Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.

Sometimes you want grand serious art and other times you just want to see an artist make a giant cake and put it on the floor. It is for this simple reason why Claes Oldenburg has a special place in my heart, he reminds me that art can simply just be fun, minus pretension.
