "focused on basic geometric forms, such as circles, squares, lines, and rectangles, painted in a limited range of colors."

This shiat is what is wrong with "abstract" and "modern" art. This, and millions of "art students," are what leads to "lights turning on and off in a dark room" winning the Turner Prize and collectors and museums literally buying cans of artists' crap (as in human excrement) for in excess of $100,000 each.


I happen to find the entire world of professional sports absurd and senseless. And the world of fashion makes no sense to me at all. Both involve countless adherants and obsene amounts of money that in my opinion would be better spent on pretty much literally anything else. But you know what? I don't go around whining like a little biatch about it as if anyone else might give a shiat.

KrispyKritter: citizen kane had to do something with all that money. painting i respect, it takes skill and talent that one earns over time. photography i have little respect for. click click, big deal.


Yeah, I mean, who cares about creative use of framing and composition, focal length and distance, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, multiple exposures, or any of that easy nonsense you can learn in 30 minutes on youtube, right?

You don't know what you're talking about, clearly, if you think you can set your power shot to "P" and be as good as a professional. The same design principles apply in photography as in painting. Same color theory, same general creative process.

Derp.

Too busy whining about fark posts?


I honeslty thought anyone capable of writing what you did might come up with something better than that. I've clearly overestimated you.

You're completely missing my point. It's not that you're wrong -- you can't be, it's only opinion. It's that you don't get that you're the only one who values your opinion.

It's no different than music. Your garage band is probably better than Nickelback. But they sold 50 million albums and you didn't. Art is luck and knowing people.

Malevich was among the first to come along and do it. And the problem isn't art, it's dealers, galleries etc. When galleries want a resume as part of an artist's submission to be represented, things are completely off the rails.
