This is the perpetual debate. It’s good thing governments are not established on the basis of this debate.
There are those who can not see and there are those who will try to tell you what to see. Difficulties arise when people with closed eyes try to tell you what to see.
My position? Of course it’s art if the composition is put together artfully. Now, define “artfully”. 8-o
Then again, art attracts it’s own brand of groupie snobs to the successful but talentless and insecure icons who deride any perceived competitors.
I considered my ability to write beautiful computer program code in assembler languages an art. It is, because machine generated code lacks the finesse and elegant solution that I could give to a problem.
As the creator you can call anything you create, art if you think it is, but you will run into other opinions. However, don’t get caught in the trap of art snobbery. You may make money by selling your “art” to others but rarely will your buyers have more talent than you. But consider what that says about them! Especially if you take a long hard look at yourself. 8-o
I both laugh and cringe whenever I see some formless catastrophe lauded over by self-important clueless snobs.
My favorite mental image of the art world is of the characters in the tale of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. Somebody always has to play the Emperor & his court. There are more than enough scheming tailors. The world is full of sheepish villagers. But somebody will always eventually play the little naive, honest little boy yelling out that the Emperor is naked.
