If Jackson Pollack works qualify as "fine art," then >anything< qualifies as
"fine art," and the term loses all meaning. What constitutes contemporary
"fine art" is usually a piece of mushy garbage surmounted by an egregiously
deep pile of the so-called artist's personal agenda. The best paleo artists,
who actually have to exhibit >talent< and >technique<, and >do research<, are
light years beyond whatever "fine art" has become.
