OUR COLUMNIST AVILA REACTS TO SCULPTURESTEPH’S ART ETHICS:

‘Great comment about…everything. What will last? What will not last? What will be usefull? What will not? One of the reasons why I use the ancient Egyptians in my comments is because, in the case of the great pyramides, they were made with the intention of enduring the pass of time in opposition of what is going on today. In this case, the intention (the meaning) is everything…

So…why “normal people” (the majority of the population) in contemporary times does not seam interested in art (meaninig that art is inconsequential) while we know that for tens of thousands of years art has been an intrinsic part of human civilization…??? In my humble opinion, the answer to that is VALUE…

People can’t find value in art due to two reasons:

1) They can see it (comprehend it);

2) The value is not there…

Those two aswers reflect the decorative aspect of “things” and until they are not resolved, art will continue to be for the most part, irrelevant to most people…’
