subtitled this picture “An



Internet Safari”. Certainly the text Joyce supplies on page 176 is more



‘inspiring’ in its minute details so that this picture contains as many small



details as any previous picture but also larger details and in patches such as



images of old used shirts, and a complex right-hand-side of various pages from



the past history of art and particularly Cubism and Velázquez. Cubism might



seem to many to still be the Modernist ‘style’ of all Modernist ‘styles’ due in



part to its ‘experimental’ operations on the visible world and abstractions



from it, yet they remain painted stuff and reveal the “aura” of something



“painted” and as having that domination of academic metalanguage that smells of



platitudes that may be understood according to a guidebook (and all of those



Modernist Art Historians who proudly provide such guidebooks, or more often



than not Fail to provide such guidance or guidelines through pure ignorance



these days in university teaching in the visual arts). An Internet Safari



clearly relates to the evidence of imagery in most of my works that lifts



imagery from the www. The www is sufficient, up to a point, to provide at least



some of the imagery for these works on Joyce and Duchamp because it’s not difficult



to see where art and knowledge are going.
