Digital Art: Andrew Kovner
Andrew Kovner; Paintings & Giclees
PRIMARY SOURCE I made this work with my late friend and artist, Richard Scully in mind. Richard thought his job was to add a link to the Canon of Art.
Me.? I took his sage Giacometti advice (There is only the model and the artist) and returned to The Corrida and made sport, ("Sport", Oh Yes! - a run with indeterminate outcome) but I have second thoughts (as did he).

Well, Dave and I periodically throw tirades back and forth, this complaint that complaint. The idea is that someday we might agree on something, hard to say. Studio Time is fleeting, Letter Writing is Not Production, so I built my response in Studio Time.
A few weeks later, I was invited to an Opening at Otis College and a Party there after. Turns out, my Artist Friend was a very good friend of the attending Scott Hess. I asked the bonvivant and gracious Hess Two Important Questions (and regaled him with this story).
Question One: Could he recall my provocative piece at the Exhibition he Judged? No he replied. (I accepted that.)
However as if I was Dave, I simply did not believe him.
Our friend Gloria has been more involved with dispersing her clutter than creating more, for years now. Of course that is prudent, after all who needs another "stinking" painting?
This simple Pictograph was supposed to depict a Fairy Tale resolution for her and Artists with a spatial conundrum.
I was surprised how opaque this piece was for my Fellows; and therefore raising my cynicism level two percentage points. Consider this tag a baby aspirin for high blood pressure.
