Art historians agree that the emergence of a new style in the visual arts--a new ism --is highly unlikely. Artists facing this so-called dead end are looking at the world with a pragmatic eye. One of these areas of reductionism is environmental art. These endeavors are highly contextual and often adopt interpretive brands that compete for market dominance. Escape Artist questions the aims of these opportune artists.
Have artists abandoned the higher calling to create artworks that are valued in their own right Is the new emphasis on social and political issues an abandonment of the intrinsic meaning of art History will show that artists cannot find solutions to these problems artistically.
Symbolic of this plight of the true artist is a Florida alligator that has survived impossible environmental odds for 37 million years. Though a hurricane has deconstructed a billboard s commercial significance, it heads in a new direction hoping not to become another roadkill.
