I’m not sure if I’m a complete philistine or a bit too much of a realist. But when discussing abstract art recently I had to say that I had little or no appreciation for it. That black canvas with a small white triangle in the lower left corner, the work entitled Consideration of Infinity. And someone paying tens of thousands of dollars for it. I look at the item, the amount paid and feel that it’s a case of oneupsmanship. “I’m so much smarter that I understand and appreciate this form of art where you don’t.” I look at the item again, and shake my head. No, I just don’t get it. I’m not sure if I’m a complete philistine or a bit too much of a realist. But I do know one thing. If I had the money to buy something like that – I wouldn’t.
