No-one likes or understands art but they pretend to get it on dates to the Tate Modern so they can pull at some overpriced bar on the Southbank afterwards. God knows I have, and I’m a famously good barometer for all human behaviour.
To put it less provocatively, nothing beats the sublime beauty of nature or even better, when nature takes a hold of man-made structures.
With that in mind, here’s a good few examples of accidental art being better than real art… obviously this is subjective.
Snow settling on the earth between a brick pavement
Bubbles inside a shampoo bottle
Reflection of a patterned window of a cat
A chip on a car windscreen that looks like a bird
Snow and ice blasted by the wind on a fence
Frost on a wooden floor
Ice freezing like a topographic map.
Swirls on a log
A sunset reflected in a cracked mirror
Moss growing in a spilt bike seat
A green landscape captured through a mud-splattered window
Oranges through a greenhouse window
Paint forming the shape of a volcano
A scuff on a wall that looks like a snowy town
This one actually made me emotional somehow…
Plaid shadows in Scotland
Christmas lights shining through the snow
The peeling bark on a gum tree
Spilled water being stretched into a city skyline
The way a tree snapped
