A Taste of Contemporary Art


What is contemporary art?

This is an excellent question, and one that isn’t asked often enough. Presumably, this is another one of those art definitions we are all supposed to know – most likely by osmosis, or some other telepathic means, because (heaven forbid) you wouldn’t want to ask a “stupid” question at some Art World function. (Well, you might, but I wouldn’t. At least, not ever again.)

Anyway, the answer is divinely simple. Contemporary just means “art that has been and continues to be created during our lifetimes”. In other words, contemporary to us.

This article pulls some of our most talented contemporary artist’s works to showcase their beauty.

“Sometimes the little space between the dots were to white. I wanted to give it tone…it is not an accident that one little spot is white and one is dull.each spot is the result of the conscious effort.”



Will Cotton

“In a painting, if it feels like a scene you could walk into, it’s a landscape space. If it’s something you could
reach into and grab an object, it’s a still life space.”



Gottfried Helnwein

Website: www.helnwein.com
“It is in the function of the artist to evoke the experience of surprised recognition: to show the viewer what he knows but doesn’t know that he knows. Helnwein is a master of surprised recognition.”
