I am constantly amazed at how many people love what I call "messy" art. I'm one of those who doesn't like "perfect" and prefer messy. In stark contrast to that comment, I'm actually a "neat freak" when it comes to my house. But I think when it comes to art "perfect" leaves nothing to the imagination. I mean if you look at art in a realistic form it's really just like looking at a photograph. Don't get me wrong I TOTALLY appreciate and respect artists who paint realism (mainly because I could never paint that well), I just happen to think "messy" is a lot more intriguing....and thought provoking! I like to look at a piece of art and let it speak to me about it's content. I believe one sees the passion in the artist through the abstract and "messiness" of it all.
