What is art?

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

Is art only painting on duck cloth? Is art creating poetry that rhymes? How about creating a sonnet or a ditty? What about taking photos of nature or domestic life? Can a carpenter create art; can a gardner?

I think art is in the creator. If an artist builds something few others would, isn’t he an artist? Isn’t nature the greatest artist of all? Doesn’t nature build the greatest works of art through erosion or evolution? Sometimes at the same time.

I think some of the greatest creations are those that can’t be measured by rulers. Music, visual art, poetry and prose cannot be measured like mathematics, but are just as important.

Art is the responsibility of the observer! Psychobabble, yes, but that’s what I do.
