Mr Frederickson=GiantMeth Lab=new media=recycled logs=Oscar Tuazon and his lame wanna be brother doing all the labor=Lead Pencil ugly=utter regional FABULOUSNESS! Throw some Rasputin spin in and BAM!!! (Emeril BAM! btw). Sounds disappointning but as long as it's an ethnic woman with a story then cool.
commented on Don't Die
It's Close To Midnight And Something Evil's Lurking In The Dark
Under The Moonlight You See A Sight That Almost Stops Your Heart
You Try To Scream But Terror Takes The Sound Before You Make It
You Start To Freeze As Horror Looks You Right Between The Eyes,
You Hear The Door Slam And Realize There's Nowhere Left To Run
You Feel The Cold Hand And Wonder If You'll Ever See The Sun
You Close Your Eyes And Hope That This Is Just
But All The While You Hear The Creature Creepin' Up
You're Out Of Time
Night Creatures Call
And The Dead Start To Walk In Their Masquerade
There's No Escapin' The Jaws Of The Alien This Time
This Is The End Of Your Life
They're Out To Get You, There's Demons Closing In On Every Side
They Will Possess You Unless You Change The Number On Your Dial
Now Is The Time For You And I To Cuddle Close Together...
..GOSH, .I do hope everyones O.K.!!!

"This is how people who grow up in Everett and Indiana first learn about art. Which is sort of sad and very familiar to me, and, I imagine, not so uncommon."
are you serious?
Your sad lack of ability to see and understand art in its proper context and its true power is such a qualifying statement on your utter lack of sophistication, it is embarrassing. Period. Your narrow mind is a travesty inflicted upon this barren terrain of art we are already forced to contend with here, but you are the overly sweet, toxic icing on that cake, sadly. You're a fool Miss Graves, and most know it, thankfully(hopefully).
commented on Three Abstractionists Make Stuff
I think that should be showing at the "POLE DRIP GALLERY" by the looks of that stiff crap
The references to Chinese Scholsrs rocks is stupid and innocuous,the gooey organic assimilations are farther removed from the truth than those paintings are from actually being good. The ridiculous flowery over embellished references, not to mention pretentious and downright meaningless artist statement is a perfect match to your collegiate level overly worked and painfully forced attempts at critique Jen. It makes me scream "GAWD I DETEST WHAT ART IS AND HAS BECOME ESPECIALLY IN THIS TOWN...!!!"

Nationalist Who Believes the Holocaust Is a Deliberately Exaggerated Myth
"I did confront him, like, 'Do you consider yourself a neo-Nazi or sympathetic to that?' And he said no, that he didn't," Ott said.
Casually inviting him to exhibit a swastika wedding cake in a Bumbershoot exhibition (of all places)without doing any of the curatorial or critical work it takes to evaluate his art and its validity is exactly why the "local art glitterati" should be taking a long hard look at themselves and their schtick-I mean-is not Yoko Ott the head of the new Behnke Foundation to advance NW artists out of the area-blah blah blah? Promote away fool-and all the other self-appointed art elite that have embraced this charlatan and the such. Oh, and drop the "like" in your delivery Ms.Ott-I believe you left Junior high some time ago.

I regret that the artists (and the like) sound so broken and weak,
...or just really boring.
