Anti-painterly painting was stress relieving when it was guerilla art, now it's like painting the death of sincerity.
Paradox of "Death and the Maiden" mirroring "Nonobject versus object in postmodernism".
Crazy rooms and cute monsters are stress relieving but a little gratuitous and decorative. Many of the artists work in a representational mode.
Lots of pictures have a sense of nostalgia for the past. Conceptual art has become like this impenetrable fog we can't navigate.
