Cross posting from the "show me your gates" thread
My newest "art" gate.
I stole the quote from Poe (a line from Annabel Lee), so it's only fair I give his quote on art. He's kind of a jerk
in most of his comments, which is why I think
I like him so much.
Edgar Allan Poe on art,
"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should
call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul. ' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist."
I'd agree, and I am merely an imitator of what I see in nature.
Social distancing since 1975. It's all just sunshine, shit, stardust, and some water.
