Were all artists we just use photography to display our art
As it is said: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
And I agree with you, Mark, that some art hanging in galleries is rubbish. I could never see anything artistic in Picasso's work, yet some people place a high value on it. Likewise, putting a crucifix in a jar of urine, insulting God, and calling it "art" is insane. Yet that piece of junk was displayed in a gallery, here, and paid for with our tax money.
