They call this art?!

Here’s what bugs me. On the sidewalk, this monstrosity is on display, and I’m supposed to be impressed. I’m not. It’s nothing short of moronic. But, maybe I’m just simple-minded.

Inside the studio (behind this “art” thing), on the other hand, some great material hung on the walls. The stuff on display is something like a blend of Francis Bacon’s treatment of Pope Innocent, touches of Viking heritage from across the Baltic Sea and a depressing use of color that reflects the Eastern European experience under the Soviet Union.

So, why the hell, I ask, did they put plumbing on display? Yeah, let’s make sure nobody sees the real talent by telling the public to like this garbage.

Pretty soon, we’ll start calling Home Depot an art gallery.
