if only andy rooney had built his entire career on saying “picasso, picasso, picasso,” over and over again. will smile for one whole minute, non-stop, the day garrison keillor joins andy rooney in hell.
garrison keillor is like a boy who’s in love with a girl and he keeps making her mix cds but the mix cds have like nickleback or spin doctors love songs on them. but the girl likes them. and then everyone else is like garrison and the girl’s parents.
Q: How far can you go with out-sourcing the painting?
Hirst: You’ve always got to believe that you can train anybody. The difference is between art and craft. I’ve always been careful to not hire somebody who’s an absolutely brilliant painter, because then you kind of rely on their talent, whereas it’s much better to believe anybody can do this.
are y’all angrier because you think those pieces in the video (other than the picassos) are great art or because you reflexively can’t stand when anyone says anything you consider to be art isn’t art…?
personally i think this is a ridiculous debate on both sides. rooney is as ridiculous to proclaim some sculptures art and others not as whatever experienced art critic is. it doesn’t really matter. but then again i’ve been starting to wonder if all this literary knowledge is just as pointless as sports stats or the kardashians or whatever. everyone picks what they like and derides the rest.
