George Clinton’s Art

Are the paintings created by musician George Clinton especially weird, or just arty weird? They're probably no weirder than the man himself. But only you can decide, by visiting his gallery.

John--noted, But is such a sketchy artwork really going to trigger such a reaction in general?

Wentharal--as a painter, GC is a fine musician.

It's bizarre which makes it interesting. Art is really all about one's perceptions. Heck, I've seen things that are basically paint splatter, but people pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for it.

DC--a defensible standard for judging!

Naw! This ain't art, it's just A.R.T. as the price is only a bit above $1,100. Call me when it gets over 100k$.

Big Gary--I agree. We need more diapers and spaceships in these montages.

Expat47--every home can afford its own GC original!

Pablo--you have unriddled the secret of GC's art!

Can someone tell me if that's a clitoris or a penis on the green, hole-chested (wo)man? Or a clitorenis?

Pablo--I expect to read your art criticism in the pages of THE NEW YORK TIMES any day now! 😊

Fuzzfoot--you mean he's not motivated by the same impulses that motivate Tony Bennett to paint!?!

All silliness aside, that's a very valid point....
