99% of art is a useless lie, a sick leftover side effect of the 17th century notion of the artist as something more than an artisan, as more than a worker, as more than a blue collar fuck, brought about by the surge in individualism in the masses (it had always existed in the aristocracy) in another sick twist of the public mind to shove power into a more displaced position, i.e., the people. Before you know it, art is a commodity. As is most of it today. Because to admit that the average abstract crap (or even and especially the realistic crap) hanging at local coffee shops and bars is Art, is to admit that all Commercials, bicycle designs, Twinkie package designs, Barbie hair thread patterns, the way someone blows their nose, etc, as Art. This concept has been taken advantage of (just ask any ‘artist’ from an ‘Art’ academy) by many ‘Concept’ artists i.e. placing a frame around random garbage, having a portable museum to place around whatever etc etc but yes we’ve heard all this before what is my stupid point? That the entire culture of art in Any medium be it painting, visual, computer, music, theatre, etc is based upon a deep and completely accepted falsehood of the advanced spirituality or psychology of the artist, if not intelligence, then a unique response to the same suffering that we all suffer. Most art IS/= look how cleverly and/or elegantly, sexily, minimalistically (add your own adjective here) I responded to MY pain. Or My confusion, THis Is My interpretation, my self EXPRESSIOn, fucking SelF ExpressION, that demon king of Excuses, the last and only right ever Guaranteed bY LAW, explicitly Because It is so easily Controlled, confused, made into bickering and stupidity by heightening the Individualistic constituent TO the emotions associated I.E. People Are more SELFISH and INDIVIdualistic Than ever, yet MORE alike Than ever—when will we realize that we are given this right exactly because it becomes a commodity with no relevance to the truth like THE Media conglomerates Or the ART TRADE or the DIAMOND TRADE ..people should never ever ever buy art, I hate people who buy art, if you want art, make it yourself, …this thought makes me a poor artist (in money if not in that stupid euphemism ‘skill’) There Is NO need for painting because there is PHOTOGRAPHY, painting is A TOTally Selfish and masturbatory practice and all I gotta do for beauty is look at the random, ABSTRACT and infinitely beautiful CRACKs in the Fucking Ground that NO dark shoe wearing mopy music listening Artist could ever match-There is no need for POETRY THERE is Science and Math folding out in incomprehensible AND ABSTRACT! Languages and sentences speaking the kind of truth Impressionistic adjective spewers can’t even pass a 101 level class in- There is no need for MUSIC because there are fucking BIRDS and PEOPLE talking and CARS farting and Revving and the fucking HUM of the goddamn INTERState is more soothing and relaxing and true and representative of earth and mother and spirituality then BRIttany fucking Spears or the Fucking Strokes Or Froo Froo Bob Dylan greatful Slayer dead kennedies Busta Rhymes BUUllShit! ART IS EXTREMELY, TOTALLY, SUBLIMELY, INTENSELY, AND UTTERLY USELESS, FAKE, AND NOTHING MORE THAN THE EXTRA TWITTLINGS OF OUR MINDS TRYING TO CLAIM SOME SORT NONEXISTENT SELF-IMAGE COLLECTIVELY CREATING OUR STUPID FUCKING CULTURE.
And yes that makes it very beautiful indeed. But jezus hates Christ people, get over yourselves. Yer’all just as full of shit as I am, and I swear to god if I see another 200$ piece of 8 inch x 10 inch computer printed shit hanging at a coffee shop, I’m gonna fucking puke on it and sue the fuck out of you.
