The Weekend Art Thread (Art by moron Polynikes)

Apologies for last week's absence, I was enjoying what is left of Route 66.

This edition will be a short one, unfortunately, but wanted to still get it out there.

Thankfully you morons came in handy by submitting several interesting items and some of your artwork, so I won't have to resort to linking up a video of Devo doing Jocko Homo for forty-five minutes,

First up, moron art, this week exclusively by Polynikes:

"Traffic" Oil on Canvas 16x20, 2002.

"Into the Light" Oil on Canvas 20x30, 2002

Poly also submitted a more "realistic" work since you barbarians don't like anything after 1900:

"Dusk at the Cape" Oil on Canvas 25x30, 1998

Moron RHH submitted links to several acquaintances: a photographer, Joel Belmont, and his wife, Lili Belmont. Joel's photographic series are incredible, and definitely NSFW, imagine Mapplethorpe dropped into the late 1800s and with less bullwhips. Lili's watercolors have an abstracted depth that suggests a "heavier medium made light" and her figure series serve a fine counterbalance to Joel's "Human Condition."

Lastly, some more Robert Hughes snapping at bad art:



Skip ahead to 8:22 after Koons' goofy grin clears the screen for Hughes' blunt beat-down of identity art.

As always, if you wish to submit your work, please send JPEGS with title, medium, dimensions and year to theoneandonlyfinn(at)gmail.com.
