My Love For You is Like An Etch-A-Sketch

My Love for You is Like an Etch-A-Sketch

Unknown, Artist (Acrylic on Plywood 20X30")

1990's - Franticism

Unknown explores the raw proto-realism of the 1990's in this ode to the root of bad art, the Etch-A-Sketch. While the nude form only occupies the far right of the picture, one wonders on what astral plane she floats while her nervous aura communicates a frantic energy wave into the vapor that is space.

"My Love for You is Like an Etch-A-Sketch" is an historic artifact in the world of Bad Art. Unknown's work was declared an instant masterpiece by the Esteemed Director of the mothership of Bad Art, the Musuem of Bad Art (MOBA) in Dedham, Massachusetts. The work led to the formation of AFBAM (The American Federation of Bad Art Museums) and an immediate agreement was reached, the painting shipped to Dedham where it became part of MOBA's art show of nudes in a greater Boston healthclub.
