I’ll be honest – I hate art. Most of it makes zero sense to me and I believe that it makes zero sense to everyone…they just want to be pseudo-intellectual by saying how “deep” and “meaningful” the art is. Really, the artist responsible is laughing at how gullible regular people are. Yes, laughing at you, pseudo-intellectual. Kind of like Scientology.
I can barely think back on all the art I saw in Europe without wanting to hyperventilate. Not because it was memorable, but because I was in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence crying because there was NO way to get out of the endless hallways. Literally no exit for 1,930,239,048,392,080,438,920,849,302 of the SAME painting. The painting of the SAME ugly woman with the SAME ugly, naked baby. Gross.
This artist (Kevin Van Aelst) makes art that is interesting from real life things. And I like that.
*Sidenote: This commentary is a knock on art, not religion.
