“I don’t really care what other people think about art, sir. Either you get it or you don’t, and it seems pretty stupid waiting on people to get it when you just as easily enjoy having more museum space to yourself, thanks to one less idiot telling me how his four-year-old daughter could do that.” — Marlon James, A Brief History of Seven Killings

Ha! Love it! If his 4 year old could do it why is she not doing it and why is he not selling it then? Whenever I hear a comment like this I think that way… this is a fantastic response…
and right on the money.
I agree. Art isn’t about other people getting it, it’s about getting the art out of yourself so you can look at it.
To borrow from a cliché – art is the eye of the beholder.
