How did we get to,..here?

Modern art,…Is it all Bollocks?

well obviously not,..but a lot of it is,

billionaires can buy anything, for any price,.. it doesn’t matter anymore if a jasper johns goes for half a billion,…

or even somehow,..a jeff koons,.. ?? and it surely will one day,.

but sadly that still won’t feed any hungry families, alas,…and thats also an awful lot of anyone else’s art too,..

avarice is a terrible thing for humanity, but it sells a lot of modern art,..and its the current trend to spend up big,..

And how has modern art,..in just a few decades, massively outstripped the value given to the great old masters?

How is a Cy Twombly blackboard with 6 lines of circular scribble worth $70m,..? Its more than a Rubens or a Rembrandt, or a Monet..in which there is more skill factor in 3 sq inches of painting? I could make you one of these for a couple of hundred dollars, which would still be robbing you….or you could make your own,..?

also,..sometimes its very difficult to tell the difference between

the great god of,… “Consistency’

and the lesser god of,… ‘Repetition’

It would be very difficult to explain to a child in some impoverished country that these lines of scribble could transform their families life forever, by its value,…How silly would you feel,..trying to,..?

Anything is worth,..what someone is prepared to pay for it,..perhaps there lies the corkscrew of truth,…? But how did we manage to sidestep such skilled craftsmanship, and instead, celebrate and elevate,..the trinkets,..? If you have $70m,..why do you want to spend it on trinkets,..?
