What is Art?

There are as many definitions of what Art is or is not as there are artists. I think art is anything that you create for your own appreciation. Art is the manifestation of human creative skill and imagination in a visual form, with scent , as sound or in digital form. Art cannot always be defined. Painting, sculpture, drawing, structures, light shows, music, dance and other works meant to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power are art forms.

Abstract Art uses a visual language of shape, form, colour and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th-century, many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy.

Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.” – W. C. Fields “Bring in the bottled lightning, a clean tumbler, and a corkscrew.” – Charles Dickens “Always carry a corkscrew and the wine shall provide itself.” – Basil Bunting “Paris’s neighborhoods, the arrondissements, are organized like a twist. They spiral from the river like toilet water flushing in reverse and erupting out of the bowl – a corkscrew or what have you, a flattened pig’s tail, a whorling braid notched one to 20.” – Rosecrans Baldwin Descriptive Keywords: Challenging, Abstract, Warm, Red, Yellow, Artistic, Mysterious, Background, Playful, Creative Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestMoreRedditLinkedInPocketEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading...

It is in our own time that we have become aware of pure aesthetic considerations. Art never can be imitation.” – Hans Hofmann “I paint; I draw and paint – I’ve been doing that since I was in third grade, drawing realistically and then changing to abstract art. That was my first creative thing before guitar or comedy.” – Steven Wright “I’m not an abstract artist; I leave that to others. To me, abstract art ended with Kazimir Malevich’s ‘Black Square.’ To continue it is senseless.” – Jonas Mekas “I think we’re much smarter than we were. Everybody knows that abstract art can be art, and most people know that they may not like it, even if they understand there’s another purpose to it.” – Roy Lichtenstein Descriptive Keywords: Challenging, Abstract, Warm, Red, Yellow, Artistic, Mysterious, Background, Playful, Creative Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestMoreRedditLinkedInPocketEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading...

You must always start with something. Afterward, you can remove all traces of reality.” – Pablo Picasso “Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.” – Al Capp “The surrealists, and the modern movement in painting as a whole, seemed to offer a key to the strange postwar world with its threat of nuclear war. The dislocations and ambiguities, in cubism and abstract art as well as the surrealists, reminded me of my childhood in Shanghai.” – J. G. Ballard “We are all hungry and thirsty for concrete images.

#incarceratedworkers Anthony Warnick, “You May Choose,” prisoner produced off-set prints...Warnick’s use of prisoner labor in the process of drawing attention to the practice raises a host of ethical questions — namely, is he exploiting the same people he theoretically wants to help? The artist is aware of this quandary, writing in the catalogue:
"The aim of the work is to not produce ethical objects, but aesthetic objects complicated by the ethical systems they must pass through in order to be realized.”
He goes on to say that “through contending with these objects I point the viewer along a path to re-configure their place within these systems.”

Yet it’s unclear how he’s proposing we, as viewers, reconfigure our place within systems that many of us know little about. His installation does not work to educate us about them; it doesn’t even fully disclose the process of how the artworks were made — aside from a small acknowledgement in the catalogue of “those who labor while incarcerated in the state of Ohio” — or his role in their production.
Warnick implicates us and himself, but fails to point us down a new path. In doing so, he maintains the status quo and ends up benefiting from the system as a white man — echoing the white, male private prison directors whose faces he displays in three images overlooking the gallery.

The archival prints are composite portraits of the boards of directors of three for-profit prison companies. The fuzzy, slightly distorted images show three similar-looking white men. Warnick’s titles for the pieces reference Francis Galton, a pioneer of eugenics, and here he’s keenly flipped the racist theory on its head by suggesting that white supremacy could be something that’s not just learned but hereditary.
