from The Museum of Bad Art

There was a short stage when I liked "Bad Art" for its kitsch value and to make me feel better about myself and then I realised I was just being another pseudo-intellectual wanker.
I actually don't think this piece is too bad if one disregards proportions,taste etc but I happen to appreciate the value of a good, large breast (for the welfare of Die kinder) and (a good Bottom for its own aesthetic)) not for my own selfish reasons-perhaps I wasn't fed enough from the goddesses' fleshy mounds' which is possibly part of what has made me the politically correct Fucktard I can be on rare occasions.

Fucktard (Noun, Portmanteau) Offensive Slang.
1. Used as a disparaging term for a mentally retarded person.
2. A person considered to be foolish or socially inept.

These days, I feel calling SOME work "Bad Art" just allows the petite bourgeoisie and the "old public schoolboy network" also known as the "art establishment" to keep the status quo and to keep the unwashed masses and the working class In their place along with the uneducated and underprivileged, and gives the arbiters of 'good taste', artistic fashion and most importantly, creators of the 'artistic movements', yet another unwarranted opportunity the wear their Polo necks of smugness.
Similarly, I find the epithet "Outsider Art" derogatory and serves to negate the work within this 'category' with ANY gravitas or real artistic value and keep it, ironically, on the outside of the serious 'art world/market'. There IS a place for PROPER outsider work but that's another rant and speaking of rants, I shall end mine here as I have a tendency to prattle on, often tangentially as you can see. Hatter.
