Post from Mark Barry

With regards to [Kara] Walker and [John] Currin, I admire their work a lot.

The edge they may have originally had for me is tamed by overexposure.

As much as I like Mr Currin’s painting I equally dislike the boasting, something about being the greatest painter working or similar. Only Ali is the greatest, beyond him it becomes just silly, paint already.

Mark Barry is a painter living in Baltimore.
