THE EMPEROR'S NEW PAINTING...
Here's my favorite steaming pile of horse shit from the news this week:
A young French artist is being prosecuted for planting a kiss on an all-white canvas in a gallery by American abstract painter Cy Twombly. This all-white painting is allegedly valued at $2.84 million dollars.
Not pennies: dollars.
Some pretentious asshole bastard painted a canvas ALL ONE COLOR and this is deemed a piece of art worth more than most of us will see in a lifetime. What a load of crap! They think cleaning/restoring the painting will cost in the neighborhood of $50,000.
Staggering. Earl Scheib could fix that painting for $99.99. I'm just saying...
I say good for that heifer for planting some color on the thing that at least made it interesting.
