I miss Guy Gilchrist…
Best explanation for why the chicken crossed the road ever!
Agnes has clearly never read the comment section for a comic strip.
Wow, thank heaven’s for the artist’s explanation about what the first 3 panels meant. I could never have understood what the first 3 panels meant without that artist’s note!
“The is”? “THE IS”?! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
Anyway, today’s strip is a nice critique of capitalism.
so, what was your intent?
Well, I’m glad that is cleared up.
Art is whatever you can get away with. $500,000 pile of metal balls near Edmonton, AB and $500,000 statue of dog poop in San José, CA.
Authorial intent is by no means irrelevant, just unenforceable; ultimately, of course, audience response is up to the audience. But if art is to be a form of communication as well as a form of expression, both ends need to make an effort to meet in the middle.
Are statues, say of Confederate generals, a work of, let’s not say art, an artist?
It is all too clear to me now.
Olivia Jaimes is a pseudonym forCaptain Obvious.
In “Godel, Escher, Bach” there’s a little quiz asking you to differentiate between computer generated artspeak and quotes from human art critics.
Someone’s been reading Barthes.
Never want to see Gilchrist again.
Typo in panel 4!!!
Reader’s Digest had a little paragraph or so about an artist who was 100 years old. “I don’t want anybody should break a head looking at my painting and asking what does it mean,” I recall him saying. “So I write down what it means and I put it in an envelope and tape it to the back of the canvas.”
Is this strip just a stab at the people who say the new art style sucks?
