digital collage: Baffling Mysteries x2


Why are the masses not concerned with art? Why does art remain the privilege of
certain educated sectors of the bourgeois class?
- Situationist International, 1964

.............why indeed...............or has Tate Modern (London) changed all that? "Look, a Damien Hirst exhibition!" 
                 if Mr & Mrs people now embrace art more than ever before is it only in terms of Tate Modern attendance figures & do they matter, really (half being tourists)? 
                                                                is it only in terms of what a sector of London's middle classes wish to be so as they educate their children in a form of indoctrination?
                                                                                                           is it all a bit Blair's Britain Pop YBA Oasis-at-Downing Street again?
                                                or are the proles actually using this portal (internet) to enlighten themselves regarding visual treats on offer by both contemporary artists & historical.............a revolution of the eyeballs? & even more revolutionary: are they themselves actually making art?!!!! more of them making art?
.................................................what the hell..................................................................................
I am no 'fine artist'
but I am working class
neither of which matters to you....................so here are some pictures...............two versions...........spinning on the horror comic theme, as I like to do..............perhaps the red star is cold war juju..............a hex on the capitalist state of mind....the horror!
