Surviving The Art World During A Crisis: A Crash Course For The Art Entrepreneur

The Overblown Outbreak of the Woo Hoo Floo was designed to disrupt life as we know it. Ch1na and their deeply embedded Western co-conspirators are trying to make sure we can never get back to reality, but will instead submit to their arbitrary and tyrannical diktats. Something’s got to give, and soon.

In the meanwhile, we all try to find ways past the erratic demands of the corrupt elite’s “New Normal.” The art world, always a wildly inconsistent market, also is trying to navigate the pandemic of lies. In April 2021, Entrepreneur.com hazarded a few creative business strategies for survival.  

Like all industries, the pandemic drove people in the art industry amok- however, this resulted in them working together and finding new ways of resurrecting, connecting, redefining, and stretching the commercial reach of art. Some were more ready than others, be it by taking their art platforms online, or by changing target markets/creative offerings.

A lesser known fact is that the creative industry roams, in a kind of “stealth mode,” across a very large market terrain. Art can be found in many places that are considered the wide social domain; this domain includes the very places people frequent- like restaurants, hotels, parks, beaches, retail areas, hospitals, gyms, schools, and work spaces.

Remodernism is not a style of art, it is a form of motivation. We express the universal language of inspired humanity.

We do not imitate what came before. We find in ourselves the same divine essence of love and excitement which has inspired masterpieces throughout history. We are strengthened by drawing on traditions thousands of years old.

We integrate the bold, visionary efforts of the Modern era into a holistic, meaningful expression of contemporary life. Remodernism seeks a humble maturity which heals the fragmentation and contradictions of Modernism, and obliterates the narcissistic lies of Postmodernism.

Remodernism is the return of art as a revelation.

Exposing the Art World’s Critical Race Theory Problem

It seems like it’s in the news every day now. An establishment ploy to divide and distract Americans is finally getting the attention and pushback it deserves in some of the fields where it is occurring.

However, there is a vital area where this toxic plot is still going unchallenged.

The destructive ideology of Critical Race Theory (CRT) has operated like a stealth bomber up until recently. No one realized it was there, until it started dropping its payload of hatred, bitterness, and manipulation on unsuspecting targets across society.

CRT is a top-down effort to persuade us into accepting the cognitive dissonance that behaving like bigots is the solution to bigotry. Of course, what the New Aristocracy of the Well Connected really wants to do isn’t what they claim they are doing. The establishment doesn’t want solutions. They deliberately invent problems where there are none, and make existing problems worse. The point of bigotry is bigotry, as Orwell might have informed us; an officially cultivated and sanctioned policy of intolerance against those who don’t conform. Ultimately, the elites don’t care whether the people are persuaded or not, as long as we obey.

The establishment has played a long game, slowly imposing a totalitarian state on a free people. The two electoral victories of President Donald Trump (one of them currently stolen) shocked globalists into accelerating their timeline. To accomplish the undermining of America’s strength, our would-be ruling class needs their divide-and-conquer propaganda to become the only recognized model of our society. They distribute CRT indoctrination through the institutions they control: academia, the media, Big Tech, and corporate boardrooms. It’s one big PsyOp directed at the American populace.

But the elitist urgency to force race hatred onto goodhearted and proud American citizens has backfired. Even the censorship imposed here in life behind the Silicon Curtain can’t stop the information from spreading. Patriots are confronting schoolboards, shutting off the fake news, and boycotting woke businesses. This is just the beginning.

But an important aspect of our culture is still suffering from unchecked CRT distortions: the arts. Establishment art has been in a crisis of relevance for decades now, so it’s not surprising most people are oblivious to these latest examples of extremist rot. The cultural consequences of this unacknowledged festering could be immense. 

I didn’t have to look far to find examples. Just about every art site I visit in my ongoing research is riddled with leftist ideology. As the art world is a place dominated by virtue signaling and trend following, CRT is hot right now. I could go on and on with all the artists, museums, schools, and foundations hyping CRT. These samples of CRT proselyting come from three of the major art publications operating today.

Each article comes with a preposterous (and self-serving) assertion treated as if it were a factual statement. Simultaneously, there is a contemptuous and condescending attitude towards the abilities of those they claim to be advocating for. It’s what Thomas Sowell describes as the “soft bigotry of low expectations.”

ARTnews: As Atlanta’s Art Scene Evolves, Historic Injustices and Hopes for New Futures Come into Focus

But for all its giving over the years, the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta had a problem with who was getting that funding—until [social justice activist Heather] Infantry took up the cause. After finding that 87 percent of foundation funds had historically gone to white-led organizations, Infantry went public with the news while pointing out that certain rules for eligibility (related to budget and staff size, for example) effectively shut out many small and struggling arts organizations that needed support the most. “When you get down to it, the Community Foundation is an incredibly racist institution when it creates guidelines and criteria that disqualify Black arts organizations that are so prolific and abundant,” said Infantry, whose advocacy efforts helped change things for the better. [emphasis mine]

Assertion: Objective, consistent performance standards are racist! Implied: minorities are poor and disorganized.

