Flora Borsi, the Corn Poppy
What constitutes "art"? What constitutes good art? Is it in the eye of the beholder? Is any old rubbish "art" because the artist says so? I don't know the answer to these questions (if I did I would tell you). But by asking friends, family, artists (musicians mostly) and complete strangers I thought I might find out. Three questions were set:
1. What is art?
2. What is your favourite piece of art?
3. Is wallpaper art?
Over the next 100 days I'll post 100 responses. Then we'll know. If you have any answers you'd like to share please do.
