Stop the presses. Artist is an iconoclast

The currently-touring-Canada winner of RBC's Canadian Painting Competiton is Jeremy Hof of Vancouver. He's quoted in an RBC newspaper ad this week as saying, "I believe in challenging traditions in the pursuit of unfamiliar approaches and outcomes for painting."

Wow! How daring! A modern artist who actually believes in challenging traditions!?!? Who would have ever guessed?

What next, Terry? A post complaining about athletes who claim to give 110% and are taking it one game at a time? How about one about bloggers who get outraged about trivial matters? Yeah ... that's the ticket!

Man back in the days Artists weren't such whiney, spoiled,zzzzzzzzz
Pot-smoking, snob, punk-faced, college...
There's a reason that they're called "starving artists", quit make stuff that only 0.0000001% of the population gives a rats-ass about. Get a Job, or sell painting by the docks daddio.
