On a very cool card from Estonia, Kaia writes,
Should Art be beautiful?
Who's to say what beautiful is?
Once, I was at a small gallery/gift store kind of establishment with my in-laws. There was a W-I-D-E range of artwork on the walls. My MIL asked what I liked. I replied, "no offense, mom, but the best way for you to pick what I would like is to pick what you don't like." I knew that our tastes were just that different.
Art should move me - a little, a lot, but somehow.
