Rare 24 Karat Gold
15 November 2019 | by kmask2002See all my reviews

Good art gets your attention. Great art demands that you return to visit, view. Genius art requires that you revisit and discuss, perhaps try a hand at interpretation, stroke your chin, tap your temple, reaarange your thinking...

This is "Burning Cane:" Genius art. On all levels of acting, writing, riff performances, lighting, camera angles, intensity, tenderness, warmth, charm, anger and vividly displayed humanism, this collective of artists invites you, commands you to think and to question.

In 1907 Picasso did a piece of art, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, now at the Museum of Modern Art which broke all rules of engagement and turned the world upside down. Karen-kaia Livers Wendell Pierce et al do this in 2019. Mark your calendar for generations to come. Ken Mask
