Path II
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:58:36 AM »

Next week I'll contact Christie's and see if they're interested. I can make the print wall-sized if they think that'll help to sell it. Should sell for more than Rhine II since it has a more interesting background.

Sorry, Russ, even with your D800, a.k.a. The Detail Enhancer, I can not discern what's that in the background: dinosaur droppings, perhaps?

Those are hay bales, modern style!

So far this ain't doing much for me..

For a minimalist inspired piece, I find the oranges distracting. It's probably because I don't understand the conventions though.

I'll start the bidding at $300,000.

The shadows of the central trees bother me. I fancy they would do better more nearly parallel with the fence or, failing that, completely parallel with the path.  Don't pick the oranges though; I like-um.

Sorrry, Russ. There's too much going on on the other bank side of the path.
Simplify, simplify, simplify. And then make it huge.

You're right Eric. Here's the final product -- cropped.

Now THAT is some excellent commentary there. It's much more clearly a direct reference to Rhine II, and a refutation of it.

That sounds all art-world bulls*tty, but I think it's actually a pretty reasonable way to look at it. Just because it's not in words doesn't mean it can't be pretty direct about peeing in someone else's corn flakes.

Better peeing in those cereals that snap, crackle and pop; cornflakes have no drama. Even with semi-skimmed milk. I know: I test them every morning!

I thought the actual terminological usage of this type of phraseology was when trying to disuade someone from doing somthing stupid - I don't wish to p*ss on your chips (that's French fries for our American friends), or fart on your cornflakes, but...!

Had to remove the following, as it was putting me off my cornflakes..  Thanks Rob  :-[

I must say I was shocked   ::)

Another even less salubrious quote I once heard said to a young lady shop assistant who was not being very helpful to a gentleman customer of some advancing years, as he turned to walk out of the shop in digust - I wouldn't deal with her young'un, she wouldn't even p*ss in your mouth if your teeth were on fire...

I must say I was shocked   ::)



There are photographers who sell books etc. shooting exactly that, if without the fire.

Sick world indeed.
