Modern art: different day, same old guff…

“…the Dorchester, Mass., artist has made a life-size white suit of vinyl with a fishing-pole holder in front; a gigantic, pink fly-fishing creel; and a cabinet filled with fantastical flies made from human hair. What this says about masculinity is open to interpretation.” – from a review of the Manhood: Masculinity, Male Identity and Culture exhibition at Vermont’s Helen Day Art Center

Give me Theodore Lane’s The Gouty Angler any day, dating back to a time when the word ‘artist’ pre-supposed an ability to draw.
