I don’t know about you, but modern art completely goes over my head. It just looks like a jumble of scrap material haphazardly thrown together with no sort of semblance and given a meaning as an afterthought.
naturally I’m referring to the most recent winner of the Turner Prize. Scottish artist Martin Boyce won the prize yesterday for a pile of junk that is supposed to represent a park.
Now, don’t get me wrong, sometimes I get contemporary art, the beauty comes from its oddity but Boyce’s piece really has nothing inspiring about it.
I think it pushes the boundaries of what art is simply because it’s just way too difficult to see where the art is. It’s a shame that the modern-day artists can’t be more like Picasso or other great artists, tha side of culture really seems to be lacking lately…..just look at some of the poster for the London 2012 Olympics.
