Good art and bad art (finally) explained – a relationship chart

good art bad art explained in a chart

Contemporary, experimental art fails often by virtue of the risk-taking involved in the artist’s choices. Hence, the final product can be disastrous or genius but both results more often closely related than one might initially suspect. Relying on more accepted conventions places the art somewhere in the “shades of mediocrity” between the two polar extremes. Thus there is a small window on this scale for “good art”, which is also the most perilous area close to “bad” or “confusing”. Sometimes, there is no discernible difference between the three for critics and the general public.

    Just found your blog though an old tumblr post. Good stuff here on WP. Do you still bother with tumblr or is this home?

      Hi John – I guess WP is my studio and office. Tumblr is a window gallery. Tumblr censored a post I made after a frivolous complaint they did not actually verify, so I don’t trust them anymore with my important stuff hosted there.
