Ceal Floyer's "Works on Paper"
Have you ever showed a uninformed relative a Cy Twombly painting? Did they tell you it looked like scribble and they could do it? Of course, any right-minded Twombly fan would be offended at such a glib insult. Well in 2009, Ceal Floyer collected numerous scraps of paper that people had used to test out pens and eventually hung them in the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, making you maybe reconsider how artful your next Sharpie test can be before you scrawl out your grocery shopping list. In the twenty-first century, nearly anything can be art, even your pen test scribbles.
