    Gotcha. We'll all be better off if only the ordained scholars blow all the hot air around. The rest of us will be willing to forfeit our opinions, I'm quite sure.

    I wasn't trying to group dilettantes and scholars together, but I do believe that art critical theory is partially to blame for some of the pretentiousness.

    My point was that artists that do are not necessarily validated by others opinions or pocketbooks.

    I got the joke and am guilty of being a non artist and talking about it...so I am the worst of the two evils.:lol:

    Being a naughty perspectivist regarding aesthetics, part of my joke is that I, the critic, am worse than the artist, or the non-artist combined.

    B-b-but you've ALWAYS been the naughty perspectivist...and critic. I thought it was why you were hired and that you did your job to perfection?

    If only I could cash in on the devious art of distraction, possibly one thing I am fair at, without the suicide-mind of simulacrum-masochists, without the Skinnerian sadism of market-magicians.

    Oh, I hate Nike, because they are the wrong ones to always be right, especially on Valentine's!

    Art - Just do it.

    I remember seeing a particular Van Gogh once at the NY Met. Don't know the name. Sun, wheat field. I already liked Vinny's work, but yeah, in person, it was phenomenal. Like someone sprinkled MSG in his paints. Just "better".

    That said, this was a painting where he chose not to be extra subtle. He didn't paint it, and then paint OVER it with all BLACK (or is it bLAck, or BlaCk) enticing us to see stuff that isn't there.

    To add to the hilarity, sometimes even the unwashed can immediately see the genius of the art in a thumbnail pic....go figure.:D

    No, not that one. It was one of this type. I seem to recall there were a few similar ones in the exhibition. But the one I'm thinking of was very large, and the SUN was so striking. Up close, it looked like crap. Each brushtroke looked like a friggin' shingle it was so coarse. But step back 20 feet, and it was amazing.

    But if I had to choose between a real Rothko, and a Van Gogh print? It would depend if I had to look at it, or if I could sell it.

    TLDR

    Sure, you can pick one up for $46 million, but after you swap out the pickups, pots, caps and tuners, you're looking at $60 million.

    I may well find a link between inanimate exorbitance and Beyoncé's venerable Cancun shuffle, but my circadian incontinence known only by the affectionate moniker of "iPhone-nutpepper" keeps me from doing anything of artistic value.

    My theory is that rectangles have (thus far) not prevented or dissuaded the use of emojis.

    So regretfully:

    Here are some emojis to give you all (hopefully) much pleasure:

    Well, yellow and blue do make green. In this case, a LOT of green...

    The color of coin and jealousy, unfortunately here in the land I live in, it would seem, they are intertwined in a morose dance.

    The calculated cultural accoutrements might be the sinew that is touched too easily by those who don't have much to gain from either art or commerce.

    I can not trust the painter to talk, or the child to see the painting new, or the curatorial parade to carousel the proper benefactors through the echo-rooms.
