The Stupid, Insane, Fake World of Art
Jewish World Review, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/11/2018 6:27:30 AM

Recently I read a post on the Drudge Report that an auction house was forced to admit it got "Banksy-ed" after a piece by the mysterious artist shredded itself after it sold for £1million. Apparently the shredded work of art will now be worth twice as much. Insane, perhaps, but hardly surprising to me; as I had discovered to my dismay that the world of art had long ago been more consumed with marketability rather than genuine talent.

The most insane piece of art I´ve ever seen is in the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. It´s a painting about 5´x 5´ with a stainless steel frame (I think). The canvas is painted white. That´s it, unless there´s some detail that I missed.

Art is completely up to the individual to appreciate. Its why I don´t like funding from all to support it.

At least Banksy can draw. There were huge paintings at the Whitney Museum that were completely blank except for the color blue.

As the Official Potter for the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (yes, it´s THAT vast), having had a retail and wholesale pottery business for twenty years, I feel you dog. What I lack in talent (and I lack a LOT), I made up with chops, having thrown well over 150,000 pots from ´94-2007. The wholesale and retail and most of my equipment is gone now but I still throw for a very successful pottery near a national park. Once a year, I drive up there with my wheel, throw a thousand or more pots in a little over a week with their clay and drive back home. They fire, glaze and sell it as their own and that´s perfectly fine with me being their "canvas" maker. I´ve never really considered myself an artist though since I just make round stuff out of mud. However, I always considered the National Endowment for the Arts as welfare for artists.

Every art museum has those blank one color pieces called art #1. Baltimore Museum of art had a coo coo clock that was exactly like one I have at home. Nothing expensive or fancy. When I went to correct the time on it, (a force of habit at home), The guard yelled at me for touching the art. I yelled back at him that this isn´t art. Art was in the next room painted by people who had talent. Some of those paintings were so life like, one would think it was a photograph. Now that´s art which took talent to produce.

There are a lot of parallels to other things going on in our culture.

Anything can be passed off as art as long as elitists proclaim it so and are capable of convincing you that it´s due to your lack of sophistication if you happen to disagree. So all the heads bobb to the tune of oos and aha´s while invisible thought bubbles express "I can´t believe this garbage is art what´s wrong with me I hope I can pull this off."

#8 sounds like an artist to me. Taking something mundane and making something beautiful out of it; something that people value and display, is a great thing. Even better if they are willing to pay for them. At this moment #8 might be in thousands of living rooms in a place of honor.

I had a friend twenty years ago who was an Indian trying to learn about her roots. She started making pottery and gave me a few of the practice ones. They are among my most cherished possessions.

Looks to me like a bunch of people with more ´Dollars´ than ´Cents´.

I recall going to the Hirshorn museum of modern art (part of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC). One of the ´priceless art´ pieces was a bunch of short 2x4 pieces dumped in a pile. I have seen the same thing at construction sites, it was called the ´drops´ pile. Every now and then, the pile would be picked up and put in the dumpster.

I agree that ´art´ should not be funded with money, taken under threat of imprisonment, from working people.

Let the rich people fund it.
If the ´artists´ can sucker the stupid rich into paying ridiculous amounts of cash for stuff that is basically trash, then that´s their business.
BUT-when some ´executive director´ of some ´nonprofit´ wastes Taxpayer money to buy this trash, then it´s OUR business!

I got a grin out of this piece.

I have done a good bit of engineering consulting work with a couple of major art museums, solving problems with large outdoor pieces, ancient Egyptian and Greek art and modern pieces.

Art conservation is a funny, interesting world. But, some of the modern art is pretty ridiculous, too. I´d far and away work on an ancient piece like a marble sculpture than a modern large outdoor piece, which is often not particularly talented (IMO) but is badly constructed, falling apart, and very difficult to rebuild and stabilize in a sound engineering manner while retaining the appearance the artist intended.

Today´s art critics seem to praise works depicting chaos rather than beauty. They love, ´splashes & dashes,´ rather than tranquility and God´s awesome creation throughout the natural world. The huge metallic stick, ´tinker-toy,´ sculptures placed in public places, around airports & etc. do not inspire, but annoy. The artsy in-crowd must view the world through a very skewed prism.

Better to check out the beauty of today´s Western Art which depicts realism and delights viewers with amazing beauty and isn´t a waste of time.

The rise of "modern art" coincides with the rise of the acceptance of Freud. Deep meaning ascribed to nonsense.

I long ago decided that if I could do it, it wasn´t art. (I can dribble paint on a canvas.)

My definition of art is now this - If I want to look at it a second time, it has a good possibility that it is art.

That was a polar bear in a whiteout blizzard, no doubt. I´ve known very talented artists who could draw a scene with photographic realism, yet never make it in the art world.

The world of art is not about talent or creativity. Probably more about who you know, or who you (bleep).

RIO DE JANEIRO — Ten women in Brazil have accused a self-styled spiritual healer of sexually abusing them at a clinic in the central-western state of Goias. The accusations against Joao Teixeira de Faria, known as John of God, were made Saturday night on the Globo TV network. It was not immediately clear if Farias was being investigated by prosecutors. In a statement to the G1 news portal, Faria’s press office said: “John of God vehemently denies having committed any inappropriate behavior during his treatments.”

New filings by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Friday provided fresh clues about where the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is headed. Mueller’s filing said President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was contacted in 2015 by a “Russian national” seeking “synergy” between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. The special counsel’s team also said Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, lied about meeting with Konstantin Kilimnik, whom the U.S. government has linked to Russian intelligence

Five minutes later he returned to find 38-year-old Ream lying on the ground. She was blue and not breathing. Dakota immediately began CPR and yelled to their 11-year-old to call 911.

The Boston Globe used former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick´s Thursday announcement that he would not make a run for president as an opportunity to advise Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to make the same decision. "Running for president is hard," wrote the paper´s editorial board. "Deciding not to run? That can be even harder." The Globe‘s board, which in 2015 argued that "Democrats need Elizabeth Warren’s voice in 2016 presidential race," does not explicitly say Warren shouldn´t run, but it does lay out

Does the revolt of the Yellow Jackets in France vindicate President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord? It’s certainly looks that way following the retreat by President Macron from the plan to boost taxes on fuel because of global warming. Mr. Trump’s complaint, after all, was about the cost to Americans of the accord. Turns out the French don’t want to pay for it, either.

When news broke that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his 2016 meetings concerning the failed Trump Tower Moscow project, the chattering class instantly began talking about the failed Trump Tower Moscow project. Of course that was news. But it turns out the Cohen plea agreement also made news in what it did not cover. Specifically, it spoke volumes -- without saying a word -- about a key allegation of the Trump dossier, the charge that Cohen traveled to Prague to arrange secret payments to Russian hackers attacking the Clinton campaign.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting.
