Words and Thinking

This is the new area for writing. As opposed to the studio which is dedicated to visual work, this area is dedicated to the written word as it relates to the visual work, both my own, and other work that I encounter in the world and on the internet.

I stand by my conviction that the internet is a lousey place to see work. Seeing is hardly the right word at all. The internet is a terrific place to read about work and to glimpse rather poor shadows of it. I don't believe there is any qualitative difference between a Michelangelo on the internet and the most tawdry web-site. It is all just electronic light.

And electronic light is very good for transmitting one narrow experience of perception. This blog is about that experience and the others that art affords us.
