Is  it “Wow” or “Yuck”


(About Kitsch in Art)

post  no.2


What about Contemporary Art?


The Post-Modernism of  which  heyday was in the 1980s, reinforced
the tendency of mixing “high” and “low” art and of challenging the
elitist attitude of the artistic establishment.

Jeff Koons, Puppy,(1992).

Guggenheim Bilbao museum. 


The subversive and ironic  approach of the Post-Modernists, against modern images, caused the artists to use kitschy images as bad and  negative examples of the culture of the past. Again, Kitsch was taken out of its context, but  was given a different meaning from that of the Pop-Art.

Still – in one way or another – Kitsch  was present in museums…

Talking of Kitsch - 
I cannot  ignore my kitschy and cute butterflies!


Butterfly is a  beautiful  animal .
So beautiful that any photo of it seems “gaudy as a butterfly”,and is suspected as a manipulated Kitsch.
Here are butterfly photos, taken in the Alps during the Tour de-Mont Blanc.
(I am an experienced trekker for the last 26 years…)





The cliché  meaning of the butterfly is – Freedom.
But for me it is the symbol of the uniqueness of life.
Life is beautiful  and colorful as a butterfly
But is  short as its’ life...
We must enjoy it!
Make the best of this wonderful gift!

Here are my butterfy jewels:
