I won’t dwell on this much longer, but I got interested in the death of Post-modernism after reading Docx’s article, and found another article with a different, rather bleak take on the whole thing which suggests that after post-modernism we are entering a cultural desert ruled by instant messaging and vote-driven reality tv shows. I suspect that the post-post-modernism the author calls “pseudo modernism” will be profoundly short lived, because it is so utterly superficial.
Nature abhors a vacuum, so proper craftsmanship and quality (for us, of course I’m refering to classical technique in painting) can rush into the space and return to it’s proper place in creative culture.
Back to the studio. Time to paint.
