if this would be a reasonable reason, we'd have to re-do the century-old tyring discussions about what is good art or bad art and is there such a thing like "non-subjective taste". We don't want to go back there.remove Balthus' painting because it's just a shitty painting
Ha. Don't like him, eh?absolutely, positively, 100 per cent couldn't agree with you more...unless it's late renoir...
I think that guy is full of beans, as the kids say. There's something else at work there. He's not just "a curious and adventurous artist," he's got some other kind of screw loose. Like the "I really love drugs, I need to come up with some kind of excuse to get really fucked up" screw.Bryan Lewis Saunders
Did he actually say that he resented it? I must have missed that. I got the impression he wished that wasn't the only art of his that people were interested in.i actually didn't get all the way through the article but just finished it now.
in what way genuine? that he has integrity about his work?
he may, but the work itself - the quality - is very bad.
he says he resents that the drug pictures are the only ones people are interested in but that's the only interesting
thing about his work.
