Just Plain Goofy…

The “official portraits” of former President Barack Obama and former First-lady Michelle Obama have been revealed.  The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery unveiled its commissioned portraits on Monday.  Barack Obama image, painted by artist Kehinde Wiley, shows him seated in front of an ivy backdrop, while Michelle Obama was painted by Amy Sherald in a pale blue setting.

Art is subjective.  The portraits are just plain goofy.

Even the furthest-left liberals intrinsically know those portraits are goofy.  That’s what is funny about them.  The loons begin a process of high-brow philosophical discussion about the bold dynamic within the medium, the inherent nuance, invisible overtures, fascinating artistic meaning and deeply elevated intellectual stimulation…

And there it is; amid the subtle head-tilts, high-minded discussion depth and shallow chin-clutched adoration we see a glorious display of a naked emperor convincing a particular mind how his robe is such magnificent splendor.

The portraits are goofy.

Perfect.

    To me, these aren’t portraits, they are caricature art. In both pics, the body proportions are completely off. I know portraits aren’t 100% exact, but, come on. There isn’t anything exact here.
    As to the rest, I’ll leave analysis up to other “art” critics. Suffice it to say, if there is hidden symbolism, I ain’t a’gonna like it, that’s fer dern sure.

    The 4chan guys have pointed out that the “ivy” is photo shopped. Wouldn’t be surprised if the whole portrait was photoshopped by the artist then painted in china.
    Not only does obummer hate white America he hates his mother. To pick this artist known for the horrible paintings of black women beheading white women is racist. He and his wife are racist.

    The young woman who did moochela probably really painted that. She knows moochela thinks her firm arms are her best feature so she played them up. The face looks nothing like her.

    The portraits are filled with hate and they got that part right.

      You’re right. 4chan is all over it. I won’t link to the thread – it is 4chan after all and they’re pretty darn disgusting and over the top in their comments – but they’ve pointed out very well that the entire background of the pResident Obama portrait is basically just a huge litho of photoshopped/cloned background. They even got bored detailing the photoshopping and stopped before they completely finished. Some straight clone photoshopping – some reverse clone photoshopping – mirrored clone – etcetera. Basically, it’s just a big poster of a typical photoshopped internet meme. The alleged “painting” of Barack Hussein himself may even be a photoshop of a photograph made to look like it was produced with brushstrokes…. and that’s a very routine tool/feature of all image manipulating software be it Gimp, Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro, and all others above and beyond Microsoft “Paint” minimal capabilities.

    None of us are authorities on what “art is.”
    That said, clearly the prior portraits were painted in a particular style. The Obamas should have kept with that precedent.
    These particular portraits are more appropriate for his library.

    It’s kind of like the MLK Jr Memorial in DC. I saw it this past fall and it does not look like him!! Face shape is wrong and the lips are massive! And no I am not a racist, I talked to black man on the airplane flight home and he said the same thing…lips are massive. And the sculptor was Chinese! You meant they couldn’t have found an American, even a black American, to sculpt this? At least they would have known what he looks like. I found it sad…I really loved MLK Jr. A great man.

      Obama’s “looks like him” because it’s not even a painting.

      It’s a photograph that’s been run thru a computer and added “paint” to to make it look “kinda like a real painting”.

      In that respect, kudos to Michelle’s artist for at least not using photoshop……even tho she’s obviously not a realistic portrait artist.

    I think 0 gifted us with an accurate summation of his presidency and what it meant to him.

    The arrogance of have gotten away with fundamentally transforming the country and of not being found out for what he is apparently spurred the choice of an “artist” who, charmingly, and in keeping with 0’s favored religion—celebrates beheadings—particularly of white women.

    I thought perhaps the artist gave him an extra middle finger with which to flip us off, and painted him with his left shoe off his foot and available to throw at those whom he holds in contempt—us.

    The painting, to me, perfectly allows him to lie to stupid Americans, many of whom will continue to blindly adore him even if reality intrudes upon their worship, while revealing the truth to his bretheren.

    JMHO .

    As far as the painting goes, I find it….fitting.

    Looking at the first one centered in the ivy, it looks like his head is way too small and his hands far too big for it to be a decent portrait.

    After our current President has his done in 2025, the portraits will revert back to decent art rather than a caricature. 44 will look foolish and out of place in no time. Our future historians will laugh and ridicule, not only for being the most corrupt president, but he just looks silly sitting in a bunch of bushes painted by underpaid assistants. They willl laugh when they look up the so-called artist and find he’s a straight up racist. A racist painting a racist.

    I wonder if the Smithsonian will take it down after it has been shown in court #44 is a criminal. Heck, what if we find out it is true, he was never a U.S. citizen? Will his picture be removed? All the laws that he signed become null and void? I wonder if it will ever go that far, but I do hope it will go far enough to see him behind bars for a very long time.

    In 2012, Kehinde Wiley provided a clue…

    “But one already stands out: a tall, elegant black woman in a long blue dress—the canvas is enormous, eight feet by ten feet—calmly staring down the viewer. In one hand, she holds a knife. In the other, a cleanly severed brunette female head. “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” Wiley says.”
