I am looking for a word that describes something whose meaning is instantly recognizable, that is so simple as to be offensively lazy, and yet completely apropos.
Such a word might describe Kazimir Malevich's painting Black Square:
Chef's kiss conveys artfulness and minimalism, but not to the point of laziness or offense.
I like sophomoric for its literal translation "wise fool", but the word is not used to suggest brilliance.
Cunning has the right connotation of artfulness, but its connotations of subtlety, and further, deception, make it inappropriate.
Stupidly/offensively obvious almost works, but is boring. Unsubtle is ok; blunt better. Both don't convey the artfulness that I'm looking for. I love the divine feel of manifest; I'm wondering if this is the best I can do. I'm tempted to coin kazimirean, but of course that's too indulgent.
