I like the introduction of the blue color field and the different tones of the photographs ...is the bottom image a graphite drawing? If it is ...gives a nice balance to the piece IMO. ~moe

There is an extreme coolness here which grows out of the Warholian tradition. I have a personal problem with this because I think that this is a very shallow tradition. I also find this kind of ambiguous art to be impervious to criticism because there is a built in invulnerability here. I think that Artists should care about their art and that they should expose a soft underbelly. This is a very personal point of view but it also is the reason that I find your work hard to embrace.

thanks Moe--yep, it's a drawing. Harry, good presentation of the argument between intellectual art and the visceral.

Harry- I don't understand the "Warholian tradition" with "shallow" ..I'm not a great fan of Warhol but can greatly appreciate his talent and what he was conveying. I also don't understand the "invulnerability" ..is it because some do not understand the art and therefore feel less than comfortable critiquing or relating to the piece? I think all artists care about their pieces and all art does not need to expose some "soft underbelly" as in some personal emotional experience...if that is the sense you are referring to, ie... some emotional gobbly gook. ~moe

I've nothing against intellectual Art. Warhol's art was not intellectual and his followers are clever snickering Bozos not intellectuals. Poker is just no fun if you don't bet big. Art about nothing is nothing.

And you know precisely what you're talking about here....how?

Art about nothing is nothing.

I am so glad you said this.
