Remember artist Mark Rothko, who once whistfully proclaimed, “Silence is so accurate”? Here he is with one of his “masterpieces”:
Well, at least Rothko dealt in the world of the tangible. Our idiot elites have become zombies who fall for the “con” in art..
Salvatore Garau, an Italian trickster, produced a recent example of expensive non-art. His “immaterial” sculpture Io Sono (I Am) sold for $18,000. The piece does not exist. What the purchaser received for their money was the artiste’s word salad poor excuse for an explanation and a gen-u-ine “certificate of authenticity.” The patron must keep a five-foot-square space available for the nothing to be on display; fortunately, it does not require any special lighting or climate control. What a bargain.
