"I really think that Van Gogh was the greatest artist that ever lived" every time I hear that phrase come out of someone's mouth the first thing which comes to my mind is, WHAT AN IDIOT. And not even the good kind of idiot, the bad kind, where they think they know what there talking about. Those people think there making a statement by saying that, "I like something which isn't exactly as it should be, I'm interesting, and have heard of an incredibly famous artist". There the kind of people who think that Dali defines surrealism (note if you haven't seen BBC's Modern Masters, Dali, you really must, they treat Noel Fielding as an art expert, really is a must see, if only to shout at the TV). Seriously when did I become this person, who judged someone for liking Van Gogh, what's wrong with me, I've become a of myself. It may just be that its always the same kind of people who say things like that. Usually arrogant, who automatically think that because they've gone to an art gallery that makes them an art critic. And tend to be delusional of there own self importance, I don't mean to be a bitch, I'm sure I used to be one of those people. I think I'm may just be annoyed by nostalgia almost. Although is it really nostalgia if you've never experienced it, maybe more longing for the past they never experienced. And by making a comment like that, in there mind you can see instantly that they don't really care for modern art. Usually because they know very little about it. And they don't realise that everything, literally everything had an artist of some kind involved. See now I just sound pretentious.
"I really think that Van Gogh was the greatest artist that ever lived", "Give me Monet any day over one of these so called modern artists". If those words ever come out of you mouth I lose respect for you I've decided. You can't see the legacy of modern art, within graphic, and industrial design, you don't concept because you don't understand it. And you arrogance in saying this, is just a cover up for you ignorance, which your desperately hoping no one will uncover. Or maybe you reveal in your ignorance. And in that case get back to reading "The Sun", some pedophiles need to be lynched.
See I've become a judgmental bitch, I'm not sure why, maybe its this course which teaches you to look down on people, or maybe its the fact that my family are down stars, and there the kind of people who say that.
