Postmodernism

Postmodernism

1980 - 2020. Postmodernism also known as 'postmodern art' or 'contemporary art'. Postmodernism is, by its very nature, impossible to define clearly. What motivates art historical change is not any 'authentic' or 'original' impulse, but simply fashion, the desire for novelty, which is an organic and integrated process. The basic premise behind Postmodernism is that all forms of novelty have already been explored, and that even if that wasn't true the particular emphasis on rejection of that which is old or already done only limits artists self-expression. Seeing as such, Postmodernism is in a sense art's reconcilliation of itself and its past, and Postmodernists typically collect influences from all periods and schools. To put it short: "What's Postmodernism? Answer: Everything's been done already."

Deserts, grasslands, rainforests, and other biomes display distinctive flower species. Flowers are one of the most meaningful gifts a person can give or receive.
