Art Criticism

Jackson Pollock, The Moon WomanThe problem with art critics is that they are often unable to adjust to new artistic movements and let their opinions win over their objectivity and this later results in biased critique instead of an unbiased critique.

Many artists do not like critics much. Artists love to be encouraged, and need positive influences around them, and critics are often not encouraging or even nice. Art criticism is a systematic analysis of art that is performed by professional artists and this criticism is based on art theory and the elements of art.

Because it is difficult to take art and not express a personal opinion, but to take art theory principles and analyze a certain work, it is often difficult for an art critic to distance himself enough from a piece to make a truly unbiased critique. An art critics examination of a piece is often influenced by his or her personal taste in art.
