>>583466969
It seriously took you half an hour to do that? You wasted about 25 minutes, 4 good canvases, and whatever you used (can't tell if ink or paint)

>>583466119
Yeah but usually it's aesthetically pleasing. This isn't cohesive at all. And it shows no technical skill.

That's pretty generous OP. I would wager $30 for a place on my wall, but that would still prove your point

>>583467493

They were shit canvases, I think 2 or 3 bucks each.

It's acrylic.

And of course it's not aesthetically pleasing. I put close to zero effort into it. But fortunately for me, people eat this shit up.

It depends... What are you trying to say with this piece?

How much would you pay for this?
>>
>>583468360
True, technical skill is overrated in 'modern art'

Mine could be interpreted as a conflict between order and disorder (the crazy lines and streaks clashing with sharper rectangles) but ultimately I leave the interpretation up to the viewer.

It does indeed look fucking stupid.

Pollock was doing this in a time where it wasn't really popular. He was doing revolutionary things back then.

>>583468824
Order and disorder. That's the most stereotypical fucking thing to say about this type of art.

Pollock's paintings have fractal complexity, which is one way art historians can spot fake Pollock's and also how they can roughly date Pollocks (increasing complexity later in his career). Anyway, Pollock isn't simply a matter of him doing it first. He did it in a particular, very hard to replicate way that people find appealing.

Modern Art is a scam, you can't sell anything without a name and if someone did it was probably for the purposes of money laundering.

This guy is right. I'm no art modern aficionado but even I can tell this was done by a novice.

The only way this would sell for $300 is if it was auctioned off at some kind of charity event, and some big-wig had one too many glasses of wine and got into a bidding war with a co-worker he didn't like.

Masterfully dodged. Technical skill isn't really taken into account in modern art that much at all though. One of my favorites is Victor Vasarely and he is quite technical, even mathematical in his stuff, but most people just notice the weirdness instead of the steps taken.

>>583468901
Ok. So you're saying that this piece is unoriginal and uninspired, which could be true. Granted it does look like there isn't much thematic content embedded... Lets hear what OP says about the theme other than chaos/order

Show some proof.

Nobody will buy when you can't think of a reason why things are the way they are.
As an artist, attending a private art school, artist cannot create are without thought. There IS meaning behind every stroke, every pencil mark ect. When the buyer asks why or what, you will either feed them shit they wont buy, or have nothing to give.

It has nothing to do with what /b/ thinks about art. It's about how gullible people are and how they'll buy into anything if the story is "deep" enough.
>>
>>583472830
Did you do this?

If so, when you sell it to someone, tell them that you made it during a time of extreme emotional anguish (so they feel bad for you)

Say each color represents a different struggle and all the colors intertwined and mixed represent your mixed feelings toward whatever 'extreme emotional anguish' you faced


This is what I'd bullshit anyway

MESSAGE TO ALL WHO WANT TO BULLSHIT ART FOR MONEY:

Pretend it has a meaning. Me personally, I keep a set of 10-15 different 'meanings' that I can apply to pieces.

How to make bullshit abstract art:

Paint a square somewhere

Dip a toothbrush in paint, flick with thumb to splatterpaint.

Then dip a paintbrush in paint. Flick wrist to make splatters lines.

You're done! Sell for $200.

Rinse and repeat.

>>583474575
Why wouldn't you try to make real art about empty symbols? You're already doing that but not intentionall . Surely with as much practice as you have you'd be able to convey some kind of feelings of existential dread
That sounds great too if you're trying to get someone to buy it
>>
>>583475024

That's pretty cool. And yeah it's weird how being present makes it more valuable.
