mimesis imitate imitation

All theories of mimesis and imitation always are messily copied

A neomodernist chameleon is to hypermodernism what sloth is to laziness, the exception to the rule.

The importance of using humor in making artworks goes far beyond looking funny. After all, if a drawing idea is that easily copied, maybe it was not such a good drawing idea. Funny chameleons illustrate that the reality does not measure up to this ideal.

Mimetic chameleons trying to convince skeptics that they are wrong. If contemporary drawings are fundamentally a technical discipline looking like a radical choice, then chameleons are the living metaphors. Chameleon adjusts themselves to fit into whatever happens to be artsy at the moment.
