Arts & Entertainment "Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued." The written word, the spoken word, performance art, visual art. What is "Art?" From television advertising to opera, comic books to classic literature, vacation snapshots to the Sistine Chapel Frescoes; we are exposed to art every day. What is art to you?

Thought that might be her, but I remembered her face as much thinner. And, it's Teresa.

Not really, it's part of the ongoing Photorealism movement, so yes, is not a completely new idea, but it's still part of a valid artistic movement.

I'd take photorealism over modernist abstract expressionism any day, at least photorealism requires genuine artistic talent.
