    Hi. I recently discovered this site because of a mention in Glasstire. I wanted you to know that I wrote a review of your anthology, Critical Mess, years after it was published. The review is here: http://thegreatgodpanisdead.blogspot.com/2010/03/is-there-crisis-in-art-criticism.html

    I am enjoying The Silo and look forward to seeing more.

    Just wanted to congratulate you on an Amazing piece in the new Art In America. It was nice to read about Schnabel in a way that writers of the past have sometimes shied away from. I have always admired his virility as a painter. Though I think it’s his writings that have made me more a fan of his. His book CVJ is a fantastic collection of writings that I would recommend to anyone interested in art or painting. Especially the part where he describes his meeting with Brice Marden…my personal favorite part of the book.

    Anyway, thanks again for this writing. Looking forward to reading more of your papers.
    Cheers. Jeffrey

    Your recent article in Art in America, The Big Picture. Reconsidering Julian Schnabel, was fantastic. The artwork was well-described and comparisons to various art movements were well calculated. I am extremely impressed.

    Thank you for your “Provisional Painting” articles, they have meant alot to me.

  5. Thank you for the GREAT Colescott piece. Robert remains unduly under-recognized and we’re really hoping that changes!
