"Then there are all the fussy collages of cut-up porn, furniture
catalogues, ads, Internet screen-grabs, modernist architecture, urban
wastelands, endangered species, sixties protests, or (of course)
art-historical jpegs. We also see small-scale, colored, neatly framed,
or cut-up photographs about photography. All of this Neo-Mannerism is an
art of infinite regress. Defensive. Predictable. Safe. Well-defended.
Loved by brainy magazines, websites, and curators but so far up its own
ass that it can't breathe."
