There is no RIGHT or WRONG: Art, Nature, Religion

I was thinking a lot about the issues raised in last weeks presentation on art and photography.
I have included a photograph of the Versailles Garden and some Graffiti Art Work that can be found in an Ally Way on Cordova and Richards (Near The Harbour Centre SFU Campus).

Arguements can be made that the garden is not considered nature, and that this mural is not art.


Similar to the on going debate of religion vs. science, there is no right or wrong definition of art and nature. So I think its very problematic when scholars, authors, or what have you... try and define what art and what nature is in their work. It's problematic because these types of things are opinion based. While we know that 1 + 1 = 2, there is no right or wrong definition of art or nature.
