Invisible Concepts

2013

A comical engagement with the esoteric nature of conceptual art. Do you have to read the artist statement and have a thorough grasp of critical theory in order to understand and appreciate so much of contemporary art today?

The creation of these watercolors involve absurd circumstances: replacing the paint-mixing water with the depicted soda product, painting my shower while taking a shower. How do these extra bits of information help your understanding or appreciation? Do you even care?
