It means something different: Charles Gute's "The Corrections" creates artistic fluorishes
CORRECTING BARRY, COURTESY OF CATHARINE CLARK GALLERY

In concept, they balloon — questions surface regarding what is and isn't art, especially when extracted from within an art industry context, as alienated labor is made visible much to the embarrassment of the original authorial content. The proofs, like those blocks found on Syjuco's newspapers, politicize the source material, making those sweet, colored marks difficult to ignore. *
