    Move over Toby* cause I got a new art crush in the name of Gordon Holden. Damns.

*Not really Toby, I love you forever, you know that.

    Juergen Teller I’m Horrified 2002


During the 2002 final he asked an assistant to video his every grimace and expletive, as he squirmed on the couch while Germany lost to Brazil. The artwork didn’t make for pretty viewing. “It was terrifying,” says Teller with a hearty laugh. “I was horrified. It took me three months to sit through the whole thing. But watching football is a time when you can be really stupid, and I like that.”

    This last sentence just…cuts to my soul

    Photography, Andreas Gursky has said, is not that important to him anymore. Instead, he was quoted by the Financial Times as saying he was more interested in a “painterly view.” This, coming from the creator of the most expensive photograph ever to be sold at auction (over $4 million), is quite a surprising statement.

    How does this irk me….let me count the ways:

    • He didn’t see a dollar of that $4m b/c there aren’t royalties on art.
    • Like any artist got into art thinking, yep, this is how I’m going to get rich
    • Seriously, I would like to meet that artist who got into it for the money.
    • Heaven forbid he pushes himself because what’s been working has been bringing in the $$.
    • This quote would say “more of the same, which is quite surprising from the creator of the most expensive photograph ever to be sold at auction. He should be financially sound enough to experiment and take risks” if he hadn’t pushed himself
    • God sometimes I hate art criticism.
