It shouldn't. All art is good and meaningful to someone,, somewhere.
Good question. By virtue of its content, choice of medium, the materials involved, craftsmanship, durability, universality, beauty, the effect, the gesture and intention.
everyone has their own opinion about different works of art, so art will be evaluated in many different ways
With eye, heart & head
On a 10 point basis with a floor routine and a vault. If there is a tie the art shall duel it out in the steel cage of death.
By the viewer, on a per person basis, as people will have different views.
i would say that by his context, by the meaning the artist gives to that work of art, also by the love the artist have to that piece of art.
Skill of articulating the message and capturing the subject.
Has the artist discovered their 'groove'. Does the art have authenticity, or is it just a copy of other's art?
Does it please the beholder?
There are definite levels to an artist....or to the creative process;
I'm not sure about everyone else but when my friend Jamie D. tells me I'm
next level I see that she gets my work. Now..understand that those are just words...and to each work of art may it have it's own biggest fan!!!
Does it move me in some way shape or form? If the artist is communicating from the heart, the work has value, even if I don't like it.
on wither the artist got his/her point across through their work. Did they express themselves
every single work of art must be evaluated, because the creator already do what the best they can do to create them.
By people who have the understanding and studied the process, cultural, historical, social, emotional aspects that influence that art. Then the work should be judged by the technical ability and craftmanship to comparable works.
On a scale of 1 to 20
Thats the thing, art is so extremely subjective. What I thing is relevant, profound is my opinion, what you like and dislike is your choice. I think its not a single piece of work that should be evaluated but the whole body of work an artist produces. Does the lineage of the artist work show progress, determination, intrigue, and knowledge. I like works that enlighten me and expand my understanding of the human condition.