Art In America: How Dionne Lee Combines Darkroom Techniques with Wilderness Survival Tactics

Lee began interrogating the racialized histories of the American landscape by means of photography in 2016, while an MFA student at the California College of the Arts… The works bespeak Lee’s interest in exploring the body’s relationship to the land, and in tools that facilitate survival in the wilderness, an ability relevant to both social history and climate change. Motivated by fear of impending ecological disaster, Lee has been learning a number of outdoor skills: how to navigate, make fires, and forage for food. During a lecture at the Rhode Island School of Design last fall, Lee noted, “My ancestors, who were enslaved, had to be survivalists, and I’m attempting to reclaim that heritage.” In response to nearly drowning in a public pool as a child, she made her gelatin silver print A place to drown (2019) by scanning an image of a desolate swimming hole. Lee slowly dragged a found photograph across a digital flatbed, and the resulting image is a distorted view of what seems like a gaping hole, perhaps a portal for escape. Swimming is yet another survival skill that reflects histories of racial oppression. The work brings up questions of access: historically, who had the right to swim? Who had access to water? Who had the privilege to perfect the survival skill of swimming? [emphasis mine]

Assertion: Swimming is racist! Implied: This teacher from Stanford University, who is taking part in an exhibit sponsored by the New York Museum of Modern Art, is marginalized and oppressed. Bonus climate change alarmism in this one! I’m sure college art activist is a fine set of skills to bring to the pending weather apocalypse she anticipates.

ARTFORUM: School Spirit – Jessica Lynne on art and Historically Black Colleges and Universities [HBCUs]

In an era framed by the political fervor of the Movement for Black Lives, “mainstream” (read: white) museums, galleries, cinemas, and other cultural organizations are frantic to reckon with the oppressions that have structured their existences, hiring more Black leadership and curatorial staff, increasing acquisitions of work by Black artists and other artists of color, and investing in infrastructure that supports the education of Black students and scholars. [emphasis mine] But if you were to ask your average art-world denizen to discuss the position of HBCUs in relation to these ongoing structural negotiations, you would most likely be met with blank stares.

Assertion: Scrambling to accommodate affirmative action is racist! (Well, it actually is, but not in the way the author of the article thinks). Implied: Minorities can’t be accomplished artists and scholars in their own right, so they need to be promoted on the basis of skin color.

The CRT sickness is spread by a combination of would-be authoritarians, useful idiots, and fearful followers. It’s an emotional, and ultimately a spiritual, disease.

Critical Race Theory is a product of Postmodernism, the corrupt operating system of elitists around the world. Postmodernism is a clumsy Cultural Marxist power grab disguised with sophistry and misdirection.

In 1999, two English artists, Charles Thomson and Billy Childish, first codified Remodernism, a cultural shift destined to displace the failed tyranny of Postmodernism. They wrote, ” Why do we need a new spirituality in art? Because connecting in a meaningful way is what makes people happy. Being understood and understanding each other makes life enjoyable and worth living.”

CRT is not about this kind of connection; it aims to shame and dominate.

At the time of Remodernism’s founding, Thomson and Childish used the absurdity and excesses of the Conceptual art movement to define their opposition. But even those seemingly silly offerings were political; harbingers of cultural suicide camouflaged as kitschy sculptures, rotting animals, and dirty beds in museums.

When Art Was Just Stupid: Jeff Koons “Michael Jackson and Bubbles”

Now the pretense is gone, and we see art being openly used as a weapon for bullying.

CRT is a set of lies about the essence of the United States, claiming the greatest nation in history was founded by racism in order to enable even more racism. The CRT assault is aimed directly at all those who took the inspiring words of Dr. Martin Luther King to heart: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

CRT betrays Dr. King’s dream, his example, his legacy, and indeed the premise of America, as stated in our national motto: E Pluribus Unum, “Out of many, One.”

We can say this because American is not a race, or an ethnicity, or a class. American is a set of principles, and appreciation for the opportunities those principles provide. That’s why the United States was called a melting pot for so long: despite all of our varied origins and circumstances, America gives a fresh start. We were forming a new civilization together, making many into that new dynamic Unum, the likes of which the world had never seen.

The world didn’t like this.

They attacked us by inserting a kind of disease into what should be the United States. Critical Race Theory is a virus, an infection unleashed by an anti-American globalist cabal to weaken our nation.

There’s a lot of that going around lately.

It’s sad to see CRT being utilized anywhere, but it’s especially galling to see it applied to the arts. Art is one of the things that brings us together, throughout all times, and all cultures. The art world can be as big as all of humankind, if we do it right. That is why it’s worth speaking out against these cynical attempts to use art as a wedge. We can defeat this impulse by making art great again, and using it as an expression of the unity and brotherhood of our better natures. It’s the American way, after all.

Critical Race Theory is incompatible with art, and by extension, with civilization.

DAILY ART FIX: ZEN PAINTING by Sengai Gibon (1750-1837)

Art world links which caught my eye…

Sengai Gibon “How old are you, dear Moon? Thirteen, seven?”

