Voice of Fire

I have an appreciation for modern art. This painting was purchased with Canadian tax money and it was very controversial at the time. It is now valued at over $40,000,000.00. Somehow they figured out that it was actually hung upside down. If a piece of art requires very little classic artistic skill, it seems to take on some social commentary role. One writer says…..
Voice of Fire exemplifies this obscurity with its ambiguous subject matter, that can raise more questions than answers for the spectator, in return can cause terror which adds to the feeling of the sublime. Furthermore, abstract art can carry us beyond the canvas and create a feeling of the sublime as we can only guess or intuit the meaning of these works.
I don’t think I would hang it my garage.November 27, 2019 at 8:24 pm #29403
Its not upside down, its sideways….hahahaha….November 27, 2019 at 9:47 pm #29404

One thing is for sure. There will be no overnight of smash-and-grab theft of THAT piece of shit.
A lot of artists seem to be in the business to see how much bullshit they can get away with. The word “art” used to be roughly equivalent to “skill” or “craft.” I’ll stick with that idea. Compared to a Vermeer, that painting is nothing less than an assault on a perfectly good sheet of canvas.
Do you have a virus on your computer @unseen? You’re the only one getting the strange code with a web site embedded in it.November 28, 2019 at 8:28 pm #29410
Good point. I’ll run a scan.
OK, I did a scan.

I doubt if it is a virus issue. It looks like a text formatting problem. Do you write locally (using Word?) and then paste to the site? Check if the TEXT tab (at the top right of the reply tab) is on or off.

Well, there’s a lot about this one on the web but 90% of it is geek-speak with few clues about exactly what it is or how to get rid of it. But I did see references to Video Downloader Professional, and in at least two cases, people removed it and it fixed their problem, but in another case they didn’t even have that extension, so that’s not what was causing it.
If it’s Video Downloader, it doesn’t look dangerous and may just be a bug in some ad serving software or in Chrome’s processing of it. (Apparently Google removed that extension from their store.)
If it’s not Video Downloader in your case, let me know and I’ll research it further. Meanwhile, my most successful search so far was on the “1e6ab715a3a95d4603” part of the code, but I recommend that if anyone googles it, do NOT click on any links given unless you’re sure they look trustworthy, because it could be like accidentally stepping on an opportunist’s dog shit that was lurking there just for an innocent foot, and actually be more dangerous than the original problem.
