Art is not subjective, but subject, and good art is worthy subject and skill. Artists do not find meaning, but shine a light on meaning, and not all subjects have a special significance. Just as in poetry, it is not the common place we are attracted to, but the noble, because we each percieve our own nobility. All we make art, is a reflection of humanity. Every art is a lense that can become a mirror. We look through art and see ourselves.

Then art just meaningless. I think artist do have a reason for what they do, eben if noone like it or not.

Love makes all the difference in life. From start to finish you are dead without love. And no one loves the dead. People honor the dead, bury them or let them lie. But no one loves the dead, and the dead love no one.

The dead can't love anyway, they are dead. Besides that, not every art is about love, I'm sure there is some art that is based on some part in hatred. It msy be based in the artist hatred to something, but the artist loves his painting.

@Lore,
It seems like a piece of art is anything that is framed and presented as art. And this frame can be empty. The frame itself can be framed, if only by words. The black painting in its recurrent forms is something like the 0. Does art also have a sort of logical core? Is the essence of an art work that same as its unity?
