I am an Anthropologist and an Artist. I am Pagan. I believe in freedom of self expression and the celebration of diversity. The posts you see here are extensions of my passions and my personality. This is equal parts research, inspiration, and obsession. Ask me what ever you want, but expect gonzo-intelligent answers. I own only the images I claim as mine. Caution: Adult Contents 18+
I really don’t agree and quite frankly, find this distasteful.
Ranestone, what… don’t you agree with? exactly? The post, the pictures, the fact that I reblogged it, what? I’m honestly curious, nothing else. However, if you find it distasteful, why put it on your blog just to say you personally don’t find this appealing?
Art, intentionally or not, provokes discussion, and discussion provokes learning (hopefully, haha). You don’t have to agree with it to talk about it, and I haven’t been so disgruntled in a long time. I felt that the artist either didn’t understand the original works’ history/mood/story or they are being intentionally antagonist against 21st century people by accusing them of being dull and lifeless. I don’t appreciate ignorance being touted as brilliance, nor do I support the alternative, which is that the artist believes their audience to be too dumb, too dull, or too egotistical (they think that the painting isn’t talking about them). What do you think?
