I find that artists who tread into humour risk being easily dismissed. We like art to be "beautiful" or "provocative" but art that makes us smile we tend to shrug off. Given that our culture is filled with self-help books, tshirts and herbal remedies to make us happier, it seems like art that makes us smile should given its proper due. Maybe the AGO permanent collection could stand a few more Hobots. I for one would probably spend more time among the bucolic paintings of Canadian history if there was a chance I might see a flying steak.
