Thank you Roberta Smith

There was a wonderful article written by Robera Smith in the New York Times on Sunday, Post-Minimal to the Max. She talks about how museums "rarely transcend the sea of sameness" and that "what's missing is art that seems made by one person out of intense personal necessity, often by hand...Their shows share a visual austerity and colness of temperature that are dispiritingly one-note."

She goes on to state "museums offer shows aplenty, but compelling art, especially painting, made from personal necessity is scarce....The small show devoted to an artist who doesn't have an immense reputation and worldwide market becomes rarer and rarer..." Smith is suggesting to curators that they think less about bringing in the big bucks and more about "tapping into their own subjectivity to show us what they really love."

How very refreshing!
