Images and occasional writing by Duncan Alexander
I don't get it. Care to explain it for us art luddites?
Hi Lane,Well as the warning says, bad art history jokes ahead. Here's the derivative image: http://www.metmuseum.org/special/john_baldessari/view_1.asp?item=0John Baldessari is a guy whose work I like a lot. It's conceptual, but funny conceptual.
Pretty obscure. I didn't get it, either, and I've got my art degree! That's not an image that gets reproduced very often. I've never seen it anywhere. Plus, it's not like most of Baldessari's art (the head dots stuff).
So, clearly, I hadn't visited AFC yet for the day. Heh. My lunchtime art blog reading usually goes like this: Tom Moody (even though he annoys me), I check my own blog for comments, then I check you, then AFC. Then after that, usually C-Monster.
