The artist says the two paintings that are being talked about in this thread were inspired by the Biblical story of Judith beheading the Assyrian general Holoferne. At the time, the artist told The New York Times that he was inspired by the classical European depictions of Bible stories by Caravaggio and Gentileschi, only he chose to depict Judith as a black woman and Holoferne as a white woman. He commented: “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing”.


Judith is one of seven books not found in a "protestant" bible and considered apocryphal. I dont think Eric is a catholic, so I doubt you can bait him with the theological inference.

But to answer your point, the art in the OP is parochial in technique and fatuously divisive in content. Comparing it to the paintings noted in your post is akin to comparing a ford pinto to a ferrari. In other words, as any fourth grader using google could point out, they are both cars.

Tell the artist, don't tell me. He said that's what inspired him - six years ago.

Pfft. Ridiculous.

Take the Lady of Shallot for example:

Beautiful painting.

I enjoy the work of John William Waterhouse. Also, plenty of other great artists from this era of art.

Look at the differences in these two and the garbage from the Obama artist. The detail in both of these paintings is obvious. They were painstakingly done and it shows. It looks like the Obama artists copy and pasted background images. There's no way he painted all the items on the backgrounds.

This pretty much sums up the entire Obama era. No attention to detail, lazy, generic methods...

Here's one of the earlier submissions that didn't make the cut.

Anyone else notice that Obama has six fingers on his left hand?
