Regarding my statement concerning Barnet Newman:

Patience Young, you are correct. Nihilsm was a bad choice of words and
didn't really reflect my intentions. This is what happens when you write
late at night after your kids are off the phone!!! A more accurate term
might be "pseudo-anarchistic" or some such nonsense. Basically I was
attempting to get across the idea that some artists work, be it minimalist
or non-objectivist can sucessfully eschew traditional P&E to create their
work, (And what poetic work Newman's is --- I've loved it since I was in
high school!) and even though it may not appear to be there, the underlying
foundation IS.

Thanks for the correction.
