Exploring the Vancouver Art Gallery

A few days ago I did a blog entry entitled “Picasso’s Women” about the Picasso exhibit that’s currently at the Vancouver Art Gallery. As amazing as that exhibit was, there was even more to see. I must confess that I’m partial to modern art. I like art that makes you think, or makes you laugh. What follows are some of the pictures I took at the gallery. If I’m certain of the artist, I’ll list it below the picture in question. Enjoy!

    “Art is whatever you can get away with.” I forget who said that, but they nailed it. I too can enjoy stuff that makes me laugh, or think, as well as what just looks pretty to me, but I run into all manner of art that seems to derail thought instead of helping it. I wonder “What the @#$%^&? was that person thinking, and who would actually pay money for it?” This despite I’ve got a couple of bizarre items on my own walls that I’m sure no one would make any sense of either, done by me, but at least I’m not trying to sucker the public with them.
    A related complication is the piles of….baloney generated by the artists and their critics, to “explain” their stuff. I had an art teacher a few decades back who not only did stuff that made me scratch my head but wrote the same way. It put me off art…for a while. I dropped out of school because not prolific enough but also not able to do…baloney. Still, I find [and do] things I like, as do you, and that’s what counts…
