I know I’m an Art snob. Art can borrow from all sectors; fashion, design, music, dance, illustration, etc., etc. and vice versa. But there’s something when work looks more commercial than academic that makes me really question where the divisions exist.
And Austin is not alone. Dallas has Brian Gibb right now (click on current exhibit and click through until ’bout the third to last photo). It’s interesting to think ’bout what they are saying or at least suggesting. And I question my antagonism for these professional/ commercial aspects creeping into art, when someone like Matt Rodriguez or some other street/ graff artist doesn’t offend me as much. Wuzupwitdat?
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
