Local painter wants to know why


Post from Tim McFarlane…commenting on Pierre et Gilles post, 4/26/03

In one word…wwwwhhhhyyyyyyyy? I didn’t see the ad in question, but whenever I see an image of their work, I just think it’s a waste of space. Maybe they are commenting on the shallowness of fashion, celebrity, etc…or celebrating it, I don’t know and don’t much care. The work seems like nothing more than sugar-coated fluff.

While I can understand the reaction to it in the context of the other articles and ads in that issue of AiA, I think most people see it for what it is, the probable result of too much money and no real talent.

Tim McFarlane shows his paintings at Bridgette Mayer Gallery.
