A criticism often levelled at modern contemporary, and abstract art in particular, is the public's perception of art and the conclusion that "a three year old could do that!"
Unlike , say, a piece of music that we hear and accept that we either "like" or "dislike" without analysing why that should be, we constantly feel that we have to immediately recognise a subject to understand it and quite often are not prepared to spend time and gain more from a piece of art.
Anyway here's a piece of art that is by a three year old - but I kinda wish that I'd done it!!!
