Because time is the great artist. Because every artwork is a statement about the nature of our existence, only ephemeral art is art.
How and why time has become a tool for artists working in a disturbingly fragile medium? How to kill time?
How to predict if your picture will die? Nature and art are ephemeral by essence, art nurture discriminating minds.
Physical and emotional effects converge in good pictures to suggest the transience of life.
Jean Michel Basquiat, Even transience of time is ephemeral
Everyday artists make art from the stuff of everyday life and therefore rejected by a wide audience.
Arthur Danto, Perishable art is about the ephemeral nature of being because time has an elegiac and mystical intensity
Nothing will last to the end of art.
