I think we are still in the curve between the creation and the acceptance of abstract expressionism!. It is just like when impressionism was chided by critics as not being real art!. Those who do not understand or appreciate the motivation, concepts or results of the abstraction or expressionistic process will likely never embrace it as real art!.

I do not fully appreciate it, nor do I "see" what many artists are doing in their work, but I do not judge that it is or isn't art !. !. !. in much the same way I do not wish others to judge me as to whether I am "really an artist" or not!

The arguments that abstract and expressionistic art is a cop-out, impersonating real art, or "anyone-could-do-it" easy are empty rhetoric, in my opinion!. Setting some arbitrary standard that relies on art "looking" a certain way is not something that I think any artist is wise in suggesting!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I don't particularly like abstract expressionism that much, I think most abstract expressionism is mostly just a chance for artists to flex their bs-ing skills and give art critics and others who think far too highly of themselves something to lap up and make them feel important, and isn't really good!. Some of it is good though, I have to say, Jackson Pollock (who I think you meant) I put in that category, with Willem de Kooning!. Most of it I think is kinda hyped up for something with no substance!. But art is very subjective and in the eye of the beholder!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
