Letter to ARC

From Patrick Boyd

Published before 2005


I applaud your work. I am prostrate with admiration. I fully support and endorse your sentiments. This is art and I join with you in celebrating it. In my humble opinion, you could take 99.9% of "modern" art and stick it on a pre-primary classroom wall where it belongs. Fortunately I don't know all the pretentious, overblown gobbledyspeak of the art cognoscenti, so I can't bore everyone in earshot senseless with the secret language of the art trendy as to why something that looks like a handful of manure hurled from fifty paces is in fact a great work of art. So I'll just have to continue going with good old common sense -- beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I am beholding beauty on your site. Salutations!
