Killer, pencil on paper, acrylic on canvas, 2022
The most interesting thing is how Fine art especially accepts trends without any criticism and schools and universities teach these newly created doctrines like the word of God. Fine art thrives with trends like fashion does and doesn’t think or know any better, which makes one think how legitimate their teachings and clicks are. How effective in changing societies more just Fine art is, one can and should doubt. Making those luxury goods, are we now? Social justice is also a sellable object. You are on the right side, the side of the oppressed and that is what media loves to be too. Many artists face this reality as they are forced to think and say the right thing and if they don’t, they are silenced, removed from sight and their reputation is smeared. How just and wise that is, one must and should ask, especially the institutions that wash themselves clean with social justice. You are doing advertising, not social justice.
