Everything is dangerous, and in one minute our lives could be transformed immeasurably regardless of our economic or educational status, ethnicity or gender. Disasters define our humanity; as French author Marcel Proust wrote: “Disaster puts one in touch with oneself: suffering fuels creativity.” However, in a morbid way, disasters do unify us as a people, and unfortunately, tend to be more unifying than art.
I am so sorry for not posting since last November. I just finished writing a novel (whew!), looking for an agent, plus focusing on writing for http://fineart.about.com. But I hope to start blogging here soon. Thanks again for being so patient.

I just started writing about Fine Art at About dot com, the website owned by the New York Times.

Roberta Smith's biting, emasculating, but insightful take on Jeff Koons art of simulated sex with Cicciolina contains great gems such as:
"Typical of the lowest common denominator of heterosexual convention, it is Cicciolina who does most of the gussying..."
"The innocence of the child is replaced by the cluelessness of the man, one who confuses posing and empty exhibitionism with emotional vulnerability."
