  1. Irreverent, surely. Smokin’ flag of the self-portrait. After the flies, this made me laugh (well, that made me laugh too). It’s postmodern, oh it is. Witty, self-abnegating, pastiches of tradition, the whole crumbling artifice of art. Burning of the boy scouts of America. Now where’d that come from?
