“If life moved at a steady speed and constant direction, then art would not survive. We need only lead the beast with the proper trajectory to take it down. But life lives, and we must choose to take it or to tame it. Art is us run-through-the-world and the world-run-through-us.”
The first two to “Like” The Blue Collar/White Collar FB page and respond correctly here to the following questions will receive the “Town Destroyer” Limited Edition (300) 3-color Screen Print from artist Sterling Hundley.
“Town Destroyer” is the first in a series of pieces created to reflect “History never told” from the point of view of those that were conquered, not the victors that wrote the history.
1. Who is depicted in the “Town Destroyer” print?
2. Which people referred to this leader as “Town Destroyer”?
3. What is their native word for “Town Destroyer”?
“Illustration is Blue Collar – both pervasive and accessible. It is art that must survive in spite of commerce and function. There is a desperation to the thing; illustration that doesn’t work doesn’t eat. Given limitations in time to communicate and the space in which to do it, illustration must answer a question.
Fine Art is White Collar – reclusive with airs of mystery and sophistication. It is pursued. Given the abundance of space in which it is viewed and the time which it is afforded, fine art has the luxury of asking a question.”
