Our friends at the Report have us on the ropes with their expert banzai charge. We had to dig deep into our well of knowledge of our favorite visual artists. We present here a mash of painters from the top: Charles Sheeler, Fritz Scholder, Georges Di Chirico, Sigmar Polke, Roger Brown, and Ralston Crawford. Maybe not the most well known painters, but they have all had a significant impact on the creative efforts of the ANS image department.
We admit that our nasty little sneak attack upon the unwitting Otto Mannix Report was an attempt to overwhelm the Report's Art History Department with a counter gallery of our own. Fair enough, the Report's response has got us off guard and this return fire is an attempt to buy time while we reach into our wheelhouse. To make this a fair fight we propose that we limit our exchanges to 20th century Painting and Sculpture. And then we escalate from there!
American National Standard is a pseudo industrial corporation created as an experiment in internet art. Its mere presence here is calculated to investigate creative opportunities. It has several divisions such as KinoRama, an imaging collective; Lee Hiway productions a music and performance entity, and the creative products of Ed Porter. All operations are under the umbrella of the FBC conglomerate, of which Mr. Ed Porter is the Mid-Regional Division manager.
