Andy, I couldnt agree more, modern art that means squat to 99% of its audience is worthless junk that shouldnt have left the storage facility. Publicly displayed art is the vox humana, and if it isnt the voice of the people, the artist is a pretentious self indulgent that shouldnt have public or otherwise funding for his/her crap.
Im all for artistic freedom, but you’re free to make whatever you want in your pile of mashed potatoes at home. Dont put them in my streets and promenades where I have to look at them. Do something good, like Michelangelo, or DaVinci…what? Too hard? Perhaps another career choice is for you.
