    this. isnt. artwork. it just looks like you spilled paint on a picture and called it art. my 1 year old cousin can do that.

    • Good god woman…open your fucking mind and let go of your preconceptions of art. There is a reason why Gerhard Richter is a modern master.

  2. @ amanda blossom – This. Is. Art. Looks wholly deliberate to me. The calculated colour and shape in the paint echoes items missing from the photograph.
