The Obama Portraits:
But Is It Art?

American Thinker, by Tim Mostert

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/17/2018 9:14:28 AM

When I was in art school, studying pretentious subjects alongside pretentious students taught by pretentious professors, we had the privilege of learning about basic forms of visual expression, expressed at their highest levels. (snip) The recently unveiled Obama portraits are of a type that I have seen many times in my career as an artist and art historian. The poses are wooden, the compositions hackneyed, and both subjects have obviously been copied from photographs. To make up for the technical weakness of the painting´s execution, the artist relies on gimmicks to drag their image over the finish line, hoping that

Like everything else about Bath House Barry Soetoro, it´s a scandal. The "artist" racist paints pictures of european-american women being beheaded by blacks. Perfect choice for the racists-in-chief.

Michelle must be extremely disappointed in her amateurish and unattractive portrait that doesn´t even look like her. Hoist by her own petard, I´d say.

Of course it is ´art´. Everything an ´artist´ does is ´art´, just as anything a woodworker does is carpentry.
Just as dung and thatch can be a home, this can be art.

The subliminal messages are endless with these ugly portraits. BUT the portraits need to be where they are...because....in several years there will be glorious portraits of Mr and Mrs Trump. The standards will be higher. And people will continue to laugh at the obama portraits. MAGA

It is fitting that the portraits of the most incompetent and pretentious POTUS and FLOTUS ever to disgrace the White House should be created by "artists" just as incompetent and pretentious as the subjects of the portraits themselves. I hope they hang in the hall of portraits for a very long time as a reminder to the American people of their error in hiring such people.

Frederick Hart sculpted some fantastic statues of solders on the top of the Viet Nam Memorial wall tending to wounded comrades. Maya Lin, a young art student did the concept of a wall with name plaques. (I have a similar artistic expression on my mailbox using my street address. You probably do too.)
At the unveiling Frederick Hart was asked by the young lady "did it hurt when the plaster cast was removed from the models faces?". He was confused. Finally he understood and she was amazed when he told her he had sculpted the statues free hand.

From Tom Stoppard play - Artist Descending Staircase.:
"Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art."

An internet search of the Viet Nam Memorial artist sadly only returns Maya Lin.

Like I said before, it is almost like a "Higher Hand" had something to do with these portraits. The Obamas are exceptionally limited and shallow people- They were and are - like Hillary and Bill, Frauds, perpetrated upon the American political landscape by connivers, liars, and America haters. Yes, the people elected them, but under highly unusual circumstances that were like little perfect storms that should never have happened-

But, the Obamas were special because of their sheer magnitude of arrogance, hatred and incompetence. And so- because they are such clods, they select these totally grotesque paintings for their perpetual historical remembrance to the nation´s intellectual conscience. Isn´t that perfect?

Basically these (Hell, I don´t know what to call these monstrosities of "art") junk pictures are the kind of "Clown on Velvet" mass produced things you win at a county fair for throwing darts at balloons. They are amateurish, technical disgraces of the painting art that will always show exactly what a disaster the Obama regime was. Let us pray it also serves as a pair of "Danger- Radiation!" signs for all future American generations.

The public dialogue on what should be a fairly mundane government process where these Presidential Portraits are generated for future edification has swamped their intended purpose. The level of disapproval coming from the public cannot be unobserved by these two ex presidential players. Somehow I would imagine that the level of pride of even the smallest awareness of these players would prevent them from admitting that these portraits were unacceptable. Instead they foolishly choose to be nothing less than ecstaticly approving of how they present.

I believe that these two portraits will be displayed intact as currently intended in Washington, DC for future generations to reflect on the personas so captured. They are such an enormous distance from what could be called the regal countenance of previous presidential occupants captured in the same DC setting that it will be noted by many to be so visually jarring as to be unacceptable for contectual viewing.

The critical reviews I imagine will continue to be extensive.

He may be--let´s say-- wrongly right about the matter:
They aren´t cliche´s exactly. They strive for novelty, which the author notes eclipses all other standards. Innovation trumps insight now. The obligation it imposes on the artist has become tiresomely predictable.

The absence of convention makes this thing so dreadful, but also most revealing of the subject. It´s garish, egotistical, the handwork of third-world agitprop factory workers--a real departure from the convention of being the work of a single discerning individual in the direct presence of the sitter.

The color is overwhelming, it stains indelibly. It´s iconic,opaque and superficial, lacking physical substance that would cast a shadow. It´s an apparition floating in sea of plastic green leaves engulfing him like a school of piranhas. They are already starting to devour him. This thing truly has no precedent; it is innovative.

The portrait gallery is valuable as a record of our presidents, going through you get a genuine sense of those men and their era. The president gets the portrait he deserves, as we get the president we deserve.

Obama´s picture is exactly that, a gaping sore amidst a gathering of generally admirable men. Some day he will go away, but that thing will remind us of all he was. It belongs to the ages.

This was a very educational read for me. And the L.dot comments too! I especially looked at the portrait by Diego Velázquez and then researched the portrait work by Titian & Raphael that define the medium. Mr. Mostert says: "Art is art when it exists to showcase the pure expression conveyed by the creator." Art has a largely spiritual element - it is a conveyor of the subtle non-material aspects of our lives. These painters were trying to ´make a statement´ and they only know how to do that by being gimmicky. Therefore the work is not honest. It is commercial & material. Someone called the pictures paint-by-number and that is sadly all they are.

What´s it like to feel powerless? A lieutenant in the Chicago Fire Department may find out. The fireman committed the grave sin of defending himself and his property from an aggressor. Now he is the target of a social media campaign to ex post facto punish him for having the audacity to protect what is rightfully his. Last summer, the unidentified firefighter left his Jeep idling on the West Side of the city (admittedly, not a bright thing to do anywhere in Chicago) when it was carjacked by 17-year-old Charles Macklin. The lieutenant, who is Hispanic, attempted to stop Macklin,

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

The FBI is many things to many people, but seen from the inside where I spent my career as an FBI agent, most of all it is a bureaucracy. The evident abuses of the vast investigatory powers of the Bureau to surveil the campaign of Donald Trump has left a paper and electronic trail as it jumped through the many procedural hoops required for Spygate to unfold. Based on a clue from the Strzok-Page texts and my understanding of the rules the FBI has to play by, it is possible to piece together a picture of how and why surveillance

By any reasonable account, the historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, resulting in an agreement pledging to work toward a stable and enduring peace (over six decades after the Korean armistice was signed at Panmunjom) was an incredible achievement. In fact, had Obama or Clinton achieved as much, we would expect a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue. North Korea has agreed to completely denuclearize and has begun the process, according to reports of satellite imagery, and has agreed to return the remains of U.S. military who perished in North Korea.

The left has created a macabre myth that runs counter to the whole experience of mankind. The left has persuaded the gullible masses of America, including, sadly, most conservatives, that "discrimination" by individuals and businesses is wrong and that it violates the Constitution. Precisely the opposite is true. All serious cognition and all honest moral judgments involve discrimination. When individuals and businesses are not free to discriminate, then the power to determine what is true and false and good and bad becomes the sole property of the state – or that even more odious creature, that lobotomized

We are in the midst of a spin battle over the Inspector General’s report issued yesterday. Because Inspectors General cannot release their reports without giving those named within it a chance to contest it, and must be able to defend every single word of it, they must stick to facts and completely documentable conclusions.
