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.

We are on the verge of a huge political explosion. While there have been calls for a special counsel to investigate the DOJ and FBI scandals, and many conservatives have been outraged at the seeming passivity of “Gentleman Jeff” Sessions (aka, Sessionzzz in some quarters), it now is clear (as I have already figured) that a grand jury far outside the Beltway already is hearing evidence dug up by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose report is now believed to be coming in April.

It’s a rule of thumb for alert readers that when a politician is caught doing something embarrassing or criminal, if no political party is specified, you can safely bet that he or she is a Democrat. Something similar appears to be at work with terroristic acts. Consider the incident on Monday in which a woman named Lasandra Johnson appeared to deliberately crash her car into a Broward Sheriff’s Office in Pembroke Park, Florida, carrying accelerants that caused it to burst into flames. The local newspapers, the Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald, both reported the rather dramatic incident. (snip) Neither paper mentioned

Jordan Peterson, the Canadian clinical psychologist, is having an enormous impact on our culture. His refusal to use legally mandated language has reverberated around the world. He is obviously rattling leftists as they continue to make hysterical claims about him. The most recent and long-winded example comes from Nathan J. Robinson, the editor of Current Affairs.

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

President Donald Trump yanked the government back to the brink of a shutdown on Friday morning with a tweet threatening “a VETO” of a $1.3 trillion spending bill that Congress had cleared just hours earlier. Trump’s declaration of a possible veto — citing the spending bill’s lack of full funding for his border wall and attention to undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers — comes as many lawmakers who would have to override his rejection or pass a stopgap funding measure are already on the way out of Washington for a two-week recess.

A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

One of my liberal friends admitted to me recently that there is a certain virtue to losing gracefully. She was referencing her disappointment with the mean-spirited salvos Hillary Clinton delivered during her recent visit to India, an outburst closer to being disgraceful than full of grace. I’ve been trying to figure Hillary out for almost a half century, ever since I found myself part of an alumnae audience listening to the Wellesley Class of 1969’s graduation spokesperson -- known then as Hillary Rodham -- erupt in condescending anger at the commencement’s guest speaker.

As Jed Kolko, chief economist with employment website Indeed.com, pointed out regarding the data, "The rate at which California has been losing people to other states has accelerated in the past couple of years, in part because of rising housing costs … more people moved out of California to other states than moved in from other states.

A couple years ago, salmon passed tuna as the most popular fish in the United States. Our doctors have told us to eat more of it; our fitness and diet regimens have put it in heavy menu rotation. The problem is not all salmon is created equal. More than 90 percent of the fresh salmon eaten in this country comes from giant fish farms, and those farms have problems. Big ones.
