On Being a "Painter of One’s Own Time"

   A GoodArt post by Fred Ross:

Why do you have to be a painter of your time?

The greatest artists speak to all people of all times.

They capture aspects of what it means to be human which are true today or as I like to describe it, …” in the ancient distant future”

It is also no contradiction to believe in people’s rights to make any objects they so want and believe those people have the right to claim they’re works are fine art, and yet at the same time express a negative opinion about the quality and value of such works.

And in fact that’s what many of us are doing when we are critical of most modern art.
