This is what I do while listening to art lectures :D
The time is finally here everyone. Art historians worst nightmare is apone us….The question is, what time period of art are we in now. We all know the reinassance era all the way to pop art but what do we call the now. When all art just seems to be appropriated. Now art. Appropriation is an artist best friend or down fall, it’s when you take someone else’s art or style and make it your own. This seems to be the trouble we as artist all face. Even if we do something we feel is original there is no doubt someone has already tried it. So artist. This is the time, what are we? Are we original or just appropriations?
^a very good article on art appropriation, the picture comes from this article

Marcus Howell, a teacher at MSU, is a phenomenal artist! His style is a quick reminder of something straight out of a game like bioshock. Where evil fantasy meets real life. This particular picture is titled “cocaine napalm beach party”. To me this is a retelling of the sleepy hallows if the headless horsemen was a cheap old partier! It’s a very poetic drawing and painting, and everyone that is interested in the scarier side of this work should look into Marcus Howell’s prints.
Just walking the dog!
Claire Morgan, a crow falling through a field of strawberries. This is a wonderful installation piece! Installation is a more modern art form that start to come about in the late 80s. The point of an installation is for the composition to interact with a viewer within its proper location. Though many installations art meant to be touched they are meant to be respected at 360 degrees. Installation art is by far one of my favorite art forms and hope to see many artist trying it out more.
