I'll have to look into this some more. Do you have any pictures from the exhibit?

Donald Frazell

Please, there is no art in LA, as shown by your website. Where have you been the last five thousand years? Does any of this childish scribbling, self involved therapy, exhibitionist need for attention have ANYTHING to do with art? No. Art has a function in society, but in the last forty years has lost its way as society ceased to grow, became as decadent as the mid nineteenth century, and lost all meaning. for yes, art does reveal meaning.

Art is about the eternal, and who we are as a people. I has a function, to visualize our strengthss and overwhelm our weaknesses with a sense of purpose. Of god. Of what we must do to thrive and survive. But in our decadent times, we have become lost, soft, weak, self absorbed. The art academies filling us with fluff to hide our corrupt souls. No, not organized religion at all, though art has always been at its service. It is about finding the patterns of eternity, the forms that convey humanities needs, and growth. It is about who we are in the universe, our relationships with each other, and the world.

It is about We. Us. Not I. The glorification of the individual is our downfall. No one matters more than any one else, and our role is to strengthen humanity. Not party and whine about a world it knows nothing about. The art world is completely useless, inbred, and diseased. It must be put down like a rabid dog, as the Academy as by the post Impressionists, outsiders, who saw life, explored it, and found the eternal, the universal, purpose.

Read my article at ArtNewsBlog about how we got into this situation. Unlike most art students, I know a little about the world, its history, its various peoples, and actually working for a living, raising a family and being a part of life, and losing it. From the heart of the LBC.

Imperial Clothing

Art collegia delenda est

I cannot discern how siena's work distinguishes itself, in principle or substance, from doodling.


so donald thinks he can define art ?

Non-Slice is beautifull... thrilling... a state I wish to reach in more ways than one...




I really like the art work you feature and I think 'Imperial Clothing' isn't wearing any.


very good !!


Just caught wind of a glass art auction from Dave Chihuly’s school, pilchuck, going on in seattle - Oct 30th, 10 pm E/9pm C
They said it will be broadcast live via auctionnetwork.com, along with a tool that lets Internet viewers to bid remotely against the floor. -- nice for me, cause I’m out of state!
Here’s a youtube video about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN3nA3P2Nfw

Kudos to Donald Frazell for the above comments. I agree especially with his comment, "The art world is completely useless, inbred, and diseased. It must be put down like a rabid dog..."

Anna Meenaghan, Contemporary Artist

What a great site you have created here. I am a contemporary artist myself and always enjoy seeing the art of fellow artists and join discussions about art. I just recently have started my own site and hope that over time it will grow into an online art community where artists and art enthusiasts alike can meet and discuss their thoughts on art. Will recommend your blog to my friends. Will come back for more and wish you all the best.

does anybody remember a candy called "slap stick'?

This is what this art reminds me of. Not my favorite.
