April 27, 2010: Canadian Record
It appears a new record will be set for a painting by a Canadian artist.

I actually do like some minimalist works, and so I looked carefully at this and began to see the faint outlines of a landscape... and then I scrolled down a bit and it all moved and I realised it was muck on my laptop screen. Sooo disappointed! No, I don't get it.

If I ever meet the person that pays money for this, I'll slap the shit out of 'em.

If you do a chalk & charcoal filter on it in photoshop, it's pretty clearly a still-life of a mickey-mouse doll (seriously).

It's still better than DuChamp.

To quote from an episode of "The Flintstones", "I don't know what the artist got for this, but he should'a got life.".

It reminds me of a beige excel spreadsheet, which in turn makes me think of work, which makes me depressed. This "art" sucks.

i see two slightly blue guys standing facing each other..... possibly peeing toward each other.

I can't imagine why not much of this guys work survives. I can just see someone boxing up all his stuff, going "All this canvas, you think he would have painted something on here, eah?" Then chucking it out.

Hook me up with that buyer quick! I'll do it for them for $2.5 mil and it won't be old and stale!

Hillrick, call it The Great Beige North.

I may have seen one of this artist's works at MOMA when I was about 10. I remember a wall-sized work, with pencil lines on the wall in three different directions creating a grid pattern.

And at age 10, you're liable to get an honest impression rather than being brainwashed by the "initiated".

Don't even get me started here. I've seen shit selling for as much (not by a Canuck, mind you) that would make Agnes Martin's piece look like the Mona Lisa.

Oh, you've seen Pollock too.

I think the most rediculous exhibition i ever saw was a series of paintings, each on canvas, approx. 8 feet by 8 feet, ALL painted solid black, some with a red, runny line on one edge. All at the Met.
ToastyOhs Tuesday Apr 27 04:12 PM
Just think, you could film yourself doing that and call it performance art! Then would would be a world renowned painter and crazy person.

Another case of someone having more money than brains. Give me a good ole' dogs playing poker any day!
