| Used Band-Aid In
Space, Power Artist's radiation creation and testament to the frailty
of the human condition and the temporal nature of being, impels the 1990's
"Big Apple" art dealers to exhibit 'day of judgement' desperation in their
vain attempts to comprehend what it has to do with Schnabel (who,
as you may not know, has power to transcend the physical plane), Van Gogh
"Everything!" So exclaims Q. Pennyton Winthrop, resident art critic at Snail Pace Gallery, who, disguised as Sam Van Dyke, visiting art critic at Daniel Boone Gallery, plots the rescue of Used Band-Aid In Space from the unclean art malefactors and their defiled wasteland of crushed cans, crime, and coconuts.
We can ask what African brewery research, the pasteurization of mango-based economics, our decayed societal undercurrents, and a rest stop in Jersey have to do with the unfathomable artwork of the century. Nothing! Or so it seems on the surface. Yet, we must search deeper for reasons to hope for enlightenment. Otherwise, there is only Art In Shambles.
