Edward Winkleman on the useless nature of art, and gold:


I agree with Edward, and have made this point with other artists I know. Art is useless, even more useless than gold, which at least can be utilized in circuitry, caps and other manufacturing.
This upsets some painters, I assume because they hold onto the idea that art must be useful in order to pursue, a prevalent attitude in our culture about a great many things, including art education. I don't agree with this attitude, probably why I delight in provoking other painters to examine their own attitude toward art.
