"Ugly" and "Beautifal" are descriptive of one's personal views and tastes. The words beautiful and ugly are as transparent as we are different. What may be ugly to one is beautiful to another, there is no correct answer so at the same time ugly is beatiful. There is no such thing as ugly or beatuful by itself. One cannot live without the other. Eg. Man falls in love with an ungly woman. Ugly to whom? Beautiful to whom?

Because someone had a hard work to make it to be beautiful and in that nice day, for X, Y, Z reasons, in that very special place you are more than willing to accept that all that work as something else, that X, Y, Z reasons tell you to do so...

Most of us who grow up in the western world are conditioned to adhere to a certain standard of good versus evil; black versus white; beautiful versus ugly; victory versus defeat ... These, as we are taught since childhood, are the merits of rational thinking. As we grow older, these values are applied to important life decisions, be they education, profession, family planning, sickness, death and most of all, warfare.

But art follows an entirely different path. The process of creativity transcends any movements of enlightenments, be they imperialism or socialism. Because art, at its core, is primal.

Someone (I think it was Gil Wolman, or one of them Frenchie) once defined objectivity and subjectivity as:

Objective--Because that girl is beautiful, I love her.
Subjective--That girl is beautiful because I love her.

It is like that with art, too.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...
