Bob Dylan’s Possible Responses to Holland Cotter’s Review of ‘The Asia Series’

bob dylan1 Bob Dylans Possible Responses to Holland Cotters Review of The Asia Series

"Don't look at me."

Holland Cotter, from The New York Times, October 13: “Artists copying without acknowledgment is, of course, an old story. The problem with ‘The Asia Series,’ though, is that not even whispers of potential ethical impropriety can make these paintings interesting to look at, which — unless there’s some Duchampian gesture afoot here — is what Mr. Dylan presumably means them to be. The color is muddy, the brushwork scratchily dutiful, the images static and postcard-ish. The work is dead on the wall.”

[Bob Dylan, growing flustered, looks to his lyrical arsenal as he yells at his newspaper]:

-“To me death is quite romantic, buster.”

-“No reason to get excited. There are many here among us who feel my art career is but a Duchampian joke.”

-“It’s alright Holland (the colors on my canvases are only bleeding).”

-“They’re selling postcards of my paintings. Postcards! Do they sell postcards of your articles?”

On second thought, no. There’s really no recovering from a swift takedown in four sentences. Ouch.

    He had had his say and day. I like his poetry but a painter he is not. That’s the trouble with celebrity it distorts your sense of reality. He really, really can’t paint and is no artist. But he thinks selling and making money makes him an artist-not just a commodity.

  2. Bob Dylan is a jack of all trades. Yes even his poetry rocks.
