Letter to ARC

From Mark Bradford Strutt

Published before 2005


Dear Fred,

I see now though that for the world of art you probably have a much higher calling than I in the greater scheme of things.

I just now, for the first time read your ARC Phiosophy, and you could have taken some words right out of my mouth, ie: "the emperor has no clothes", yes I my self have used this description many times about the bad art of some poor soul in some public gallery of snobbery.

Well Fred your philosophy statement was just too good. In fact at times, tears could come. It is so close to being perfect that any kind of critique would be nit-picking. And as a full time professional artist realist painter I can't give you thanks enough for what you said in it. I wish you more than the best in your future endeavors.

Mark Bradford Strutt
