Giorgio Ghisi

Wouldn’t it be great if instead art continuing to march forward to its own destruction that perhaps a few artists would dissent and move art in the opposite direction, back toward an art of richness and complexity? Back toward the immense imaginative universes of artist’s works engraved by Giorgio Ghisi.

    Yes-agreed. I think you’ve got to lead the way.

    Thanks, M. I think that, as Max Beckmann said about teaching art, all that I can do is point. I wish that artists would start using their eyes. That’s what they’re there for. And stop reading the artspeak/art critic bullshit. It’s led the arts into a vapid wasteland of empty posturing. That’s one of the reasons I’ve less to say about the images that I’m posting… so that artists viewing the work can enter into what they’re viewing without the filters supplied by artspeak that does nothing more than distract from the thing itself.

    I have a dictum that says: the less there is to say about a work of art, the greater that work of art is.

    The more grandiose the art historical claims about vacuous works of art (Duchamp, Johns, Warhol, conceptual/minimal/installation art being prime examples) the more one should be objectively aware that this art has no staying power whatsoever. As any thinking person knows, in time the theories and pompous justifications will vanish and what will be left are urinals, bronze beer cans, monochrome canvases and piles of detritus.

  3. I agree with Marcia. Lead the way!! Thanks for sharing Ghisi!

    What one strives for is so far away, so deep, so beautiful… that there’s nothing one can say about it…

    Thanks MK. If I’m going to be leading, I’m going to have to come up with some more dictums. Perhaps I can borrow this one from a friend who wrote me the other day about why the art world is a total disaster.

    “Art and money do not mix, but then money poisons everything.”

    Wonderful quote from Willa Cather. Perhaps another dictum” “There’s nothing one can say about it.”
