as someone who does pouring as a good portion of the painting I do, it’s not as trivial as it looks; getting the cellular structure takes some delicate touches of mixing the paint, thinning medium, and some oil(s) to just the right ratios. And of course there’s an element of randomness to it since each one is unique, but that’s what makes it fun and interesting to try to control, though it is futile. Is it as amazing as frescos or baroque pieces? Perhaps not, but as @DougoBlue points out, it’s in the eye of the beholder.

I downloaded the MoMA app on my phone and love to go through the audio tours. its not like being there, but I love it and how it makes me want to be there all the more. It also sounds like they have gone through a major re-construction phase to the facilities.

Okay. Well, to my eye, it’s not art. :slight_smile:

This reminds me - The Chicago Institute of Art has put digital images of many of their works up online. I think this is new, but I’ll have to look into it.
