March 17th, 2019: Donít Know Much About Art...

You know the rest. But itís true, there is so much stuff out there that someone is calling ďArtĒ, nobody can even know what is or
isnít without a program. When the night janitors at the gallery trash your exhibit itís a pretty good indication not everyone ďgets itĒ.
It doesnít have to be by a starving artist or your mailmanís cousinís neighbor either. Picasso's Guernica, accolades up the ying yang,
valued at $200 million, I donít like it. If you have to explain to me what your painting is, what it represents, you failed.
If you hand me that old, it can be what ever you feel it is, that means you donít know yourself. Tell me itís colors and shapes you liked,
Iíll check it out, I may like it too. Jackson Pollock I respect, he has pulled a scam Bernie Madoff would envy.
OK, just so you know Iím a troglodyte and where Iím coming from.

I saw ďCollins DinerĒ by Ralph Goings and was very impressed, not with the subject matter, but because itís hard to believe itís
an oil painting. Evidently the knowledgeable people agree with me, touting it as the zenith of the Photo-Realism school.



Then I saw this painting by Peter Maier.



I couldnít believe itís a flat Aluminum panel painted with automotive water base paint.
I wondered if "fabricated" panels meant shaped but nope, they're flat.



He was chief designer at GM until 1980 then quit to do art and been very successful at it.



I suppose itís a natural progression from my love of NC Wyethís works which werenít sharply realistic like this, but I knew what
the hell he was showing me and they were exciting subjects.



Marshall McLuhan nailed it, ďArt is anything you can get away with.Ē

Gotta love the spoked sidemount.
I don't think Packards had front suicide doors, so I am not sure what the chrome device is behind the wheel. Seems too low for a mirror.

Hadn't noticed it before, but that looks like a door handle doesn't it?

Painting of a modified Packard I guess.

Yep.
Did some more looking and there do not seem to be other years with those front doors. Better dig out my big Packard book.

Would I lie to you, my oldest and dearest friend... if it didn't involve money or sex?
