List Of Art Bollocks Words (or terminology!)…

In the library I found myself drawn to books of illustrations, I will look at all the pictures in this book until it is no longer there. I am currently on my second one of these books. The last book was a book of women’s graffiti which I liked because it was done by women. And it had boobs in it too, which is always good. However this book soon disappeared from the shelves when the temporary library was switched to the new slightly bigger and bleaker looking library that it is now. I am now on The complete Zaha Hadid. Which is full of illustrations that I myself would have ended up drawing in the style of if I continued to do art at school.

As I only look at the pictures I do not pay much attention to the words, however on a brief encounter with the vocabulary I found it quite interesting and also a good source of amusement as the style of the vocabulary was very similar to one I encountered on a web page called “The art bollocks generator” that was sent to me as a source of bored stuff to look at by an old friend.

Based on this I have decided to compile a list of these words based first on this book and then perhaps on others.

I do not understand what a lot of it means.

This list will be updating as something to relieve my boredom…
