    Things You See At The Top: Feminist Woman Calls Pile Of Crap "Artwork", Successfully Sells It For $225K

    "Artist Portia Munson is known for chaotic looking pieces of "art" which often times features thousands of pieces of ephemera per piece. Ephemera comes from the Latin word for "things you can find at a yard sale or tucked away in your grandparents garage".Case in point is her work "The Garden", which she made in 1996 and contains more than 1500 separate objects from plastic flowers to stuffed animals, according to Bloomberg. She calls the piece a "meditation on feminism and climate change".



    As you can see from the photo, the piece looks more like something you'd see on a Beatles album cover or inside of Cheech and Chong's Volkswagen bus.
    Wendy Olsoff, owner of New York Gallery P.P.O.W., thought it may be a good idea to feature the art at the Meridians section of Art Basel Miami Beach in hopes that she could sell it.
    Olsoff said: “We thought it would be fantastic. It talks a lot about the environment, which is obviously in dire straits in Florida, and it also taps into feminism and other topics that we always explore in our program.”


    But lo and behold, the piece was only on display for six minutes before Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, the husband and wife founders of the 21c Museum Hotel, took interest in it. It was a match made in liberal heaven. Wilson, standing in the piece, seemed to fit right in with it:
    They settled at a price under the $225,000 asking price - a small price to pay for a new safe zone where Steve can also meditate on feminism and climate change . . . "

    "A fool and his money...you know the rest. About every 6 months I think we're at peak stupidity and I am always wrong. "
    "I created a meditation on feminism this morning as well , if I knew they sold for so much I wouldn't have flushed it."

    It isn't the first time a women put together a bunch of shit and sold it! They're still selling marriage aren't they? I rest my case!

    Don't try to comprehend the insanity, you could hurt your brain!

    Ever notice how artwork for and by women features frames within frames, borders within borders? Always yearning for a safe space.

    I see it as clutter that needs the nearest dumpster! Look what they do to a bathroom! Everything on every flat surface is an avalanche of feminine makeup and hygiene waiting to be triggered! Sweep all that shit in a trash barrel and it throw out with its originator! Otherwise you'll have worthless trinkets, clutter, and mementos piled up everywhere!

    That looks like a Jo-Ann's Fabric store looted by vikings. Call me a traditionalist, but art takes skill and talent, not interpretation.

    Oh wait, I am cis-gendered white male, I am not allowed to have an opinion....

    If people live Steve had no more money left we would probably live in a better world.

    Talking about art, its either a masterpiece that doesnt need any explanation or its mental masturbation...you dont need the creator to inform you what Michelangelo's David stands for.

    For every one woman who successfully sells a piece of shit like that, thousands more will read articles like this and decide to go to expensive art schools, take on six figure loans, and go on to work as waitresses and baristas for the rest of their lives. Personally, I think it's great. Clearly, most young women today want to die alone in abject poverty. It's the only rational explanation for the choices they are making.

    Here's some soothing art made by men with vision and imagination. Which one would draw you near at an art exhibition? Clutter garbage with little thought or imagination, or the most exciting and out-of-this-world things created by men, our hands, our visions, and our imaginations? I can think of better things to splurge 1/4 million dollar$ on!
