Greg Haberny was the subject of Lyons Wier Gallery's entire booth at Context in Miami (2013). Haberny talks about his art in the video below.
His work is funny, political and provocative. Many people do not seem to know what to make of it. "People watching" near the New York City-based gallery's booth was rewarding. The work seems to offend some ("This doesn't look like Monet at ALL!") while others sort of chuckle and look embarrassed, maybe unsure if they are supposed to laugh.
One group seems to unreservedly relate--kids. And there is no greater compliment to any art that when intelligent young children are attracted to art. It says more than a herd of art critics lauding an artists work. Kids are the best critics and, sometimes, the best artists. How often do you see drawings and paintings by kids that are great? As they get older that changes; they learn what they are supposed to do instead of what they want to artistically.
Getting back to Haberny--his work should make you do more than just chuckle. There are serious political and social points in this work and some rather scathing commentary of our society as well.
