What is art? To me art is subjective. There are so many different mediums that they are too numerous to name. We all know the obvious mediums, painting, drawing, film, tv, plays, music, but cooking is also an art. Most everyone is an artist in their own way, which is why art is subjective.
In the past, I have read critiques of artworks where one critic will say that it means this, another, that, and the artist themselves will say no it means something different than what they thought. When you have two different people look at a work they will always see something different than what the other saw. Their perspective is influenced by how they were brought up and other outside biases,.
When I look at works by modern cubists, I see scribbled geometric shapes, yet others will see the greatest artists to live.
It is like how the old school artists and that community saw when artists like Monet and Renoir started painting impressionistic works. To me, the Impressionists were geniuses while to others it may just look like splotches of color.
