I paint realism. This documentary is a crock of "ig'nant and proud" bullshit.

He showed some abstract works that were moving and beautiful, then dismissed them as paint on ragged cardboard. He's got no taste at all, can he not see the mixture of textures and colours, how the ragged edges and slap-dash painting contribute to a sense of frantic urgency? The guy acts like a painting isn't art unless there's a naked woman on it.

I think there are just some people who would be better suited as mathematicians or something instead of artists. They can't comprehend any way to value art outside of technicality, so they dismiss everything that wasn't obviously slaved over for 300 hours with impeccable linework or whatever as garbage. There are a lot of photographers for instance who spend thousands of dollars on getting the best equipment to take the best possible picture of the prettiest landscape and it comes out looking just like another carbon copy of a National Geographic photo. Perfect technically but soulless to me because there's no thought or attempt to do anything new. No individuality. It's great for postcards and calendars I guess. It's also a way to judge art without having to think, just follow the rules. "Does it adhere to this guideline? No? Well then it's trash!"
