Since it's inception, Inter Sekt has been at the heart of a virtual art revolution. We are willing to shed some blood and break some bones so as to re-cast the face of the art world in our own image; guerilla soldiers in far away lands often speak of a kind of tunnel vision on the battle field when confronted by the enemy. Survival instinct kicks in, adrenaline, the thrill of the kill. We realize that at some points, in our unique situation, we too get tunnel vision in our love of battle and forget to share what goes into the creation of some of your favorite pieces of art.
After turning these thoughts over in our minds for quite some time we have decided to open the doors of the New World Creative for the very first time, in order to give you an inside look at Inter Sekt, as well as some pieces you can expect to see in future shows. As always we thank you for taking the time to stop by and we hope you enjoy!
A great specter is looming over the art world: the specter of Inter|Sekt. For far too long we have watched the artists of our generation turned into a disposable commodity, bought and sold by the galleries, stifled in their expression by the tastes of the art consultants who purchase pieces on behalf of financially minded clients who want a "solid investment".
They have been amalgamated into schools, said schools are a device of gallerists and art historians to divide and conquer the creatives and free thinkers.
For we live in a nation which thinks itself to be free yet is not, they expect the same of their artists.
Our culture has been raped and plundered by the upper echelon, picked apart and sold by the same greed mongers who claim to be it's patrons. The tool which has most effectively stunted the growth of modern American art in particular is the clever indoctrination of this idea of schools to not only the art student but anyone whom even reads a brief survey of the history of art sees that it is broken up into these categorized schools; ultimately the philosophies of these various sects creates conflict, division, and ultimately destruction of the morale and submission to the established order. Thus rendering the creative spirit confused and useless.
This helps curb the rebellious spirit of the average citizen outside of the art world in other spheres of society.
Art history is a lie and galleries are dens of thieves!
Inter|Sekt is not destroying the schools or the galleries, we are simply showing you they were never real, at least not in a world outside of that constructed by academics to sell text books to art students.
The reign of the gallerists and art consultants is over when you want it to be.
From the ashes of the indoctrinated schools of every form of art shall arise The New World Creative.
