Modern Art - Ready Made Art ?

American Contemporary plein air painter.

Has representational art become 'lowly Art' to major museums ?
Modern Artists would have you believe this...
The deliberate absence of beauty in Modern Art, shows that we have progressed beyond representation, right ? or
... does the Emperor have no clothes ?
The Absence of Beauty

Can our Society really be defined by Modern Art ? Have we been reduced to only showing negative emotion ?
Art Imitates Life and Life Imitates Art

Anti-mimesis is a philosophical position that holds the direct opposite of mimesis. Its most notable proponent is Oscar Wilde, who held in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life". In the essay, written as a Platonic dialogue, Wilde holds that such anti-mimesis "results not merely from Life's imitative instinct, but from the fact that the self-conscious aim of Life is to find expression, and that Art offers it certain beautiful forms through which it may realize that energy.".[
