Feb 18, 2013 Robert Boyd commented on Charles Krafft Is a White Nationalist Who Believes the Holocaust Is a Deliberately Exaggerated Myth.
True story--Charles Krafft told me he cried when he saw Schindler's List.

CATSPAWN666: I agree with what you've said (most of all about your understandable disinterest in art gossip from another city. The last Seattle art gossip that interested me was the split-up and reuniting of Larry Ried and Tracey Rowland...) Britt's journey as an artist is off to an inauspicious start, and the Art Guys have nothing to prove--they've been making great work since the 80s. I only wrote what I did above because even if Britt flames out into obscurity after this, at least he has a pretty decent legacy as a local art writer.

Hey CATSPAW666. I'm slightly mystified by Douglas Britt/Devon Britt-Darby's roadtrip/social sculpture/whatever-it-is. However, ten years from now--and today even--he has a body of work that is respectable--as a critic. This piece might be completely off the wall and crazy, but his writing for the Houston Chronicle has generally been sensitive, analytical and accessible--qualities that are hard to find in one critic. I'm sorry to see him go because his voice has been an important one in Houston. I don't always agree with him, but I always enjoy reading his work.
