Is It Art Just Cause We Say It Is?

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

What makes something art? Is simply saying that something is art enough to make it so? As much as I’d like to believe that anything can be called art as long as it provokes thoughts and feelings in people sometimes I just don’t see the beauty in what others call art. But just because I don’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful to someone else. In the spirit exploring other tastes I thought I’d check out the art of Paul Cowan. He was named an artist to watch for 2013 and if nothing else his paintings made me think what is and isn’t art. What do you think BTs? Do you see the beauty that won Cowan praise?
