Sometimes... you gotta wonder


A non- discerning eye

The light bows out
For the mid afternoon
Dumping
Clouds vomit trash
Convergence - Pollock
A cum-flagration    
Visceral to some

Indiscriminate partners
A row of hills
A road to horizon
A decaying house
A mother battling gusts
Child in tow
A fallen tree
Rubbish in a park
Ravaged oil streaks
Leaving Pollock style disarray
Little artistry
In this turmoil
Though beholder’s eyes do fall
Despite questionable taste.




Beauty in the eye of the beholder


Origin: I've had a lot of time to think about what constitutes a good poem or story or novel or film or art or music piece. It's subjective of course, yet some work wins prizes while others are ignored entirely. I believe many great works have never seen the light of day. (see Famous After Death)
I think Pollock's work sums up this argument with a view of any single one of his paintings. I mean, I quite like him, however...



Meanwhile, 50 Shades of Grey continues to earn shitloads of money.
