If I am going to be writing about art, even the law concerning art and the art world, I feel obligated to tell anyone who might read my blog what I think about art generally.
Where to start in defining art? Philosophically, it can be anything that’s not nature. Nature vs. art, like fact vs. fiction – if it came out of the human mind, it’s art. But looking at the mass-produced mug in my hand this morning (with BRYAN CAVE on the side, and “M Ware® China” on the bottom), it’s hard to say that’s art.
