He's obviously not a real artist...You can tell exactly what the pictures represent. Sheesh. How unoriginal. How prosaic. How academicien.

Worse yet: stupid, fat, middle-aged people from the provinces and who do not know tout le monde qui compte would like these pictures! Quelle horreur! C'est 'Disney', ca.

That's not true.

What would you prefer to see - some red squares on a black background? Is that real art? Something I used to do when I was 6 years old? Grow up..

This artist IS an artist - the paintings are not Roccoco or Baroque or Mannerist - they are in a way impressionist, modernist, but actually art deco..

Look at the aerial perspective he employed - the further away the object, the less detail, the more ambiguous. Now take a look down Lex. Ave - its the same (especially in a Manhattan summer).

Look at some paintings by Carravagio, Titian, Rembrandts, or any other of the great masters.

There are few painters today who can even do something close to what they did, with either a pencil or a brush.

Odd Nerdrum comes to mind.

I...was...being...sarcastic...

:eek:

I was lampooning the official party line of the conceptualist so-called avant-garde.

I think the pictures are great. I've always taken exception with the standard British prejudice that Americans have no sense of irony but, for you, I'll make an exception, Gregory.

Sarcasm. Irony.

Difficult concepts on the Internet.

I guess that's why they provide us with :) and ;)

Fair enough on teh irony thing./ I thought I had laid it on so thick that it would be obvious. I gues there really people who think like that.


About Nerdrum: It's hard to tell from the web...something as unique as art...it looks a bit eery to me, I don't find them instinctively attractive.

As a sort of modern version of NY views I like her stuff a lot:
