As I mentioned previously in ‘Art Responses‘, the more I look at art the more I think that there is nothing much new to say or do. I believe that the universe is limited visually, and artists keep repeating things over and over again. Compositions, structures, placements, etc. Somehow, we are constrained by the limitations of physics. Here, I present a new set of works for comparison. Some of them are more coincidental then others. However, some works are more than just coincidences. They are actual responses to what appeared in art earlier. This is not a new discussion and my blog entry is a simple exercise on the matter.
11. Wrapped objects
12. Squares with Concentric Circles
13. Architectural Models
14. Cut Canvas
15. Missing Bodies
16. Stretched Footballs
17. Iconic Gold
18. Shit Art
19. Careless Swing
20. Sculptural Titillation

I disagree with you!
Well, we look a lot the art history for inspiration. But, I truly think things are changing, and, everytime art is saying about the present moment.
I accept your disagreement 🙂
Yes, it is mostly about the present moment. However, most artists are still repeating old formulae and adding things here and there. We are piling the new onto the old. A good archaeologist knows it well 🙂
