In liquid heat TVC hit the street and made their way to the Art Array. We are pleased to report there is much good to be found here (of which more in a forthcoming post) but there is also a selection of work that can be kindly called comic (except by Queensland taxpayers). A sample below:
The above work, signed by Ian Di-Jirus, c/- ‘The Lucky Country’, invites the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China to enter into a Treaty. But before treaties, first we have to have a war…
One recalls Peter Garrett‘s comment: “[much] contemporary visual art…[is] freighted up with cultural commentary and insider allusions…”
Or to (pardon) quote ourselves: “this material sits astride the walls like riders in a posse we have come to call the Post Eternal Phase (forgotten as soon as one turns away)…If Leonardo came back, he’d likely be useless because the formal rigour of training would not be available to him, and he’d miss most of his art classes to attend rallies in town…”
