it seems to me, over the past couple of years there has been a real shift in art. it seems now that there is a lot more art out there that looks like shit. and it looks like that on purpose, either lack of trying, or lack of talent or training, or just lack of good judgement. there are of course, tons of artists making really good work, and even some of the shitty art is conceptually pretty interesting, it just looks like shit.
maybe I should lower my standards. if I did I think I could make a lot more art myself. I guess I shouldn’t always have to strive to be “great” when “good” is usually more than adequate.
I guess I just prefer art that makes me go “I can’t do that” or “I could do that if I tried a little harder” to art that makes me go “did a 5th grader do that?”
