Art & Politics

January 27th, 2007

Leslie Holt has broken a sort of taboo over at Art & Perception with her political artwork — reinterpretations of works by old masters. Art & Perception had become something of a “soft art” site lately. If art is to be relevant today, it has to take on the tough issues. Leslie says she has more in the same vein. I’m very curious to see the rest . . .

    I’m a painter that focuses my work around activism, but I’m a loner when it comes to my work, so I stay in my bubble. Work like Leslie’s is interesting to me because it’s such a different approach. Obviously I need to come out of my shell more often.
