Poop scoop


Aiyee's [5 years old] rendition of Jake Long.

"Nowadays, anything can be art. You could scoop the poop of your next-door neighbour’s mutt and watch the art geeks go “ahh”, but when you look at this Fil-Aussie’s canvas creations , you’re experiencing art at it’s most raw-and most-sincere form. Forget theory; forget composition; forget deconstruction and all the other terms the learned brandy about in the hopes of catching the afterglow of true creation. Millie’s searing strokes, spilt paint, graffiti inspired figures, and emotional scribbles are it."

I love this quote I came across via Wanjam's multiply site, and led me to Millie's multiply. You can't argue with this statement. For most of us, artist wanna be; there is one criteria to take to heart - if it looks good, it must be art. Even a five-year old drawing.

"Nowadays, anything can be art. ">>> i agree. because art now is an expression of ones thoughts.

Or art is in the eyes of the beholder, much like and to paraphrase that saying about "love".

Great, classical and "real" art thrives. Even an elephant draws a better picture with a symphony of colours than me.
