People say an awful lot of smart-sounding stuff about art.
And I'll admit that quite often, the smartest-sounding stuff makes me want to just scratch my head and say, "Huh?"
That's why I was absolutely delighted the day I stumbled across PIXMAVEN,
a handy-dandy tool that can make even the least sophisticated among us sound like true art professionals.
One merely types in any five digit number, and the phrase generator spits out a "pithy commentary or savvy insight"... capable of... "confounding friends and colleagues"... and..."dumbfounding professors and artists emeriti."
From a previous zip code, I got this:
"Although I am not a painter, I think that the subaqueous qualities of the figurative-narrative line-space matrix contextualize the inherent overspecificity."
How many times have I wished I said that?
Probably time to redo the old artist's statement.
