Yes, maybe a ban on words like "mimetic" would help. I'm all old and shit but I think a good piece of visual art needs no writing next to it.

Thanks to Jen Graves for the article. I unfiended Charlie Krafft as soon as I got the gist of his screeds. Shame on anyone who hasn't. As to his art being revered, not by me. I showed at Roscoe Louie and have been around here a while and never understood what Charlie was trying to do except be clever. I had a drink with him once and found him to be a smart ass blowhard, but yes, smart.
To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson (who we all know wasn't perfect, but was right on in this sentiment) "If anyone says dumb-ass shit, that shit should be put on a pedestal for all to see, so reasonable people can talk about it".
The established art scene here is too old and too white. That Charlie was put up with for so long indicates that to be true. Seattle's scene will always be a backwater as long as the old white guys who run the show stay in power. Happily they are old and will be dead soon.
