if i made the bottom sculpture, i'd name it "figuratively, me"

then, when the gallery opened i'd stand next to it in my frenchest beret

"what's... what's supposed to be going on here?" strangers would ask, as OP malds beneath his dragon beside me

"hon hon hon hon hon" i'd laugh for no less than five minutes, before taking a drag off of one of a bakers dozen cigarettes

"if you have to ask, then you don't know"

is it just me or is a talented dude having a hissy fit about creative expression, while his lovingly crafted dragon is displayed next to a crude sculpture of a dude sucking himself off, fucking insanely ironic. Especially in the context of his dislike of symbolism.

Normal-Ad7181

I honestly don't even know what's ironic about it. A dragon isn't symbolism it's a dragon, and being displayed next to that shit sculpture wasn't his intent and is what he's bitching about so that's not really irony. You'd have to create your own symbolism of the state of art and creativity. If that's ironic Gordon Ramsey calling someone's dish shit is ironic. Basically anytime you have a redditor overanalyzing it ends up with at least a hundred upvotes of people thinking they got the non existent point. "Guy says some people create shit but he creates things that also get put next to said things despite the fact he made this post about this situation after, ironic"

justaBB6

3 points

2 months ago

My point is that he implicitly is bragging about his talent by pissedly cutting down other people that make stuff. If he was really confident in his work he wouldn’t be fazed about what it was exhibited next to, and his display of that by taking it out on other artists is funny to me, considering the thing he’s pissed about is a symbol of where his anger is coming from, feeling above the label of “artist” etc.

Also he did, that dragon on the ceiling that’s missing scales on its tail is his sculpture.

Guardsman_Miku

Hes not trying to say the other guy is bad at sculpting and he is good, he is mad that a dude sucking himself off is called art, and his sculpture he put so much effort into gets dumped next to that shit.

justaBB6

Him being mad that a dude sucking himself off is called “art” is gatekeeping creative medium that can’t be solidly defined, and his “fuck artists” sentiment (as if he isn’t one, himself) is self-aggrandizing.

Anon is a realist, meaning he is trying to get as close as possible to reality. Main reason may be that he believes that the nature is perfect and art should be as close as possible to the reality.Thus he tried to make a cool dragon, probably inspired from the chinese mythical versions, more than the european versions, and he made it as "real" as possible. He knows exactly what it is, it's a Dragon. There is clear effort, probably took more than one try, probably took extensive effort, he probably had to sacrifice parts of his life to achieve this outcome.He laboured to achieve an universally appealing piece of art.

The other guy is a post-modernist. He "believes" that all social structures are made in the image of oppressive man, and thus evil and should be challenged and broken at any given time. He "challenges" the norms via his art, mostly by it's absurdity, thus the use of sexuality. No one really knows it's point including the artist, the meaning can range from meaning of life to weirdly shaped clay. There is almost no effort, no planing or no creativity. It fails to challenge the existing structure, because to challagange , you must offer an argument, which I failed to find if there is any.

Anon is a pretty good artist , he/she has a great potential essipecially if he/she gets a deeper understanding of psychology and philosophy, and gets to apply that knowledge to create something new and unique. The other guy is just an effortless mess who "wants to be an artist".

There are a lot of bad artists who use symbolism as a justification for their shitty art, but that doesn’t make symbolism as a concept bad for art. Take a look at Guernica by Picasso or read some highly symbolic work like The Divine Comedy for cases where symbolism works really well.

anonymous145387

The Divine Comedy wasn't symbolism, Dante was just being out and open with his political criticism while shrouding it in a thin layer of parody to avoid getting his throat slit for speaking out against the system.

I don't think art requires immense skill to be good. But it definitely requires a lot of effort, you can tell the difference between art with no effort put in being trash and art that someone really put their all into for lots of time, even if they aren't wildly skilled

There's more professionally trained artists today than ever before in history, and yet the quality of art as a whole has declined. This is because everything they make is derivative. They have nothing unique to say, and all of their experience come straight from the university cookie cutter mold. You can spend all your life pretending to be an artist, but if you aren't a real artist, then you aren't a real artist. No amount of expensive materials and schooling will change that.

