Imaginary art: abandoned house
by Shehbaaz Baurtally
This type of scene is common in Mauritius, especially where sugar factories have been closed. So there are many small houses resembling each other. And they were normal for the workers of the factories.
The size of art does not matter when it comes to appreciation. If an artwork makes others uplifted or inspired or attracted, then it is a real art. After all, as I always say that the word "art" itself denotes know-how attained by practice.
The art world is being worsened by those who claim that art does not demand skill/talent, that art has no standard, meaning that anything can be label as art, even a blank canvas.
Although this will not affect our own art, yet, I like sharing these facts so that people are not fooled by the deceptive fake art world. Today you can easily find a super-rich with no serious skill, distorting the real meaning of art and showing fake art pieces. But because he is super rich or has a notorious family name, then some will venerate him even though internally they are confused.
