High camp

The portrait of Jackie sold at the Edgar Owen online gallery. It had been priced at $2,500. I think it's great -- but tasteful? Hmmm. I hope you can see the head of JFK in the clouds just above Jackie. Along the same lines is this kitsch plaque. It's an old tourist item that for me, anyway, transcends the form.


  1. You know that phrase "staggers the imagination?" Not the imaginations of these artists.

  2. Yes, fanciful is probably too tame a word for these kinds of works. They are out there.
