Bush, The Post-Modern

So, who would have thought that George Dubya would turn his thinking into Painting? I confess to admit it, but he is not without talent. Yes, done from photos, sure,... and yet, there is a personality in these things which is one of the main ingredients that make or brake an artist in my opinion. Its the force of one's originality which can bring life to an image. And, yes, there is something in these portraits as quirky and homegrown as they seem. That he cynically wreaked havoc on the Middle East, adding American blood to the already violent fields of Irak, it makes all this seem just a tad post-modern. (Love the Putin!)
