In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, New York artists Allbriton Robbins and Hema Patel transformed rubble from the storm into vibrant works of art. The team painted bright colors and patterns on driftwood and debris collected from the wreckage, and are now selling the colorful artifacts online to benefit those who lost so much.
Personally, this isn’t my idea of art nor of what art should be based upon; at least, not of art as I know and understand it. Perhaps I’m wrong; it wouldn’t be the first time. Nevertheless, the intentions here are apparently so laudable, the concept so genuine, that it’s difficult to be critical without feeling a pang of conscience. But these works of art, sold at the Drift Relief website, range in price from $150 to $950 (btw: many are already sold out); those sort of prices compel me to question this form of art.
You never know when inspiration will give you a big, sloppy kiss on the lips. I was at the museum store at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Andy Warhol retrospective when I noticed that all the Warhol posters were 40% off. While a normal person would think, “Wow, I should get one and frame it,” I (who am not normal) thought, “Wow, I’m going to buy every poster they have in stock and decoupage them onto my kitchen cabinets.” You have to admit, the kitchen is an eye-popper.
BTW: I just came in here to get a cup of coffee.

The former Beatles drummer may not be a great artist, but by funneling the profits from his pictures into charities, he’s joined the cutting edge of the art world, where artists blending their art with social action is called “relational aesthetics,’ Blake Gopnik writes. Daily Beast

British artist David Shrigley is best known for his humourous drawings that make witty and wry observations on everyday life. Trained as a fine artist, his deliberately crude graphic style gives his work an immediate and accessible appeal, while simultaneously offering insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. This exhibition, his first major survey show in London, will cover the full range of Shrigley’s diverse practice. This extends far beyond drawing to include photography, books, sculpture, animation, painting and music. Spanning the upper galleries of the Hayward Gallery, the show will also include new artwork and site specific installations.

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
