Arthur Robins: How to look at Art.


ARTHUR ROBINS: FIGURES & ANIMAL WITH RED SUNSET, 1991


William-this is how any thinking person should look at Art. First they
should ask:

1. Does this art SAY ANYTHING?
It the answer is 'no' then they should immediately stop looking at it
and look elsewhere. If the answer is 'yes' then they should ask,'
2. "What is it saying?
3. Is the statement TRUE or False? If the statement is False, it really
isn't worthy of being called art -since art should be true.
4. Is this 'truth' profound, or ordinary? Deep or trite?
5. How does the artist 'say' this truth? Do they say it in an
extraordinary way? OR is the artist not proficient enough in his or her
medium?
