POETRY:The Holiday Gallery Artist... by Pena de la Voca
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, some say what they think other quietly not.
The poetic thought is illusive..
What is more important in your work:the level of skill or the subject matter ?
If your a political painter, why not just be a politician ?
If you really like the culture, why don't you just wear it ?
What is beauty ?
Perhaps no more the flowers bloom.
Have we forgotten what a bird looks like.
Up until now since the last three decades perhaps all art has been political one way or another..
A painting about border walls, no longer a painting of a beautiful river.
Picking tomatoes, no longer with pride.
Painting our culture with death always around its back.
A portrait of a beautiful woman, now exploited by society.
Using discarded industrial materials of mass consumption to reflect the earth.
Do we respect the decorative artist or the commercial painter ?
Is a painting of a fish or a building still important ?
What if I moved to Nebraska and painted corn husks ?
