Things Republicans Hate. No. 25 Abstract Art
Republicans have a very limited knowledge of modern art. They are aware of a few major works including “That one with the screaming guy”, “The
one with the old people holding pitchforks” and “Soup cans”. Republicans usually enjoy paintings of landscapes (Thomas Kinkade) and some
sculptures (The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, The Statue of Liberty). Conservatives are not capable of appreciating Abstract Art. The
works of Jackson Pollock and Piet Mondrian will draw the remarks “I could do that. They should pay me a million dollars!” or “My kid could do
that, she’s four.” almost 97% of the time. People on the right are fond of people telling them exactly what to think, feel and see (a need that
abstract artists do not fulfill). Occasionally, a Republican will enter an art museum (usually as a field trip chaperon). These experiences are
usually uncomfortable and confusing for Conservatives. This is caused by the overwhelming liberal population at exhibits and the inability to afford
anything in the gift shop. Creators of these “masterpieces” are usually drug-addicts, homosexuals, Europeans and Satanists. Their ‘abilities’
are fueled by hatred for America, Jesus and their fathers. National funding for the arts is primarily through people who do not celebrate
and this to while im at it...
" Our reactions to abstraction and or representation also affect how we interpret any work of art. Many people accept Sheeler's artwork even when the
abstraction is more pronounced, because the subject is still recongnizable. However, other people react adversely to simple, non objective shapes like
those in Albers's paintings. Unfortunately, viewers who value representational artwork because they can easily interpret the subject matter often fail
to see the intellectual metaphor and visual effects of the shape relationships; they don't appreciate how form itself may be the subject matter."
