Mission Accomplished

Numbers 22 and 23 on the list of communist goals entered into the Congressional record back when Congress vigorously opposed communism:

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

For example,

The artist, Thomas Houseago, is such a big shot in the art world that he works out of a 25,000 square foot studio. According to the print version of Friday’s Wall Street Journal, the shapeless, awkward, and meaningless grotesquerie above will fetch $400,000.

That’s a real bargain, compared to the $800,000 this one will knock you back:

Wade-Guyton-untitled

The work is by Wade Guyton, who is so devoid of creativity that he could not even come up with a title for it.

The point of pretending this crap is art is the same as for all things liberal: to corrode and destroy Western Civilization. There can be no real art — which uplifts, inspires, and would cause us to take pride — so long as museums are full of ugly moronic trash.

This same approach has been applied to most every aspect of our culture, which is how they reduced us to the point that Obama could be democratically elected.

On a tip from Varla.

    LOL Totally reminds me of my high school days.

    I was friends with the son of a “famous” artist, Robert Moskowitz. Here’s a sample:

    http://popartmachine.com/art/2009-MCAS.009CS103/ROBERT-MOSKOWITZ-UNTITLED-1974

    As you can see, he shares that lack of creativity to even come up with a title. So avant-garde…

    You can read more about him on Wiki:

    In looking around, I actually found Erik’s, my friend from high school, website; here’s one of his “art” films (he’s the bearded ginger):

    I flush better works of art every morning.

    When in college, I took an art class. the profgessor said to make the art abstracts and not representational at all. I did a rough chalk pastel drawing from a photograph I took of this band that was playing and the lead singer and guitarist were headbanging while kneeling on the floor. I drew it then I mounted up upsidedown for grading. To her it looked completely abstract.

    The professor was so impressed, she asked my permission to take a photo of it for her archives, which she did for the “best pieces” her students created.

    Meanwhile, I’m in the back of the classroom telling another student of what I did. He turned his head sideways, saw that it was a representational drawing and stifled a laugh.

    True story.

    It’s truly amazing how the wealthy and “enlightened” will convince themselves to spend tons of money on something a four year old kid could have made. Perhaps it is they P.T. Barnum was referring to when he said, “there’s one born every minute”.

    Soon enough the minimalism will have reached such an apex that hipsters and other latte-sippers will be paid obscene sums of money to sit around in trendy lofts, never doing anything.

    “[inhale] It’s like, so, uh, simple man. [inhale] Like me sitting here is a statement in minimalism.”

    From Faith of the Fallen by Terry Goodkind:

    In a half circle around the plaza, the walls were covered with the story of man’s inadequacy. All around them, man was shown small, depraved, deformed, impotent, terrified, cruel, mindless, wicked, greedy, corrupt, and sinful. He was depicted forever torn between otherworldly forces controlling every aspect of his miserable existence, an existence incomprehensible in its caldron of churning evil, with death his only escape into salvation.

    Those who had found virtue in this world, under the protection of the Creator’s Light, looked lifeless, their faces without emotion, without awareness, their bodies as unbending as cadavers. They stared out at the world through a vacant, mindless stupor, while all around them danced rats, through their legs wriggled snakes, and over their heads flew vultures.

    In the vortex of this torrent of tortured life, this cataclysm of corruption, this depravity and debauchery, rose up Richard’s statue in bold, glowing opposition. It was a devastating indictment of all around it. The mass and weight of the ugliness surrounding Richard’s statue seemed to shrink back into insignificance. The evil of the wall carvings seemed now to be crying out at their own dishonesty in the face of incorruptible beauty and truth.
    The two figures in the center posed in a state of harmonious balance. The man’s body displayed a proud masculinity. Though the woman was clothed, there was no doubt as to her femininity. They both reflected a love of the human form as sensuous, noble, and pure. The evil all around seemed as if it was recoiling in terror of that noble purity.

    More than that, though, Richard’s statue existed without conflict; the figures showed awareness, rationality, and purpose. This was a manifestation of human power, ability, intent. This was life lived for its own sake. This was mankind standing proudly of his own free will. This was exactly what the single word at the bottom named it: LIFE
    That it existed was proof of the validity of the concept. This was life as it should be lived-proud, reasoned, and a slave to no other man. This was the rightful exaltation of the individual, the nobility of the human spirit.
    Everything on the walls all around offered death as its answer. This offered life.

    There are artists like you describe. They are called installation artists.

    Glenn Beck is the GREATEST LIVING AMERICAN ARTIST, and that means he is the best Artist world-wide.

    I was at the local art museum with the X, and caught up with her as she expressed her feeling of obligation to admire a painting. It was… rather large. I took it in for a moment, and I think she was insulted that my comment on it was: “aside from footprints, that could just as well be his dropcloth.” I’m sure you know the one I mean. Or at least one very like it.

    The whole art “industry” is a scam on top of a scam, waiting for someone to point out that the emperor has no clothes, and man, it drives these people batshit crazy when you do that.

    “It’s truly amazing how the wealthy and “enlightened” will convince themselves to spend tons of money on something a four year old kid could have made.”

    Theatre director Trevor Nunn once told Damien Hirst he’d bought one of his paintings for £27,000. Hirst replied it was actually the work of his 2 year old son and a 10 year old friend.

    It’s a silver lining of sorts that the (con) artists who produce this junk don’t even bother to hide their contempt for the idiots who buy it.

  • IslandLifer

    I have a friend in the NL who is an art student. I don’t want to be entirely rude but I’ve, in a round about way, told her it was garbage. Modern art is apparently the ‘big deal’ now and they are being pushed to create pure garbage. Her project was dipping an old pair of boots and a skirt in wax. WHAT?!!!!

  • Judith M.

    That’s nothing. I just heard Yoko Ono’s performance art piece on the Tammy Bruce show. It sounded like a live vivsaection.

    Houseago is a fraud, he has plagiarized my work for the last time.

    Just last night I created that same figure in my 250 cu inch toilet bowl. Mine was better though because of the way I used corn for texture. Wish I would have sold it instead I hit flush. My art is not for sale.

  • Jodie

    When I was in high school, I made a ceramic ashtray in art class for my mom. It looked good before it went into the kiln, but when it came out, it was a hideous mess. Thank goodness it wasn’t as bad as that thing in the photo above.

  • AC

    In today’s zero-common-sense school culture, Jodie would have been suspended for manufacturing tobacco paraphernalia.

  • Jodie

    You’re right AC. And I can only imagine what they would have done (with today’s thinking) to my parents, who had ashtrays heaping with cigarette butts all around the house.

    PS – My dad lived a long life and rarely got sick and my mom is still going strong – when she’s not working at her job, she does volunteer work at the hospital.
