Understanding modern art

This purpose of this blog is to review all aspects of modern art in the light of basic distinction between decorative crafting (aesthetics) and art proper, which is a form of vicarious narrative that is characteristically ‘unsettling’ and ‘uncanny’. Aesthetics is about beauty; art is about congruence with unusual realms of the imagination. Articles explaining this in detail can be found here. Readers are welcome to post constructive criticism and comments on the Facebook page.
