Recently while blogging I have been criticized by those who claim I have never been "solicited"(interesting term, as to pimping) by any LA galleries. I forgot all about this one, as I have only attempted at three as we are a rather superficial and adolescent bunch. One was told it was closed to new artists, as there is a divide between old money and its focus on closed artwork for investment purposes, "Masters" only, meaning dead.
Another which was reopening after carrying Modern art decades earlier, but now turned into contempt art as there isn't much else in LA, told me to go to Frisco or Portland. I don't fit in here. No shit.
LA is for the nouveau riche, agents, studio heads and real estate robber barons..
The third was LA Artcore in fall 2008. Lydia Takeshita, the founder and head, immediately bought several photos I had, and put me down for a two man show of "untrained' artists in May of 2010. She vehemently promised me and showed me where she had me scheduled. As I don't care for much they show at either of their two sites, in front of MoCA and at the Brewery, I hadn't gone in a year. I looked at their 2010 schedule to contact about what works to bring, and was told I wasn't scheduled and we had been replaced by two Asian girls with rice paper works. How stereotypical and original is that.
In other words, I have been banned in LA.
Thank you, I cant think of much better cred than that.
Can you think of anything more hypocritical? But then it is the Academic/Museo/Gallery complex of investment for the nouveau riche and their parties. Political Correctness is its cover and muzzle. We can't have the search for Truth creep into the "discussion" now can we. I have been banned for blogging my opposition to the soulless, sexless, sensually and mentally deprived artscene. Where frontin pseudo intellectual nonsense and voyuerism of games, toys and therapy is the goal. Decadence.
The product of the Age of Meism and Excess.
That age is over.
