A change of topic

After some thought I realize that I actually like Heilman’s work today and see no point in dwelling on the inadequacy of Dave Hickey or any of her other critics. Sitting in the studio last night I realized that one day I may have to admit to an influence from her work, although what I recognized in it back in the nineties was something in the air, already present in my own paintings. You can read an interesting conversation between Heilman and Ross Bleckner, or an article by Heilman about artists she likes. Perhaps another time I will explain my annoyance with baby-boomerism, or the mix up of mass culture memories and history. Ever heard of Harry Belafonte…?
