“Being thin goes something like this: Thin is in – again – in the yo yo world of men’s suiting. Ever since Chanel uber-designer Karl Lagerfeld lost weight just in order to wear a Dior Homme suit, men’s suiting silhouettes have been getting about as narrow as an airline’s profit margins. And Warhol is in this one as such Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche is also interpreting the suiting in a Warhol “factory” way, worn with wool zip-up sweaters and black velvet drainpipes, and accessorized with black sunglasses and layered shag hair. Get thinner, please! Only this time let it be the art!! Manhattan has had more than its share of Warhol gallery shows recently, mostly of late work, and some of them looked thin. The art I say… one never knows what will be found when searching about Andy’s obsessions:Information technology implies a transformation of artistic languages and leads to the “anorexia of art”, a growing movement away from the object towards the concept. Thanks to computers we can now produce images, signs, forms and creative processes that have no need of a physical location but rely on the directions and dynamics of the Internet. The result is “anorexic art”, which strikes not only the eye but also the brain of the spectator. I guess concepts are not good?
