I still love reading and discussing art theory, even though my general conclusion is that theory is only applicable after the fact, and of no use to the practicing artist. If we intentionally made art to fit the realm of the latest movement, wouldn’t the movement then be over!? Something unintentionally “cool” would be taking place elsewhere. Theory belongs in the world of criticism, which, let’s face it, can be counter-productive to producing anything naturally cool. But what is more F-U-N than each of us being an art critic? Shamelessly bashing what we hate, praising for all ridiculous reasons what we love, with any number of contradicting theories to pull from for validation. Come on, let’s go to an exhibition together and crank it all out!
