Jack Balas, 2014: SPUNK & WACK, EMERGING CURATORS (#1173); oil, ink and enamel on gessoed paper, 22" x 30"
(Spunk and Wack are my two Honolulu surfers who have gone off, temporarily, to art school.)
Spunk and Wack sign up for a class in emerging curating at the lo-cal community college, and soon face their first moral dilemma...
(Spunk): "Dude! This class
is nuthin but write write about art that should need no 'xplainin'.
We all want to change the world, yeah, but this is just jerkin
off, only not as much fun."
(Wack): "I got an idea, man, do a painting of me doin' my junk, we'll sell it and send the money to Doctors w/o Borders."
(Spunk): "Dude, your hands-on approach will most certainly be our very own zone of contamination! Plus our ticket to the next Doc-umenta!"
(Cardinal): "These Boys R On To Sum-thin !!!"
Dedicated to my good friend Andre Heller, who has worked for years throughout Africa for Doctors Without Borders. Keep Goin' Man! 12.13.14
