Series: Why is modern art so depressing?

The Banishment of Beauty

Well it deliberately instills hopelessness. 

That’s how you weaken the white man (as well as encouraging him to mix out of existence or fail to protect his female relations from “Asians”).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins#Acedia

Acedia is currently defined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church as spiritual sloth, which would be believing spiritual tasks to be too difficult. In the fourth century, Christian monks believed acedia was not primarily caused by laziness, but by a state of depression that caused spiritual detachment.

Keyword: detachment. The vices of CM media are designed to numb and dull and finally dissect your mental sense of connection to your soul. It’s an occult thing, and a binding to evil entities in its place. How many modern men identify with their vices? Their smoking, drinking, whoredom? How many men identify personally AS their porn addiction? Or defined by their “taste” in porn, which was initially conditioned by disgust? There’s a replacement of identity, like a cult. They are enmeshed with evil. That is the evil choice.

e.g.

James Bond was the beginning of the end of the white man, a worthless degenerate cucking for the bankers funding Government. Ian Fleming happily married. However, Bond is an atheistic, alcoholic, sociopathic, violent, race-mixing, virgin-ruining, narcissistic manwhore. And kids were encouraged to watch this? Instead of having kids and being a man, graduating to actual duty, he spreads disease in every country with the Mary Sue levels of pussy parade in every flimsy excuse for a plot. And that is why Jewish anti-white Hollywood holds him up as “cool” and the ideal for the white man to emulate thoughtlessly. A man with no future but to die, a useful idiot, a pleb for the powerful, a mere tool. He goes where ordered and does as told. He’s like a dog with a gun. The West will be better off when this worthless wretch’s cultural legacy is dead. He is literally the disposable man, complete with/known by number. Have you noticed how cinephiles happen to be total losers? High time preference is death.

Because the return of syphilis is “glamorous”. 

Men really have been massive suckers, falling for this.

Anti-white hedonism is their sales pitch and the dumber men lapped it up. Only to think it’s mere coincidence, years later, when their lives are total shit. The Boomers fell for this initially but some Gen Y and now Z are actively far worse. For all their faux, virtue signalling calls to “end degeneracy”, start in the mirror, Tinder users.

You can’t slag off those Boomers when you’re worse than them.

Bond looks like a gentleman, acts like a whore. He’s clearly bisexual, as spies have to be. Similarly modern art fakes inspiration and everything claims to be art, like all men think they’re gents, when the term does have disqualifiers. All art mediums have suffered from failure to apply exclusionary standards. Men used to have actual heroes in media, military generals, kings, married men with kids, good Christian men every time. You can’t find a Hornblower type of hero now. Individualism self-worship is a Jewish thing, it’s never been white. Men are respected according to in-group value, the antisocial is encouraged in ALL art forms now.

Lefties only steal: Apple from this German

https://readymag.com/shuffle/dieter-rams/intro/

Apple ‘designers’:

Good design is long-lasting

It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years — even in today’s throwaway society.

well they failed there concrete buildings are hideous

they fall apart and nobody wants to live in them

nothing dates more postmodern than grey concrete and white plastic

Apple rips off a peculiar brand of it.

30s German minimalism, if you know your stuff. Braun came after that German efficiency, explored by other white nations too.

Kupka, 1930.

They applied the same idea to the population with mixed results.

Ikea was founded by a Nazi lover, fact.

The irony is hilarious.

Minimalism is a white aesthetic.

 

Conservative art death threats

Left Uses Threats, Violence to Stop Conservative Art

Conservatives often complain how little right-of-center content exists for them to consume. You can’t withdraw from pop culture, they cry. Engage, don’t retreat.

  • Make conservative art
  • Share conservative art
  • Inspire the next generation of conservative artists

That’s understandable, and smart. What happens when these same artists, daring to shake up the Left’s cultural stranglehold, runs into death threats?

When they said “make good art” they meant “art I find morally good, as an evil person”.

