~from the SUBLIME . . to the downright CRASS / two fakes in one frame
FILE UNDER: GEORGIE PORGY, just took the DEFINITIVE .. DIVE.
it’s worth repeating.
from the SUBLIME . . to the downright CRASS !!
well, that’s how the ART WORLD, REALLY ROCKS !!
the extremes of the scene are: that amazing.
the HAVES who ‘think’ they are, are usually outed eventually, as the far . . bigger ‘HAVE-NOTS’.
esp when it comes to trying to claim a bonafide ‘creativity’ title.
you know, that three pointed ‘crown’ of which . . BASQUIAT always painted.

in another huge, myth-busting reality bites !! mis-step, KANYE WEST had GEORGE CONDO custom paint a huge BIRKIN bag for Kim, for Xmas.
so, yeah . .
if you were sitting on the fence regarding GEORGE CONDO, the definitive balancing act / has finally dropped to one side, and it’s NOT GOOD.
the other shoe has finally dropped,
and surprise, surprise . . NOT.
GEORGE CONDO is a FAKE.
George Condo . . is SO over now, it isn’t even funny.
he would have done better to paint a random cartoon face . . but ultimately all ‘posers’ reach the end of their rope, when the creative power just doesn’t match . . the hype.
if you live in NYC, you know only the real-ist losers . . walk around in their ‘selfies’ !!
i.e. hand-painted clothes or accessories with their own ‘art’, self-painted on it.
desperate or what. they pop-up at all kinds of openings . . . looking like art-bag ladies.
likewise, art blogs can also veer from the generous to the mean . . . !!
looking up GEORGE CONDO, I found a hilarious archival photo by WALTER ROBINSON . . .
I’m calling it: two fakes in one frame.
what . . CECILY, done with the transparent blouses ?!!
CECILY BROWN and GEORGE CONDO. . JULY 2000.
PHOTO BY WALTER ROBINSON, in artnet.
talk about REVENGE of the NERDS !!
when I ‘worked’ at artnet, every now and then .. they, meaning WALTER ROBINSON and CHARLIE FINCH . . would throw these intimate little gatherings to ‘celebrate’ Cecily, and her arrival in the Big Apple.
Cecily, never one to disappoint an art critic . . . always, but ALWAYS !! showed up in 100% sheer transparent blouses with absolutely no undergarments at all.
all I can say is, little ‘piggy snout’ nipples, was the definitive after word, and let’s leave it at that.
all the artnet ‘boys’, oftentimes including a few ‘lucky’ guests, like maybe ANTHONY HADEN-GUEST, would then be herded into a more private room, and I, would be left outside, wandering: wtf !!
I heard a few times that Anthony Haden-Guest had to be actually restrained by physical force, from ripping the sheer material to shreds. if you know the players at all, you know how right I am.
in fact, just between the two of us, ANTHONY HADEN-GUEST is a FAKE, too.
well, like I said.
that’s the art world, for ya.
don’t be having any illusions. rolls from sublime . . to pretty damn ugly, on a dime.
but, it’s fun to lift the curtains sometimes, if you’ve got the ‘goods’.
don’t believe me ?
