Photo Hunt: Wrong

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This week’s theme is ”Wrong” and you can call me a philistine if you want, but I just don’t ‘get’ a lot of contemporary art … like this example at the McClelland Gallery in Frankston, Victoria. Quite frankly it just reminds me of pile of intestines, and that to me is just plain “wrong” (I have no idea what it was supposed to be, but I’m sure it has a lot of meaning to someone who is more cultured than I am).

  1. Hi Anne,

    I don’t get that piece of art either BUT the real reason I am writing is to say I am so glad you found my new blog…I have since put up another post but will be off for a week now while Dan and I go camping for a few days..

  2. I didn’t “get” a lot of abstract art until I took a fine art class in college last year. As part of the class, we had to create a piece of art (and a photograph wasn’t allowed). I discovered that it was easier to create a piece of abstract art than to actually paint or draw something that looked realistic. I ended up doing a piece that looked like a bunch of blocks with a couple of triangles, but I was able to interpret what I was trying to express to the class, and got an “A”. I’ll leave art (abstract or otherwise) to talented artists!

  3. I’m with you Anne, I don’t get a lot of contemperary art either. I think that’s why I prefer the “old “‘ masters, at least I recognize what I’m looking at :).
