CMSA; i've noticed a couple new tv shows where the art director is asked to make the set look like the "near future"...the strange thing is i've seen this a few times now with different art directors and the concept is the same; the walls of the set are dressed with abstract paintings...the assumption is abstract is the kind of art will we value in the near future? oddly i would guess exactly the opposite, as our world is defined more and more by technology, we will value more and more the handmade figurative work that depicts some aspect of the human condition; real "intelligence" , , not ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) IS WHAT WE WILL chance would have it, i know a figurative artist who fits that's a sample of her work, after 40 years, maybe this is finally her/my time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
