What Makes Great Art?

I really enjoyed this doc. I'm not super big on oversaturated, long, drawn out psycho-analysis of what art means but this was an interesting watch. You can really tell when someone's just laying out a babbling brook of art talk BS, and when the ART actually dictates the BS... Not the other way around... Too often we see insane, over-the-top, explanations designed to mask simply crap art. I hate that. It got me thinking about what is the formula for a good piece in such a subjective realm?

 

What makes great art?

 

I like to think it's more mathematical than we like to believe:  Technique + Subject x Energy + Emotion Evoked = A Mighty Fine Piece of Art.
