JOHNSON A.

Aaron Johnson (?). American painter.
Probably someone will ask why I publish only works of art that I love or in some way interest me. It is true, but if someone among you follows this blog with continuity will know that sometimes I let me go to real requisition against cheaters in the art world. There are too many. I must clarify that for the most part they are not the artists (after all they do what they are asked to, a bit like whores you rightly could say), but they are the art dealers. When they become so rich that they can afford to withdraw from business, then they allow themselves to shout alarmed that contemporary art is all a scam. Obviously they are the dupes who play the double game. They were the ones who allowed this to happen, but also the dominant culture comes into play. When cynicism disguised as pragmatism is urged and rewarded, when one shouts loudly that everything is licit (except those socio-political taboos we all know), when any crap can become and artistic work if it is well conveyed and propagandized, then all that remains to do is to adapt. If the shit must be then let's wallow all together. The artist who accompanies this item represents this kind of cheating, but it must be said that he is just an example among the very many others.
