    Art is so subjective anyway that calling someone "derivative" is essentially meaningless unless you can show that they are derivative in a vacuous sense or so derivative of a particular artist as to constitute a "rip off." But of course Harnk or whatever will never come through with the goods because he doesn't actually know anything about "art" and even if he did who the hell cares? Art is as institutional and dogmatic as anything else. What does it even mean to be "derivative" in a field where you can throw a dead shark in a tank of Formaldehyde and literally call it "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living" (with no sense of irony) and be a respected artist? You really think there's some objective standard that you can just summarily judge an artist like Will Cullen Hart as "derivative" based on? What would it be? Some nebulous criteria that Harnk is never actually going to outline but rather rely on his pompousness to make people infer that he's "well informed" even though he probably isn't? And even if he is, being "well informed" in art requires nothing more than 40 thousand dollars of your parents money and the patience to write bullshit critiques for four years on a bunch of paintings that you never would've heard of or cared about if some professor hadn't thrown it up on a power point in front of a bunch of apathetic twenty somethings who are probably too busy texting people and thinking about drugs to appreciate any of the supposed "artistic merit."

    But go ahead, Harnk. Lay it on us. Let's hear your brilliant artistic analysis, because a guy like you who is "smart" enough to think that nobody's ever bought the work of Pollock or Picasso or Magritte or Warhol or Dali or Steadman or Klimpt or Klee or Glorp or Gloo just because of the name it was attached to probably has some real eye-opening shit to say about the work of Will Cullen Hart.
    good work. :shock:

    i find this post unnecessarily negative myself (not un necessary) but that's just me. whats so bad if i want art solely because I'm a fan of the artist's work? I mean, i think its good that people are willing to shell out the cash for him and want to. i feel like having wills art is like having an artifact. the same can be said for his home made cds. i have the silver one and I've listen to it a lot but its not in my top 5 albums played. i solely bought that because will made it. and I'm a HUGE HUGE fan of his work. I would buy anything in the world he was selling, **except for that one time i met him at a show (and got his AUTOGRAPH!!! AHH!) and he really smelled like liquor. I was NOT buying that.
