Refined Art ?

Very near where I took the two pictures posted below at 20 year interval of the corpses of cars piled up high in the car crushing center of South Philadelphia, I shot this oil refinery storage tank converted into a colorful graphic representing Philadelphia in all its artistic glory. Who would think of using an oil refinery tank as a canvas for displaying art? Beats the heck out of me ! Hopefully one day we will not need oil, well, we better hope so, because at the rate we're going, we won't have any more anyway, whether we need it or not... that day may not be so far away. The eternal question : "Yes, but is it art?" applies here... Is it fine art? Is it refined art? A new domain created : Refinery Art...
