from 2009I read the whole thing; it gives a lot of clarity in the unfathomable lack of art in contemporary art. I've spent my life resenting the reality that what I wanted to do as an artist was so fundamentally different from what was acceptable in the art world I think I'd have committed slow suicide by drugs or liquor if I didn't at least have commercial art as a creative outlet. I actually can see the reasons for the Us Vs. Them mentality of it all. When you begin to understand the inexplicable, you can find a foothold to oppose it with logic rather than emotional dismissal.
