lets face it if its not just marketing and its truley a philosophy, artists would refuse to sell thier work to people with different beliefs from thier own.
The meaning of postmodern in visual art is the recognition that what I put out there will be interpreted by the viewer from their own experience. That will probably not be quite what I meant; So I can decide to say nothing, mean nothing, just make what appeals to me at that moment or I can have an intention when I am making, I will try to get that across to some viewers but they are not wrong when they see something else.

Really. Look at how many posts I have and Glenn still doesn't understand my thoughts.

Notice the difference. Paulmoro says that the viewers are not wrong when they see something else other than what he is trying to get across in his art.
In my mind, a more balanced approach than calling people's comments "ignorant, intolerant, or stupid" if for instance they see a toaster or a pacman in some non-representational carving.

But jOe, it isn't that I don't understand your thoughts, or at least the ones you express. Rather, I make an effort to have you to explain the ones that to me don't work so well when probed deeper, in the hopes that you might reconsider.

Glenn, you took that wrong. I was poking fun at myself, note the smiley. But I can see how what I wrote could be misconstrued. Oh, well, it proves my point. Another wasted post. I failed yet again.(get it this time?

In order for humor to be effective, it should have some basis of truth behind it. So, although I knew your post was lighthearted humor, I used the occasion to address the "truth" behind it.

For the full humor experience, you may have added the puzzled face icon along with the smiley face. Then, perhaps finished with the Moe bonking Curly's head face.
