"Artspeak" is a bewildering mess of verbiage and mental calisthenics. Kathy Cartwright asks: why write essays about art at all? It's good to think about why we write. Someone once said that if you don't state your artistic direction then others will do it for you. That's why I like to write about art and my own direction.
One reward for writing about art is that on occasion you get some recognition. Over the weekend, ArtSlant posted my article on Matisse on their Facebook page.
I think that someone who spoke about one's art direction was Alyson B. Stanfield.
