The need to feel superior seems to be greater than the desire to paint with some artists...

Huh?

I think there will always be artists, of all types, who confuse "good" with "what I do"--whatever it is that "they" do. It's not everyone in the current "crop" of "Academic Realists"...and the "snobs" aren't limited to that one group, either!

I enjoy a variety of art, not only paintings. Rothko is one of my favourites, as is Vermeer--and I'm a big fan of sculpture, performance art, street art, film, digital art, etc.

The kind of work I do is fairly narrow--but then, I don't confuse "what is good" with "what I do."

It sounded like you were castigating the "academic realist types", which would be doing the same thing you're accusing "them" of doing.

Not in the slightest little way is what I said the same thing as what artists do when they put down an entire style of art for being different from theirs. The Academy did it, the Modernists did it, the Postmodernists did it, and now the new Academy is doing it - and here we are full circle, apparently without having learned anything from it. I do my best not to do it - and I don't think I have, at least not anytime recently, and I'm pretty darn sure not in this thread.
