Now you're just a conformist.

That image is striking and highly memorable without having to understand anything about artsy stuff. Just like the soup can painting is just a ****ing soup can but the concept of it having been painted so faithfully seemingly for no reason is memorable even if it's just a ****ing soup can. The painting you posted has none of that striking quality.

I mean I'm not putting that much into "kinda neat". It just looks a bit neat and the minimalism makes the design memorable, even if it's not at all striking. Like I could without interest comment on what I think is good about it without committing to any kind of feeling. Of course the only reason I'd bother to take note of anything is because it's being presented as art rather than just a doctor's office print.

It's one of those edgy circles. Normies call them rectangles sometimes.

Quit being so insecure.
Yeah basically. It reminds me of that XTC cover which is neat.

yeah but that's trippy and cool when you think about it

there was a whole Art movement about picking up stuff you found, putting it in a gallery and saying "this is my Art"

the context can be even more important than the piece itself

This is the red canvas incident all over again - if you have to explain why a seemingly boring painting is good, then it's actually not good

To be fair, I've seen some pretty good stock prints in waiting rooms.

True. For example, the context of modern found artists being in an art world that embraces them makes their work seem as derivative as a still life.
