Hello again @omgsodunn,
I do understand the need for ‘us art blogs’ to post nothing but pretty pictures for people like yourself to look at. However, as I have said in my previous comment to you, this is my blog and although the majority of my posts are just that - ‘pretty pictures’, other posts WILL CONTINUE TO BE about art discourse as it is of MY interest and aids my academic focus and research.
Furthermore, art cannot be anything BUT political. A pretty picture is never just that; an idyllic landscape, is never just that. I have some book recommendations for you or anyone else who wants to read on that further.
With regards to your ‘racists don’t have enough brain cells to appreciate art’ argument: That is simply not the case. There are several historic figures who contributed immensely to the field who were in fact racists. Artists too!
Of course it’s a race issue - and don’t tell me to shut up ever again.
