Artist Creates INVISIBLE ĎArtí and Collectors are Paying Millions

Artist Creates INVISIBLE ĎArtí and Collectors are Paying Millions

27-year-old artist Lana Newstrom says she is the first artist in the world to create invisible ďart.Ē In this documentary, CBC Radio traveled to her empty studio to learn more about Lana and her unusual artistic process.

According to Newstrom, ďĒJust because you canít see anything, doesnít mean I didnít put hours of work into creating a particular pieceĒ.

ďArt is about imagination and that is what my work demands of the people interacting with it. You have to imagine a painting or sculpture is in front of you,Ē says Newstrom. Paul Rooney, Lanaís agent, believes she might be the greatest artist alive working today: ďWhen she describes what you canít see, you begin to realize why one of her invisible works can fetch upwards of a million dollars.Ē said Rooney. Listen to learn more about Lana Newstrom and her invisible art:

I thought of this scam back in elementary school! She stole my idea!

It astonishes me how crummy people are at figuring out when something is a joke.

Because you knew right off the bat, without looking it up and just happen to fall on a link that says so.

I'll admit, the jokes in the radio report tipped me off.

Even if this is a joke, it's not like artists haven't tried similar things for real, such as Robert Irwin's scrim exhibits:



See that gauzy sheet over the window? That's the exhibit.

Here's a painting by the same guy:

Re: Artist Creates INVISIBLE ĎArtí and Collectors are Paying Millions

I am going to poop in the toilet, call it art, and sell it for a million dollars.

Okay, maybe not a million dollars, but there might be some artsy fartsy people out there that would still pay good money for it. I could quit my job and just make a living by pooping.

Re: Artist Creates INVISIBLE ĎArtí and Collectors are Paying Millions

Say what you want but I think this art is beautiful and I couldn't resist and bought one. Shipping was quick and cheaper than I thought. I paid extra for it to be signed in invisible ink by the artist - but that just makes it even better. I hung it in the perfect spot and it's been 2 days and my wife hasn't even noticed yet.

This is definitely a joke, but isn't this what religions have been doing for thousands of years?

I want to punch the shit out of every person in that Youtube screencap. Just for being the cultured, pretentious fucks they are.

Did she turn in a drawing that looked like blank paper and say it was actually polar bears dating marshmallows in a snowstorm?

You have to learn to speak art-talk. If you can't explain it in the appropriate language, your concept doesn't fly there either.
