What is Art?

Ok, now I’m going to preface this post with a statement that I do like art.  I like all sorts of art.  There is some that I don’t like and some that I simply don’t understand.  Fliss has grown up surrounded by art in her lovely mother, Fran’s gallery, so she knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

Fliss wanted to see the Peggy Guggenheim Museum which houses works of art by artists such as Jackson Pollock (Fliss: “The most over-rated artist of the 20th century”,  Max Ernst, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.

I was super interested in being in air-conditioning.


This is what I was looking at.


Peggy had a lot of dogs and buried them all in her garden here….


Then when she died, she had her ashes scattered in the garden with her fur babies.


Then we got into this sort of “art”.  This piece is entitled: “Rose”.  Can  you see it?  Apparently it’s metaphorically fragrant.  Seriously, it’s a big bit of graph paper.


This piece I like to call – “Leftover Bathroom Tiles:


And my favourite – “Bottles on a Shelf”  This piece really spoke to me.  I think it’s the primary colours that I liked and the fact that it’s familiar – we have this piece in our laundry at home.


When I saw this piece – “Bottles on Wood” it was time for me to go.


Until I was drawn in by “Weapons”


Do yourself a favour.  If you’re an art fan – take the time to head to the Peggy Googs Museum.  The air conditioning is fabulous!
