Do you ever see yourself as a work of art?

Asked by BellaB (6451points) July 9th, 2016

Strange question? Could be.

Yesterday I was walking down the street in pink spotted pants, a turquoise striped top, pink and orange floral sandals and carrying a small bright green bag. Saw myself reflected in a bus shelter and thought – I look like a crazy piece of pop art.

Do you ever try to look like a piece of art? do you ever inadvertently turn into a painting or sculpture? it’s a bit different from dressing like Madonna or Springsteen but along the same lines.

Are you a Roy Lichtenstein character? a Rembrandt? a Titian? a Keith Haring?

An unfinished one. Definitely abstract.

Haha, I guess you could say that about me at times too, yes.
I too like colorful dress with a rather bohemian flair.
I often wear colorful batik or tye dye type dresses and skirts, lots of gypsy/hippie skirts, braided hair with beaded bracelets as hair ties, dangley earrings. I think being a creative type lends itself to showing up as well, in our personal sense of fashion.

I really put little effort into my clothing, I just know what I like and have an uncanny knack for finding the perfect, color complementary accessories. It’s my designing eye that gets the credit, not because I deliberately set out to make some kind of a statement.
It is all very natural and uncontrived for me.

I used to.

There were a few hangovers back in my drinking days where I felt like Guernica

I am definitely a work in progress, something by Antoni Gaudi.

I saw myself in Leighton’s The Accolade….

So I made it happen

Never. I see myself as utilitarian and practical. Not an object to be seen as art.

@Seek Is that you in the picture?

elbanditoroso's avatar

@lbm – never trust a woman who is point a sword at you. Words to live by.

Seek's avatar

@LBM – Yes, it’s one of our wedding photos.

@elbanditoroso :: I have seen Seek’s cooking. It would be worth a few seconds of sword pointing.

LBM's avatar

@Seek You look absolutely beautiful.

Seek's avatar

Aww… youse guys are sweet.

In a way, I guess, but that’s because I view humanity that way in general. We’re all a bunch of completely screwed up beings trying to navigate through life with our own issues. It’s tragic and beautiful, and overwhelming.

I don’t see myself as a work of art but I can sometimes see others that way and I appreciate their creativity and sense of style.

If I was a piece of art, I definitely would be a charater from a morning newspaper cartoon. Sum up my life and look nicely.

I’m a work of art in a Jackson Pollock sort of way

@Seek Awesome pic, that was no boring wedding.

BellaB's avatar

Love these answers. Thinking of everyone in a slightly different way now.

@zenvelo still has me laughing a couple of hours after I first read that response.

@Seek – love the inspiration as well as the result

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

Yes, I am a work of art.

Stinley's avatar

I’m more of an audience kind of person. I like looking and appreciating but rarely take to the stage.

SmartAZ's avatar

I have been called a piece of work. I’m not sure what they meant by that.

Coloma's avatar

^^^ Haha

I see myself as an unfinished painting of the artist who changes the mind almost every minute.

Strauss's avatar

I sometimes see myself as a Kurt Vonnegut character. Normal-appearing, but full of surprises.

A work of art? Me? Not unless the there’s a painting somewhere, of the south end of a northbound jackass.
