It's not art. It's scam art. Coming up with the explanation of what the painting represents takes more time than the actual painting. It's ludicrous. They are not painters, they are creative writers.

Rich people who buy it, and the people who go to museums to look at it, and claim to "get it", do so because they want to feel that that there is actually something that makes them smarter or more sophisticated than the average bum on the street.

DamnYankees: It's art. a grotesque and empty display of vanity by someone  attempting to attain Social Proof to show off their wealth and status in comparison to others because they're an empty vessel of humanity.

billybobtoo: Reinhart makes paintings and conceptual artworks. By emphasising aesthetics, Reinhart creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

His paintings sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. By applying abstraction, he makes work that generates diverse meanings. Associations and meanings collide. Space becomes time and language becomes image.

His works doesn't reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, he seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.

His works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function.

That's some world class bullshiat, right there. I can see the paradigm that it is being set here and am tracking the modal shift that is coming. Also, siloing.

/yeah, I speak fair corporatese. Not fluent, but can still baffle on demand.

To witness this painting is to submit one's self to a spiritual experience, which, through its transcendence of subject matter, approximates that of consciousness itself. It forces one to approach the limits of experience and awakens one to the awareness of one's own existence.

DamnYankees: It's art. No one's making you look at it or pay money for it. Why does this bother anyone?

Because I could have done it and been a cool $44Mil richer now.
