what tribe do you belong to?

in visual art, one of the first observations identify the basic tendencies of an artist. is it "poussanist" or "reubenist"? does it impose order or emotions? of course that is an over simplification, but for crude basics it works.
interestingly enough this applies to the arts in general. it is not bad or good. it is simply there, a preference. active verses static, organic or man made? logic or intuition?
looking at all the works of art i have access through modern medias, i feel full- too full. this has been happening over the last 2 years. why is there all this "stuff" there? i see the same art over and over again.
and then i see something new, a breath of fresh air. that is what i was looking for. here are my answers. transcendence though color and paint.
my tribe?
