Totally agree with you Cathus. A great deal of modern art I find nothing more than obscene, ugly and pointless. What gets me more than anything though are the overly flaboyant art critics babbling a load of posh accented twoddle about its merits and those that don't agree with them are neandthals.
I'm always reminded of when The Daily Mail newspaper got some primary school children to paint some pictures. They took the pictures to a local gallery where some self important art critic, evaluated the work. He commonented on how he loved the way the artist had used a child like technique in his paintings. He promptly valued them at around £25k each if memory serves. They then told him where the images had come from to which he replied, "That was a bit unfair".
Undoubtedly there are some very talented people out there who create some very imaginative and thought provoking work. I find a lot of modern art leaves a great deal to be desired though. I personally couldn't be bothered standing in an all white, minimalist gallery, surrounded by people with one hand on their chin, looking at abstract shapes made out of elephant dung for 3 hours. I'd sooner be out taking pictures and playing games with my nephews. Maybe I should get them painting pictures, selling them off and getting myself a D3x and pro glass lol.
