I don't really care that much for Gauguin compared to Cezanne or Van Gogh but that painting has always struck me for some reason.

>What do you mean by 'aesthetic qualities'?

>Or even 'modern art'?
I'm assuming he means conventional aesthetic qualities (composition, anatomy, value arrangement, color harmony, brush economy etc.) and that the term 'modern art' denotes artistic movements from the post-impressionists to present which either found these qualities unimportant or flat out rejected them.

What you're feeling is that it's the role of the artist to communicate meaning using the artistic medium. When the artist expects the viewer to do the work of finding meaning themselves from what appears to be visual noise (usually by reading an accompanying paragraph on a plaque next to the work in question) your instincts are telling you this is in fact a lazy cop-out. The artist is in a way expecting you to do their job for them.

The knee-jerk reaction you're having is your instincts telling that whatever insights you can come to staring at a piece of abstract art that rejects conventional aesthetics are a poor trade off compared with what this approach to art replaced. But thinking along those lines will probably get you called a pleb here.

I disagree. While, of course, it is impossible to grasp a sculpture in its entirety through photograph (I mean, just look at Bernini's Ecstasy of St. Theresa--it's an entire shrine), a good photographer will highlight particular aspects of the sculpture that make it unique, and focus on those. While, arguably, this creates a new work of art in the photograph, it cannot be entirely separate from the sculpture, considering the inherent nature of photography as a documentary medium

And in person, it's can easily be the most affecting visual medium possible. Except for possibly dance

Well in part because Japanese painting became so popular in Europe in the 19th century during the Japonisme craze, that whole swaths of painting from the mid-19th century onward in the West take some influence from Japanese aesthetic principles.

Assuming you mean contemporary art, there's the same problem that anything contemporary has. There hasn't been a few centuries of criticism and curtain to pick out the best, most important influential works. There's a huge mass of works being created and not everything that gets exhibited will be good, and even less will be he best that our era has to offer.

Same problem with reading contemporary lit really. There are other factors of course but this is an important thing to keep in mind.

Again, I'd mark that up to how we look at Japanese art today. First, most of the art that the West took inspiration from Japan, especially ukiyo-e, is by no means medieval. Japan had a print industry as complex as anything found in the west up until the 19th century, and much larger urban populations that consumed it.

Actual medieval Japanese elites preferred Chinese painting (and ceramics, really anything Chinese) to locally made, up at least until the Momoyama period in the 17th century. We might like a Sesshu painting better, but that may be because we are so familiar with the little quirks that separates Japanese from Chinese painting, that would have ranked it as good, but lesser, during the medieval Japanese period.

it resonates with us perhaps because the modern climate is similar to that which brought out expressionism -- looming political troubles, increasing gap between right and left, polarization between people afraid of non-western cultures clashing with our own and those embracing it, the conflict of technology vs nature, our renewed sense of environmentalism, relative economic prosperity and all the conveniences of modern living and yet people are still spiritually unfulfilled, etc

I was refuting the image about eastern artists somehow lacking originality and spontaneity, which is not true.

also art does not "become" a business, art does not "become" anything, art is art. there is business around food and all other natural things in capitalist lands but that doesn't mean you can say "eating has become a business"

true of course. a piece of art is still a piece of art even if its commercialized. saying "art is business" though is using "art" in the mass noun sense which is of course absurd. not 100% of art on earth is commercialized, not even most of it, and that will never be true.

Before you were talking about the spontaneity, which depends on the working process of the creator. And there isn't such thing as originality. It's just the lack of knowledge on your side.

Everything influences you conciously or subconciously to a certain degree, hence the originality is just things you already conciously or subconciously know, rearranged to a different, and possibly new pattern creating something seemingly original.
But since we can't really measure where the influences for the piece came from, we just say something is original.

i guess I'm not surprised that plebs are trashing Rothko's color fields. they look like simple color swatches on screen.

In person they're massive canvases, about 20' square, and the colors aren't just a color painted on, it's not yellow and orange and red and black. It's yellows and oranges and reds and blacks, layered and layered, interacting with each other and involving the viewer. That's why they're so stunning, because the depth and immensity. He's done canvases completely in black without ever actually using black and it looks like complete shit online, but in person it's really captivating because you see all the underlying color

saying it is a huge canvas is only impressive when that means that detail was put into the entire canvas not just all painted black.
Sure it is more impactful when you can see the paint sticking off of the canvas not just see the colours on your monitor but that is ttrue about most paintings really.
