'Wealth creates art', sure I'll go with that.
I think it is a statement of fact, what is it not?
A rant. Is that your point, Quint?

Art is intentional, and people see it that way.

There are too many things happening for people to underestimate Art as intentional.

hmmmm ...art is intentional in what sense? Oh I would argue that art is primal and in that sense it's about as intentional as foraging for food.

because people have been cut off from having regular contact with the surreal beauty of nature by the urban machine, nearly all of the vistas of the urban machine represent work, people are unintentionally trying to retreat by creating an artificial pseudo-nature

Art is intentional to avoid being intentionally practical.

Yes exactly because practical represents work and art is entertainment essentially and entertainment is essentially a pressure release valve for people who work, it is the artist's job to release people as it is a prostitute's job to release people. It is important that art does not represent work. Ironically both carelessness (punkism) and intense skill are closely related because the former allows the viewer to know that it is easy and the latter makes what the artist produces look easy. 'Easy' is the key. Work is hard. Just as the prostitute is easy - Art is easy!

It might be "hard to do" but bad art is art that reveals itself as work.

artwork - art/work - art work - artplay - art/play - art play - artfun - art/fun - art fun = artfund.

Sounds like you have a clear idea on the problems that plague art. That idea alone does not cultivate the freedom to test and try those boundaries, at least not for everyone.

No and that is why we are jammed. I believe that post modernism was the intercourse phase and soon the gestation will be over and art will finally be born.

Besides, regarding 'people are unintentionally trying to retreat by creating an artificial pseudo-nature' is not entirely correct.

People have a closer connection to the feeling 'post-modernisim' now and that is different to the dominating knowledge of what that is.
