Is art a personal expression?

I've always thought it was subjective, even for the artist.

Going to interject with a bit of Impressionism:
Image
This one (Nympheas) is interesting as it's speculated that Monet's eyesight trouble caused it to be so blue. It's even thought that he was able to see colours outside of most humans' visible spectrum.
Image
The Bellilli Family, by Degas, gives quite a feeling of tension, despite the fact that all of the people seem to be calm.
Image
Renoir was clearly talented when it came to capturing the essence of a busy area.
Don't really feel like going on about any more of them, really. And art always has a place in the world.
I return for no particular reason.

I admire the skill it takes to create pieces like those, I really do, it's so completely alien to me, I never get any questions about art right on University Challenge.

I'm not the kind of person that really expresses themselves much, If I had a style per se then it'd be about creating something to look at and think about rather than something relative to me, or just juxtaposition, that's always fun.

About your first point, I guess that I wouldn't know myself if my view of the world was dark or not, as I've nothing to compare it to.

I just can't do art. I remember having to do it in school and I spent like 5 hours drawing a can of Tango. Was amazing like, I mean properly perfect and I got top marks for it. But I don't think I'm creative at all and am if anything afraid to try ideas in it. I guess it's a bit of perfectionism, if I can't do something great I don't have the balls to even try. I lack the skill and the imagination and guts so I won't touch it.

Personally I love landscapes, so Constable is obviously top for me, and as you all know I'm a big fan of the Lakes so Turners one of Buttermere is a favourite for me:

And as someone who loves ruins (it's where my love of history and nature combine to make something truly beautiful) I enjoy pieces like this:

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

I used to be really into surrealism, Picasso and Dali in particular. My love for Dali has waned as I found out more about him, due to my inability to separate artist and art, so here's a well-known Picasso picture.

Image

I'm aware that I'll get no hipster points for posting something so well known, but I still really like this. The colours (or lack thereof), the broken geometry, the symbolism - there are few better static depictions of the chaos of war.

Now I'm more of an impressionism fan, so I like the pictures that Crispy and Shadow have posted. As for drawing myself, I'm passable but not great (in particular I'm rubbish at depicting motion), and I can't use a tablet to save my life.

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

I sorta know what you mean but I do appreciate some of the paintings posted on here.
It's modern art that I think is a loada bollox.
Putting half a cow in formaldahyde ain't f**king art!
It's just some little rich kid being a f**king weirdo.

I now await more pm's off Doug telling me not to spam his thread and that he'll report me.
Like it matters!
