Talking 'Bout My Generation
Friday, November 9, 2007
Dalí is certainly one of my favorite artists. His detail and use of color mixed in with his twisted and often disturbing images make his work fascinating indeed. I cannot emphasize enough that if you get the chance to check out this exhibit, you absolutely must. Its one thing to view a print of his designs, but to actually get in there and see the color and detail in the actual oil, its incredible.
Many people feel that my generation has no appreciate for the classical elements of culture. To many, all we care about is rap music and the internet. Such is not the case. Young people today can still get the same joy and overwhelming sense of awe and unworthiness at a classically created work of art. We can appreciate all types of culture for what they are and what they have helped to accomplish for all of us. The eccentric Dalí himself influenced the way people think about art and entertainment, helping to pave the way for many artists and filmmakers to come.