You could make a bloodied wax foetus and they’d praise it if you called it Liberty.

Call it Moloch and they’ll SWAT you.

I hate these people

If you need to paint over something, start with colour by numbers.

Don’t take someone else’s art and go instant karma Marxist on it.

No “artist” would actually do that. Artists respect other works. R-type trash.

There’s a metaphor about our modern world in here somewhere.

They “hate” Western civilization but they wanna live here and enjoy the perks.

They won’t do their own thing. Far, far away….

In a similar vein?

The people who chop up antique books need to be burned at the stake, it’s the only way to be sure.

Like no, butchering knowledge in its pure form is not a sculpture, Sandra.

Cultured people hate you now. They want respect but disrespect history and heritage.

Cultures take time to develop and personally, to appreciate. The people who say “everyone is creative” are 10/10 cunts who shouldn’t have been encouraged as children. Trashing good things is expression sure but not art.

Same as those people selling off an antique book page by page.

It feels like the bad restoration people but intentional destruction of the superior culture.

They should be shamed. Brats who grew up with anti-social behaviour praised by bad parents/teachers.

You know those were wall doodlers.

If I flipped you the bird right now, it would certainly be a powerful emotive expression… but it wouldn’t be art.

Abstract artists replaced by AI

Putting the “art” into artificial intelligence.

 I’ll show myself out.

It was only a matter of time.

Now avoiding the real job market by becoming an “artist” isn’t an option, either!

They look like demons that escaped some Lovecraftian hellscape.

Still, better than Glenn Brown.

Like something a mad syphilitic patient would paint in the asylum.

Picasso was a hack who ripped off a lesbian anyway.

Then her symbolism makes sense.

Guess what those flowers represent.

And with ideas like this

Who’ll want to buy their pieces?

The “art market” is only still going as a respectable tax dodge.

And a tool to corrupt.

With every modern advantage

I know this has been pointed out by others, but given every modern advantage, our “artists”, celebrated in the media, are still producing inferior works compared to the average in ancient times.

Behold, amygdala atrophy.

I’m as good with actual art as I am with faces. Without going through everything because that would be harsh, a reproduction does invite comparisons. Gem quality on right superior, shape even and smoother (just worn at top), border is perfect with some gaps, modern border wobbles and varies, While both leg pairs seem muscled, the right is in keeping with the figure and the left on the man would tauten as lifted, a knowledge of anatomy. On the modern, the legs are fat because the left is as big and the upper torso shrunken, the right arm (his right) is shriveled compared to the antique and the left attempts to compensate with fat, almost out of socket from body compared to the antique, where the arm is held close to the body, in joint, in pose to stabilize weight. Left figure seems to have visible spine whereas on the right he has defined muscles including possibly abdominals. The flat hair on the right is fashion but correct for side of head, the left misinterprets this design and there’s no hair almost, the head seems almost to cave in at the back and touch the border. Facial details show the difference the most though. The antique smiles.

With modern microscopes, electronic tools and an example to imitate, this wouldn’t pass muster back then.

Scientism as ugliness

Empty, soulless man-made crap.

Where is the elegance?

The sophistication?

The form that isn’t functional!!!

Globalist culture is no culture.

If you want a scientist on the matter:

“If this does not appeal to you sufficiently to recognize in me a discoverer of principles, do me, at least, the justice of calling me an “inventor of some beautiful pieces of electrical apparatus.” – Nikola Tesla, 1907

Sign of the times

K-times artwork vs. r.

Never trust a teacher.

Despite this being her job, and she volunteered, it’s ruined beyond repair.

Children exist who could’ve done better. And how could a woman get the makeup wrong?

“the art restorer Carmen Usua suggested that it might be impossible to bring the statue back to its original state, due to incorrect sanding, questionable coloring, and dodgy work on the plaster. The culprit now faces a fine from the Spanish association of art conservators and restorers, who plan to bring the issue to the Prosecutor’s Office of Navarra.”

Big fine, it’s cultural heritage.
