Four-year-old Aelita Andre’s splattery paintings are heralded as the work of a Master…but honestly, I don’t see it. I’m no art major, but it looks to me like someone simply threw paint onto a canvas. Which she did, like any other child can. Her parents are artists, so I can imagine them thinking that everything she does is pure genius…
Anyway, this article is so incredibly pretentious that it’s worth reading. Here’s my favorite bit:
As you would expect from someone with such an impressive biography, Aelita’s art has a raw power that leaves viewers with a majestic impression of pure talent unearthed. Magnificently unrestrained, she channels a curiosity and vivacity so strong that it can easily be felt through her paintings, almost as if it constitutes a tangible force in the world.
So what do you think makes her splatterings so “masterful”? Am I blind to the MAJESTIC IMPRESSION OF PURE TALENT UNEARTHED??