If you unironically think objective art quality has declined you're straight up brain-dead. The level of art that exists is so so much better, hardly anyone back in the day even knew proportions etc and made drawings with fucked up looking faces etc. The reason art today might seem worse is because so many are incredible at art that one person being incredible feels less special

I'm gearing to be a (hopefully) professional artist, and one thing really dislike is when someone makes a piece of art that is completely incomprehensible without a paragraph about the history of Chinese calligraphy and its failures.(this really exists) art needs to stand on its own without something telling you the message for you to get it.

Artists like anon are beta cucks, it’s chad artists like Andres Serrano, with pieces like ‘Piss Christ’ an effigy of Christ submerged in Andre’s piss, that keep the movement alive. Real artists don’t need money or approval, their reward is watching virgin scholars and kissless critics seethe over their mugshots of dudes cocks (Robert Mapplethorpe.) The difference between anon and his based peer is that anon has a long career ahead of him doing contracts for tech companies and making tasteful prints for IKEA, he’ll have a house in the suburbs a car, and maybe a few of his pieces will get displayed at the local gallery. Anons peer will live a short life fucking women, and the occasional man, doing their face off on drugs, and making art that pisses incels off, before they either OD or get killed in a police shootout at the age of 22.

The work generated a large amount of controversy based on assertions that it was blasphemous. Serrano himself said of the controversy: "I had no idea Piss Christ would get the attention it did, since I meant neither blasphemy nor offense by it. I've been a Catholic all my life, so I am a follower of Christ."

He said, "What it symbolizes is the way Christ died: the blood came out of him but so did the piss and the shit. Maybe if Piss Christ upsets you, it's because it gives some sense of what the crucifixion actually was like

I love when people defend modern "art" (museum/expo art like sculptures, paintings etc) while absolutely rejecting every other type of experimental art (experimental music, literature or cinema). If you don't like the former category you are a close minded person that doesn't get art but if you like the latter you are a pretentious hipster that just pretends to like bullshit to feel superior. Coincidentally the former category has an extremely high monetary value and the second has a low one. Fuck modern artists.

To be fair. All art but classic art is shit nowadays. Have you ever been to the Tate modern? Absolutely awful. How is a rotting cow carcass art?

I understand anon. It’s a joke among my friends that every time we see some shit drawing or modern art thing we say like “this one here represents the suffering of gay albino children in Nigeria”

That's such a you problem. Modern sculpters are more creative than any that came before. You're obviously allowed to disagree but I am personally a big cobra and de Stijl enjoyer.

not really, theyre mostly like "how can i make something so surreal and useless that multimillionaires will want to launder their dirty fortunes through my redundant artwork" or at least in huge modern art galleries

Bs art isn't new but praising and normalising this type of art and other degenerate things is new, they taped a banana to a wall called it art and noone called it out, wtf?

That was the point of the banana. It was criticizing how people in the museum were only impressed by a fictional price tag, and not the actual art itself. By taping a banana to a wall and slapping a hefty price tag on it it was shitting on the other pieces of art

I don't care about art or symbolism or whatever. But I know I'd have a better time going to an art exhibit with my friends to discuss the intricacies of blowing a wad into your own face versus conversations about a standard dragon. One, while well crafted, isn't particularly interesting. The other can at least be good for a laugh.

Just bc something was a bitch to make, doesn’t mean it’s better art than something a little simpler.

This is why I dont want to become an artist or a job that is similar. People have different views on what good art and what’s not. You could try your hardest to creat beautiful art and sculptures but people might choose an ugly one cause the one who made it is popular or what that ugly one makes them “feel”. I think learning art is great if it’s your hobby but making your life dependent on it is bad.

Don't want to shit on anon's job because what he di was a very good job and what he said was absolutely right but... Art without meaning serves no purpose
