MY RESPONSE TO: Is anyone out there as irritated as much as I am by interminable, pretentious and self-aggrandising artists' statements?

far out - finally someone got effected by the irritation today - I was waiting and waiting and waiting - and finally - the fact is that there an unlimited or maybe perhaps an infinite number of different ways of seeing this issue as either a hindrance - unnecessary or a great opportunity to communicate with viewers of any piece of art out into the future - and depending on which approach or point of view a person takes - that will determine how much energy and effort and whatever else it takes to make such a statement worthwhile - perhaps a person just throws together something short and trite and does not even begin to examine how what he or she is saying now may perhaps be interpreted way on into the future - maybe a century or two from this point on - Van Gogh was in a sense extremely lucky in this regard since he had his brother Theo to write to and this may have helped him express himself and the concept of writing to a brother or sister - or a close friend - father or mother may do well to at least make things understandable and perhaps keep the high minded un understandable art speak to a bare minimum if you have it in your statement at all - VAN GOGH In his own words! …………………………………………… 1-9-2012FABCDEFGH by Walter Paul Bebirian
