Art fails

Discussion in 'photography, graphics & art' started by Gromit, Mar 9, 2017.

    A statue of a young girl with a determined expression has been installed in front of the famous charging bull in New York's financial district.
    The work, by artist Kristen Visbal, aims to highlight the need for more women in positions of leadership.

    Why is this a fail? In the rock, paper, scissors of life little girls do not stop bulls. Paper covers rock. Bull stomps girl.

    Artist has emphasised that women are powerless against the all powerful masculine system. Determined expression is the girl's nativity that is soon to be painfully destroyed.

    It's a bit trite and comic-book.....

    Now that's an interesting angle.

    And the tank one is, too......

    It depends how quickly the barrel can lift.

    Because you need that tossing effect you get from a bull's head or else you can't do the gymnastic bit......

    That looks painful. Sharp rock up the buttocks causing pain so bad you dislocate your shoulder trying to escape it.

    I don't think thats a rock... more a massive and probably fatal prolapse.

    In Fight Club one of the assignments was "to destroy a work of public art." I nominate the above from the Century Link Center in Omaha.

    A work of 'corporate art' I think was specified. Operation latte thunder from memory.

    You're right. I think it was paid for by the folks who brought us Ameritrade. It qualifies.

    LOL! Did I forget to post a picture of the mime and juggler (and his little dog too)? :D

    I apologize. You don't get the true hideousness of it without the mime.

    they look like those crappy living statues you see in places like Las Ramblas and Covent Garden

    I don't mind that one. It's a bit bland, but aesthetically inoffensive. Like the art in ikea.
