Title: [painting contest]Kurt J. Hinterbichler
Post by: Nanny Goat on February 27, 2006, 09:37:47 AM
I got a kick out of Kurt J. Hinterbichler's picture and the long explanation.  

I rarely explain my stuff.  But then with this one, it sort of goes with the whole thing of this contest.  Like the explanation is part of the piece.

Frankly, the picture looks like a dismembered witch to me.

After reading your message I see it too. I guess the picture is like Rorschach Inkblot.

Although the art of Kurt Hinterbichler was voted the worst by the visitors to this website, one Solipsist does like it and fiercely defends it against the unfair criticism in the Absolute Arts Forum (http://christo.absolutearts.com/artsforum/messages/323/87837.html?1154210328). (Note that in that forum the oldest posts are at the bottom of the thread.)

Squarz by Kurt J. Hinterbichler

What can one say about this bold and daring new work by 21st century artist Kurt J. Hinterbichler? At first glance, we see three shapes that seem to outline a sense of urgency and chaos. Yet, upon closer examination, more shapes appear within the outline, reflecting order within the disturbance. Like one's life, the shapes are simple when viewed from the outside in, yet become extraordinarily complex when viewed from inside out. The colors portray this as well, with a lack of quantity made up for by a brilliant use of clarity. The solid white both outside and in shows the inner and outer similarities that everyone shares, while still serving to highlight emptiness and innocence.

First, thank you for this hilarious/therapeutic website and contest!

The only thing that could've made Kurt's submission any "better" is if it were "untitled".  All truly bad art usually is.

And, the commentary/critique reads as well as any made-up story about some goofy art I've ever read. Kudos!

Kurt's art was shown on German TV. You can view the clip here (http://reverent.org/movies/ehrensenf.wmv).
