Come on Down, The Price is Right!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

What's the current market value of A3 Cyan paper glued onto a large picture frame.
Since the frame is second hand I'd only give them $33.33 tops.
Edit
Upon further inspection it would appear a small lump 1/3 from the left like it wasn't cleaned before glued on and a fly landed pushing out that area.
Just above the fly lump it looks like it shit itself before it landed to certain death and crapped all over the top edge of the paper above the lump.

What I particularly like about this piece it is the way the artist perfectly captures the absurdity of modern art. I especially like his use of a plain hue to capture the mundane atmosphere of an otherwise bland, undramatic scene. His nonchalant emotion and lethargic attitude clearly shows through with this work which I think will inevitably go down in art history. Right down. To the bottom.

$2,200?! That's a bloody bargain. Try "Blood Red Mirror" (Gerhard Richter) for a cool $1.1m

Image

Or perhaps even more delightful this classic 1955 piece by Robert Ryman whose pieces usually fetch somewhere around the $10m mark ...

Image

and I quote...
SomeAbsoluteFuckwitBornYesterday wrote: Artwork description & Analysis: Ryman considers this painting to be his first "professional" work. Though primarily orange, small points of green paint can be seen, mostly at the edges of the canvas. Inspired by Abstract Expressionist works at MoMA, Ryman bought some art supplies from a local store. He later recalled his thought process when approaching his early works: "I thought I would see what would happen. I wanted to see what the paint would do, how the brushes would work. That was the first step. I just played around. I had nothing really in mind to paint. I was just finding out how the paint worked, colors, thick and thin, the brushes, surfaces."

Unlike almost all of Ryman's later works, this piece is essentially a study of color and the interaction between pigments. It appears at first glance to be monochromatic, but a closer inspection reveals the subtlety both in texture over the surface as well as in the variations in tone. At the edges of the canvas, the orange contrasts sharply with the green paint behind it, and in certain areas, such as the bottom right, it is possible to see where thinner regions of orange paint have begun to blend with the layers of color underneath them. Also unlike Ryman's other works, there appears to be no underlying "strategy" that creates a sense of unity; instead, there is an uneven application of thickness to the canvas. This, however, forecasts the way that Ryman's use of paint in his mature work tends to be nearly sculptural relative to the picture plane, and like the rest of Ryman's work its form assumes that of the square canvas, devoid of representation.

You can tell those paintings were done by profesional painters and definitely not Khmers, as there are no paint brush marks on the wall and I bet there are no paint drips on the floor too.

Not sure about that, I reckon the artist took it out of his studio and left those marks there!

But back to the turquoise masterpiece, I've just noticed that unlike almost all of Sopheap's later works, this piece is essentially a study of color and the interaction between pigments. It appears at first glance to be monochromatic, but a closer inspection reveals the subtlety both in texture over the surface as well as in the variations in tone. At the edges of the canvas, the white contrasts sharply with the turquoise paint behind it, and in certain areas, such as the bottom right, it is possible to see where thinner regions of turquoise paint have begun to blend with the layers of color underneath them. Also unlike Sopheap's other works, there appears to be no underlying "strategy" that creates a sense of unity; instead, there is an uneven application of thickness to the canvas. This, however, forecasts the way that Sopheap's use of paint in his mature work tends to be nearly sculptural relative to the picture plane, and like the rest of Sopheap's work its form assumes that of the square canvas, devoid of representation.

Let's call it $1,202,200? :hattip:

A tip of the hat to you, Sir. You are a master at words. I think this is exactly how it would be sold to the public.
