Art vs. Art, and the winner is...

[image, winner artist Amory Abbott]

Art vs. Art's 2007 Grand Champion was painted by Indianapolis-based Amory Abbott who won the title, the belt and $2500! The final round came down to two previous champions, head to head, and Amory came out on top and won the bout.

Cute, is exactly why this image sucks. If you want cute buy a teddy bear. What is wrong with you people?

The event should be called Illustrator Art vs. Illustrator Art. And cute is right. It is frustrating that people in this city still need a recognizable image to hold on to. I'm not whining but I am frustrated.

This is art vs. art, not a gallery show. Of course, pieces of illustration would have the advantage. It would be a mistake to frame this as a competition that determines the absolutely best art and artist abstracted from the occasion - (even though Amory Abbott could easily be considered among the best if not the best in Indy). The occasion brings together a presentation of visual art under the commonly agreed upon constraints of time and materials, within the social-psychological atmosphere of a track and field event and meeting of gladiators. Painting the right piece in 4 hrs for this precise occasion for this motley audience is an artwork, an art-happening in itself, but again, it is not the venue for determining the best art or artist in Indy judged by the standards of art critics or historians.
