An Excerpt from the Art Auction Catalog of George Berges Gallery (Artist Anonymous)

 

Catalog Item 3987: “Phone Call” (acrylic on paper; opening bid = $75,000)

This minimalist, neo-cubist painting was inspired by a phone conversation with a cabinet secretary (maximum duration = 15 minutes). The work is eminently accessible from both a conceptual and a budgetary perspective. Since this is part of an ongoing series of works by the artist, the collector may commission a version of the painting in specific colors to complement any room décor.

Catalog Item 4268: “Meeting with Light Refreshments” (oil on wood; opening bid = $150,000)

This fine example of 21st century surrealism evokes the spirit of a brief face-to-face encounter supplemented with coffee, cold beverages, and a selection of fresh fruit and pastries. Winning bids that are contingent on the exact titles or positions of attendees will be subject to a surcharge.

Catalog Item 4897: “Lincoln Bedroom” (mixed media on canvas; opening bid = $500,000)

This avant-garde pointillist work offers the artist’s interpretation of a unique experience: An overnight stay at the White House, followed by continental breakfast with the President. It is an ideal acquisition for display in the offices of a prestigious lobbying or consulting firm. No discounts for union representatives.

    My favorite is:

    Ants

    These are a group of paintings of the ants this daring artiste has rendered of the creatures that crawl all over the artist’s body when undergoing one of the many detoxification/rehabilitation sessions under the watchful eye and supervision of Dr. Jill.

    I gotta go with the still lifes, “A Bowl of Ukrainian Borscht” and “A Pile of Hundred Dollar Bills.”

    The acceptable way to accept Chinese money for political influence.

    I am speechless! This entire episode is surreal. After digging around in Trump’s trashcans and picking through his endless tweets looking for anything to raise an issue about, the MSM has taken on the role of the three monkeys, unable to see, hear, or speak of anything, no matter how blatant, that this president does or his family does and has done in the many years that he has held public office. Simply unbelievable. This must be the true post-modern art form, surreal blindness.

    Frankly, it’s hard to distinguish the parody from the reality. It’s cliche to say we’re living in a post-parody world but Hunter’s ‘art’ brings it into sharp relief — a bas-relief, if you will.
