Modern Art


Remember that time Damien Hirst put a dead shark in a tank and called it “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living”?

Well…that’s what art critics said…anyone could have done it…

Yet no one until Hirst did it, right?

Nowadays it’s all about innovation, at all costs. In life and art, people want the one of a kind idea…the one in a million, billion, gazillion…

It’s just lazy thinking…

The idea is worthless. It’s the execution that matters.

What?

Yes.

Ideas are shit if you aren’t good enough.

Best novels of the twenty first century? What are they about? People doing stuff that isn’t so outrageous or out of the ordinary, people like us. But they were written in a style that was unique…

Get the idea?

I used to write down ideas…one after another. I was obsessed about coming up with one of a kind ideas…something no one ever thought to write about…

But I ended up writing stories that were simple, yet close to my heart. The stories that mattered to me, about the people I was or wished to be.

We should never forget this… modern art is still art, and art is only as good as the things it makes us feel…

  1. Have You seen the faux documentary Hirst made?!!! My God. It’s genre would be performance art, I guess…used as a platform to showcase crazy works of art. It’s absolutely amazing. We bought it hook, line and sinker…I was crushed and crazy amused when I found out it wasn’t real! 🤣 The production value alone is top notch. Funny thing is, at the end it’s full of exquisite art he made from the “found treasures”. My jaw dropped. He’s a phenomenal artist with an imagination from another realm. I was in tears from the beauty of it all. Seriously. It’s called ‘Treasures From the Wreck of The Unbelievable’ and is (or used to be) on Netflix. That man is one very wonderful, bizarre genius. A flare of astounding originality running wild.
