Mythopoetical Reality

Woody explains "Mythopoetical Reality" rather badlyToday’s cartoon features WoodChip’s artist and new cartoon character –  Van Bough.

Van Bough just loves to draw and paint, which he’s pretty good at, although sloppy when he does it.  He’s always spilling his paint all over the ground.

He’s also often confused by art critic hacks who write about his paintings.

For example, one recently wrote that he was “Illustrating the term ‘objectivism’ to denote a mythopoetical reality.  Thus, the subject was interpolated into a dialectic paradigm of discourse that includes narrativity as a paradox.”

Van Bough doesn’t know what all that means.  He was just painting a tree, really.

All we can say is don’t worry about it, Van Bough.  And welcome to the WoodChips Forest.  We are quite partial to trees ;-) .

And have a nice day – J. Daniel

P.S. The new Van Bough WoodChips character was inspired by Iain M.’s comment on Drayton Bird’s Facebook post today about meaningless gibberish from art hacks – go figure.  Drayton’s Facebook posts always seem to foster interesting dialog.

I was drawn to the phrase “Mythopoetical Reality” like a moth to a flame, and obsessed with drawing a cartoon about it, even though I was starving, wanted to cook breakfast and go to the beach … which I am going to do RIGHT NOW.

P.P.S. Iain is hereby designated an Honorary WoodChip for his inspirational comment and will be enrolled on the hallowed Honorary WoodChips page this week as Iain M.

    I’d laugh…if I could understand the initial post. *confused…* Will reread it again after I have a snack, so my blood sugar is higher. I think my capacity for comprehension will be increased by then.

    Got your blood sugar level up yet :-) You don’t fool me – your comprehension level is WAY higher than this – you just can’t make sense outta nonsense (chuckle).
