The Complacency of Looking

What I wrote about "Pattern 2" also applies here, though on this occasion there was an additional touch of creativity in bothering to come up with a deeply meaningful title that gave a touch of semiotics to the piece as well. This latter is terribly important if one wishes to be taken seriously by academic art critics and students required to write essays in the middle years of high school; such people require "genres", "schools" and "movements" to which they can refer, so that the piece can be fitted into an aspect of the history of Art, and thereby explained contextually - whereas the truth is, we artists generally just like to make shapes and colour them in, like six year olds on rainy Sundays.
