Kieran Forster (aka Algernon Eldritch)

I’m not talking about that first year linguistics theory that I bet doesn’t mean much to most. Naming paintings always tends to orient the viewer for better or worse. It’s a “for the worst” scenario when the name distracts the viewer from experiencing the painting and instead creates another walk down a pathway of allegedly critical thinking. That is, another step into the quicksand of analytical thought, or the characteristically judgemental, Left-brained reduction of art into theory. Since Structuralism is a linguistic theory, I probably shouldn’t have named these paintings that. Let’s just say it was…ironic. Yep. That’s it.
