Cognitive-Contextual Art - J.Wolfgang Fry

August 1976, Jan Świdziński wrote the 12 Points of Contextual Art.

I am not fully agreeing with the Point 12

“Art as contextual art is opposed to multi-meaning and also to relativism. One and only one expression is true in the given pragmatic context. Such expression is expressed with assertion.”- Jan Swidzinski


Perhaps that because I like ambiguity, or think close enough is good enough. Or maybe its because I see multi-meaning in everything (please see Either Nihlism Exists or Every thing has meaning)and/or what not…however seeing that I am claiming a distinction between Cognitive-Contextual Art and Contextual Art I (and Jan Swidzinski) should be well in the clear (Always Claim your work as a new Movement). Also please reference this to the Upcoming work that will be in the Alliance for the Arts Diametrically Opposed Exhibit as It will be a Cognitive-Contextual Piece, in which I attempt to  create a specific Mindset of both thought and Emotion.

Again these are possiblities that I decided not to go with.

Starting to Creep Myself Out-

This is another one representing the Joker’s effects on Society

It also is representational of Japanese Manga, and How Manga has big eyes. Also it creeped me out.

You’re Dumb (July 8th 2014)-

I think the piece is entitled that towards the piece itself but I liked it enough to save and now post. I’m hostile sometimes, towards myself, others, and my own work, as well as abstract ideas, things and people I dislike, and sometimes just in general.

Woot Woot