The website is a little wonky, but it highlights the surprisingly modern-looking doodled  parables of Zen monk Sengai Gibon (1750-1837) , accompanied by some baffling/amusing zen koans, such as:



This brush painting by Sengai is about the story of the Chan monk Tianran (739-824), a disciple of Shitou. One frigid cold winter evening Tianran was staying at a temple in Changan. Chattering with cold he took one of the wooden Buddha images from the altar and burned it in the stove to warm his backside. When the temple director saw this he was shocked and exclaimed,
‘How can you do such an onerous thing?’
Tianran replied, ‘I’m collecting sarira [relics from cremated ashes of spiritual masters] from the Buddha image’s ashes’.
‘How stupid to think you can get sarira from a statue!,’ retorted the monk.
‘Then please hand me another, it’s a cold night’, replied Tanxia.

Intense frigid cold winds,
Need fuel for the hearth.
Call this roasting the Buddha?!
Your eyebrows
and beard
will be singed off!

Artist Quotes About America

Reposted from July 3, 2017 

Thornton Dial “Don’t Matter How Raggly The Flag, It Still Got To Tie Us Together”

“If we going to change the world, we got to look at the little man.”

Thornton Dial

.

Happy Independence Day!

In large part, the creative classes are saturated in globalist propaganda. The institutional indoctrination is very thorough, and of course most funding opportunities rely on conforming to the elitist gentry agenda.  Sad!

However, there are examples of artists who spoke their minds about the fantastic nature of the American experience. In the United States our culture is currently experiencing the death throes of manipulative, oppressive Postmodernism. As we enter the new era of Remodernism, the return of art as a revelation, expect to see more artists express the ethos of liberty in deeds, words and pictures.

.

Andy Warhol “Van Heusen (Ronald Reagan)”

“I met someone on the street who said wasn’t it great that we’re going to have a movie star for president, that it was so Pop, and when you think about it like that, it is great, it’s so American.”

-Andy Warhol

.

Thomas Eakins “The Champion Single Sculls”

“Of course, it is well to go abroad and see the works of the old masters, but Americans… must strike out for themselves, and only by doing this will we create a great and distinctly American art.”

-Thomas Eakins

.

Arthur Dove “Me and the Moon”

“What constitutes American painting?… things may be in America, but it’s what is in the artist that counts. What do we call ‘American’ outside of painting? Inventiveness, restlessness, speed, change..”

-Arthur Dove

.

Jacob Lawrence “The Migration Series Panel 58”


“Maybe…humanity to you has been reduced to the sterility of the line, the cube, the circle, and the square; devoid of all feeling, cold and highly esoteric. If this is so, I can well understand why you cannot portray the true America. It is because you have lost all feeling for man.”

-Jacob Lawrence

.

Willem De Kooning “Dark Pond”

“I feel sometimes an American artist must feel, like a baseball player or something – a member of a team writing American history.”

-Willem De Kooning

.

Georgia O’Keeffe “Cow Skull: Red, White and Blue”

“One can not be an American by going about saying that one is an American. It is necessary to feel America, like America, love America and then work.”

-Georgia O’Keeffe

.

Jack Kerouac “Untitled”

“I felt like a million dollars; I was adventuring in the crazy American night.”

-Jack Kerouac

.

Grant Wood “Stone City, Iowa”

“I had to go to France to appreciate Iowa.”

-Grant Wood

.

Richard Bledsoe “The Pop Star”

Remodernism is the latest iteration of the American character: ordinary people working as explorers and inventors, optimistic, self-reliant and productive.”

-Richard Bledsoe

DAILY ART FIX: ‘Every Piece I Carve Is A Message’: Elijah Pierce Aimed To Do God’s Work In Wood

Art world links which caught my eye…

Elijah Pierce A page from The Book of Wood: “Rose of Sharon, Jesus Heals Woman Bleeding, Judas Kiss, Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane,” 1932, paint on carved wood, mounted on wood panels

Wood carvings by barber and Baptist preacher Elijah Pierce (1892-1984) were the subject of a 2020 exhibit at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Pierce was just a kid when somebody gave him a pocket knife. After an uncle taught him to whittle, Elijah picked up bits of wood in the woods, and started to work.

“I’d carve anything that was a picture in my mind,” he once said. “I thought a pocket knife was about the best thing I’d ever seen,” he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch….

Deeply religious, he felt he was God’s instrument as an artist. “Every piece I carve is a message, a sermon,” he said.

Amen.

DAILY ART FIX: New Painting “Wise”

Richard Bledsoe “Wise” acrylic on canvas 16″ x 12″

One of my recently completed paintings. I have been inspired to create a series of invented portraits, letting the painting process reveal characters to me. Once suggested, it becomes my role to realize the vision I was shown.

I no longer work from preparatory drawings or grids. I create the
images by painting them directly out on the canvases. While working
on the paintings, the most effective results happen when I’ve become
so absorbed in the process that I’m aware of nothing else. In fact, it’s
like I’m aware of nothing at all.
