Portrait of a Salesgirl...



The Tate gallery in England awards the Turner prize for art...Whoever wins becomes famous as an artist & wins money...I was looking at Tomma Abt's work, a 2006 winner, & seeing swastikas in her work, Googled Tomma Abt's & the word Nazi...Suprisingly an article came up, saying she & Damien Hirst, the guy who posted a call for a 15 foot Tiger shark in postal offices in Australia (by phone) & then displayed the dead killed shark in formaldehyde as art, - & 57 other artists were showing with a gallery in Berlin which used to be an old Nazi bunker...Hmmm...paranoia sets in...
Then I am reading about Takashi Murakami, a Japanese artist who was venerated at the Museum of Contemporary Art MOCA, with a huge show which included a gift shop & a Louis Vuitton boutique as part of the art...Murakami has a company which produces the kitsch part of his art oeuvre, called, wait for it, KaiKai Kiki...Now is it just me, or are there a lot of K's in that word? Hey, weren't the Japanese in bed with the Hitlers?
So, now I'm thinking, we're in a world which wants to blow up Israel, & possibly the United States by proxy, & all the big money in art is going to artists who seem to really like swastikas, dead things, & the KKK...Gee, Wally?
It's possible that I am just confabulating...It's possible...But seriously, KaiKai KiKi? C'mon, don't tell me it means something different in Japanese...Like our friend Hung lik a hors , it is what it is...They know...
As an afterthought, let's get all the people who haven't yet overdone the aspirin & still have functioning frontal lobes- let's get those people to stand up against this crap in art...Yes, crap...
Killing a cow & its calf to display it in formaldehyde, dissected (another Hirst work) is taxidermy not art...maybe the art of taxidermy, but still, c'mon, Gross...
Swastikas are illegal to show, & let's be honest , Tomma Abt's work is variations on that lovely (& just because you have a story does Not make it legal to display swastikas-not even if you are a survivor-sorry-it propagates the icon)...
Artists & galleries who show in old Nazi bunkers are not counter-culture, they are just f-cking Nazi sympathizers...F-ck!
The KKK is dangerous & real, & a Japanese guy naming his company KaiKai Kiki is not artistic, it is hate...A big MOCA gallery in California giving this guy a big show is just supporting hate...A Louis Vuitton shop in a Museum? What the F-ck???
Could normal people please stand up here? Or is everyone a f-cking anti-Semite now?
I mean, Really...

Of course, I am a total hypocrite...Me, with my maiden name & first initial being " S.S. " I could put myself on that list...& with my german paint & style...My blonde hair & blue eyes...I am one to talk...
