The american art world today has fallen into a state of excessiveness. Aritst who make ugly and dramatic works of art. For the record I do not think this is “bad”, for to me all art is worth it. The movement has been compared to rococo. They are mostly in art fairs. No artist is immediately recognizable in this indulgent stylet. The realist who paint in a photographic style are cherished online throughout every platform. I plan on painting a completely photorealistic painting soon. But of what?... hmm.. Maybe Microsoft Paint? Perhaps. I love that program. I am also very afraid. I am afraid that the American world I inhabit will collapse into meaningless ruin soon. Will that happen in my lifetime? I certainly hope not. I know for certain that collapse is inevitable. For it is western tradition to rise and fall.
