    Art depicts everything conceivable. You may as well whine about whining. Why are you whining? You are lamenting? Now you know. You spread your message like an artist, but in my eyes lacking beauty and complexity. Be angry at me and know pain, know the pain of an artist in the midst of his critics.

    Oh, but you think there is a cause to the feeling of misfortune? You think times are a'changing? They may appear to be, but pain whipped us away from anything that could cause us harm the minute nerve endings were invented.

    Why not start a thread about society's sorrow and stop beating around the bush?
    I want to this on weheartit or press a favorite button. There isn't even a LiveJournal "memory" feature.

    Depiction of war and bloodshed is a tradition older than written word. Egyptian hieroglyphics are violent, surreal, and anthropomorphize death. Hades was death incarnate. Hades take this thread.

    I'm with those who say art is subjective, since I think that aesthetics is something more flexible than a lot of people think and that it is only a part of the artistic experience.

    Those artists who were considered the greatest of the modern age were the ones who challenged the perceived boundaries of their medium and of art itself. Picasso toyed with the canvas' two-dimensional aspect by blending different perspectives. Van Gogh used bright colors and brief strokes to portray a world he saw as beautiful. Dali based his surreal paintings on Freud's theory about the unconscious, trying to reach something raw and primal within his phyche.

    That said, I have a strong urge to kick anyone who uses the word "kitsch" in the shins. Can't we all get along? ;_;

    Art is the suspension of disbelief. And when we say a piece of art works, what we mean is that this work of art has succeded in suspending our disbelief.

    And how we love to have our disbelief suspended. Suspended by the movies, suspended by television, and yes, suspended by the telephone, and even suspended by a book. But most of all, we like to have our disbelief suspended by God.

    Hipster Panda rejects your mainstream opinions of art. That is, until rejecting mainstream art gets mainstream.

    There's something that fills me with infinite glee when an ISTJ tells an ENFP they have mainstream notions of art. This should serve to dispel some lame stereotypes.

    *hugs Hipster Panda inappropriately*

    I'm all about crude statements. I r confuze.

    I just meant to not assume that matchy-matchy bathrooms was the SJ idea of aesthetics. Apparently we misunderstood one another.
