It's Not ALL Black & White - What is art?

Copyright © 2009 Linda Apple
"It's Not ALL Black & White"
oil on canvas - 6"x 8"
art museum series

A big universal question that has been thrown around,
theorized about and created many debates in the art world is:
"What is art?" Everyone seems to have an opinion on the topic.
I find myself asking this question when I come across certain
works of "art". As this painting shows........I wonder what does
an all white painting or all black painting REALLY say?

Always enjoy your work!

I live in NY, and I can remember taking my son to the MOMA and hearing him say..."I could do that!" To which I replied, "But you didn't, and that artist did. It was his original vision...and that's why it's called ART:)
