Regretfully, FB's characterization of American (NORTH American) art is painfully correct. Any culture that finds value in Warhol or Koons is a grossly immature culture. I would call them Los Pinchechistosos.
JLN, I'm always so glad to hear you say that about Warhol, et al. I really just never understood what was supposed to be so clever about soup cans and the whole pop art thang, and I felt like it meant I didn't "get" art.
I was at a nearby museum last week, and saw that they'd put a Warhol on the cover of a pamphlet-- I thought, "Gawd, more of that stuff. I don't get what the fuss is..." and was preparing to kick myself for it once again-- then reminded myself, "JL feels the same! It's not just me! Whew!"
