Today I asked myself what is in fashion as a far as painting is concerned. The answer seems to be a jellybean mixture of "Where's Waldo", No focus, style, mood or thought provocation allowed...just a jumble of colours and shapes, the more the better. It seems people all want to be detectives, trying to find the hidden in the mish-mash...except that often nothing is hidden, just like the proverbial jar of jellybeans it is but a guessing game with no resolution. We seem to be a betting society besides loving detective mysteries, nothing too profound, meaningful or somber please...just a bit of fun. This is what I've noticed predominates in the art world at the moment...
