I've very rarely seen a work of art that I wanted to give a second glance.

I don't give a fuck how tortured the artist was, or angry, or weird. If what's there isn't of interest from looking at it, then it's a fail for me.

As I've said before, most people think something must be intrinsically great, if it's worth wads of money.
Missing the point that art is worth wads of money only because it's fashionable, and because of the collecting bug that affects humans.

Rare stamps are worth mega-bucks. It doesn't make them wonderful art. They are just fashionable and rare, and obsessed people want to collect them.

The Mona Lisa is a dreary daub. It doesn't even look like it did when it was made. The value is in the collectable rareness.
While there is a market for shit, there will be assholes to supply it.
