Spotlight On the Art Critic*

Normally, my personal comments occupy this space relative to the featured painting (above). However, as a change of pace I’ve decided to, instead post comments from various media art critics and their constructive criticisms. I hope you will find their opinions informative.

William Smyth – Boston News art critic:
I find this work menacingly playful because of the way the internal dynamic of the sexual placement of the packages brings the composition within the realm of discourse to the distinctive informal design. A masterful approach to say the least.

Margaret Fishbine – Los Angeles Globe, art crtitic:
It’s difficult to enter into this work because of how the subaqueous qualities of the traditional motifs create a unique and subterraneous participation in the critical design dialogue of the current century.

Mort Figamann, – San Francisco Free Press, art critic:
With regard to the issue of content, the optical suggestions of the purity of line contextualize the inherent over-specificity of the greater rectangle. especially with regard to  the unequal measures of the composition. 

Albert Bloomberg, – Arizona Herald, art critic:
It should be noted that the icon relationships of the elements of design seem very disturbing in light of the distinctive formal and informal juxtapositions of shape, value, and color, relative to exemplifying the trash cans as a contemporary landscape. Close, but no cigar.
