I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.
I took my sons to the VMFA for their open studio time and walked around the museum taking pictures of things I liked as well as art pieces that make me wonder "Why is that considered good?". It's not necessarily that I find the pieces "good" or "bad" but am curious about why one would be considered fine art over another. I also played devil's advocate to those souls who might say, "it looks like they just painted a square" or "put a couple of paint strokes on a canvas". I love the subjectivity of art and that we're all entitled to our opinions. So here's mine: Debatable pieces of art at the VMFA. Enjoy, debate but experience the art!
