Is It Art?

What is art?

Is it just a depiction,

A depiction of a scene

Or of a person

Painted onto canvas

To show what one can see,

Can see through your eyes.

It can be like a photograph

So immaculately created,

Yes it has been painted,

Skilfully painted,

But is it art?

 

What is art?

Can a photograph be considered,

Be considered as art.

It is just a depiction,

A depiction of a scene

Or of a person

Printed on paper

To show what one can see,

Can see through your eyes.

It can be like a painting

Showing exactly what was seen,

No errors

It is real.

But is it art?

 

What is art?

If that photograph is altered

Into a vision that is not real,

Something that is only seen

Within the mind of the person,

Changing the reality

Into a scene within his mind

That cannot exist in reality

So it is not real.

Is it art?
