Whenever I walk past Pier One I look at the display windows and wonder, who finds mass-produced art attractive and actually wants it hanging on their walls?
Admittedly, it’s quite snobby of me.
I believe in one-of-a-kinds, originals, cool shit you find in the back of a thrift store, or art produced by friends.
So as I’m checking out at the Salvation Army the other day, I saw this hanging on the wall:
And I’m totally excited because it’s a real canvas stretched on a real wooden frame and there’s even a layer of gesso on some sections.
Convinced I’ve scored, I hang it on the wall, sit back and appreciate my new bird.
Then I notice that it’s hanging a bit cattywumpus and when I take it down to adjust, I see the sticker on the back:
Pier One Imports.
Guess who like mass-produced art.
