Diaper Babies Gone Wild

2008 December 6
by JoDavid

 

 

• Lovingly rendered in bold paint strokes, this Free Spirited romp in the wild by a young Adam and Eve provokes many questions…

• Is that what a bunny really looks like to you?

• Will that girl face her demise in the swift river’s current?

• When does a rainbow have only two colors?

• Where are your parents and where are your pants?

This is one of the Museum’s recent finds without pedigree.

Much like these children, unceremoniously dropped off by someone for a neighborhood garage sale, this homeless unsigned castaway has found a warm home for the winter. Please come and welcome it to the Museum.

 

It’s whopping size of 51″x27″ underlines the artist’s commitment to telling his/her story of the Diaper Babies Gone Wild.

Upon closer inspection, it looks as though the artist has cleverly signed the piece hidden in the forground as grass shadows. How clever! Who would have ever thought of that. It looks like ‘something O’Dell’, see it?

We respectfully request your opinion, who better than you to be the judge and critic. Educate us! Please comment on this masterpiece below to tell us what you think could be going on here in this major new acquisition of the Museum…

• Another new aquisition to the museum this month. A truly important piece. Completely dreadful!

• An unsigned wonder, so power-packed with angst and oppression as to beg the question…?

Life frankly and brutally portrayed. Look carefully at the menacing shadow suggested in the corner, the symbolism of formal parental dominance, the existential fetal pain and isolation, moving in it’s nature, and so common in it’s truth.  Feel it?  Who among us has not?  Tiny Face, Silent Scream!  Right?

This powerful new aquisition is on loan from the collection of James Crespinel, and as an untitled and unsigned piece, was aptly nicknamed “Francis Bacon Jr.” by art expert, author, and owner of Roq La Rue Gallery, Kirsten Anderson. 


 

 

Oh my God, each time I look at it, the face is more contorted than before, turning, changing, morphing, becoming each of us.

I hear moaning from that corner of the room at night.

I woke up asleep again today.

Help me understand all this with your comments below.

Please visit this outpatient at the Museum for full effect.

And because our main mission here at Official Bad Art Museum of Art is the visual arts education of the masses, here’s an info link to the famous English figure painter Francis Bacon.
