As previously reported in the Accredited Times, we are right now living in the Greater Renaissance. Whereas previous generations were totally ignorant about so many social justice issues, this generation is fully awake, engaged, and progressively radicalised; we are passionate about creating a better world. Arguably, nothing epitomises the magnificence of this age more than modern art.
In past centuries, artists’ imaginations were severely limited; they painted, sculpted, and drew what they saw. In essence, these ‘artistic’ individuals (almost exclusively white European males) performed the function that the camera on most smartphones today provides. Some white male loser with the handle ‘Rembrandt’ (edit: or possibly ‘Vermeer’, not that it matters) painted the below portrait of a womyn he was clearly lusting after.
We do not know how many pixels this ‘Rembrandt’ or ‘Vermeer’ character was working with, but it was clearly not enough. Why not paint a womyn of color, a transgendered person or a lesbian? Rembrandt/Vermeer instead goes for the easy option: a photogenic white heterosexual girl with a pearl earring.
The wider point is that there is nothing remotely challenging, creative, or artistic about this portrait. Today’s sophisticated art enthusiast demands something which is frankly more intellectually nutritious, such as a series of blank canvases as shown below.
What do you see when you look at the above blank canvases? Speaking for myself, I see a world rid of evil white males. You too, huh?!
When we turn to famous sculptures, the name Michelangelo frequently comes to mind. Again, this white male is an example of an overrated individual who contributed precisely nothing to art. Here is arguably his most famous piece, La Pieta:
Contrast Michelangelo’s amateur efforts against the creative geniuses of this age. Below we show the masterpiece which enriches the lives of San Diego citizens on a daily basis. Since various interpretations are possible of what this structure represents, it is clearly far superior to La Pieta which is a travesty that refuses to check its Christian privilege
Finally, we show just how far our modern artists have come. Well over 3000 years ago, some Egyptian artists depicted the Queen Nefertiti as shown on the right. It’s not a bad effort to be fair, but frankly shows little imagination. We are left wondering what this ruler truly felt about LGBTQ+ issues of xer time. Xer eyes give nothing away. The modern gender neutral representation of the same individual, some 3000+ years later show just how much we have advanced. The Queen now has character, a feisty attitude, and a face which cannot hide the deep concern xe has for so many social justice causes. We can only imagine how proud modern Egyptians are of the updated Nefertiti.
