Having studied art history in school and now working at a gallery, you would think that I would have a pretty good handle on using language to describe art.
However, International Art English takes descriptive language to the next level.
It is equally self-indulgent, elitist, and nonsensical, but so is the art world at times.
Lucky for us, PIXMAVEN, a web-based art gallery, has generously provided us with an Art Critique Phrase Generator for those days when we are feeling particularly inarticulate.
It’s difficult to enter into this work because of how the aura of the spatial relationships threatens to penetrate the inherent overspecificity.
Toss out your thesaurus!
