I too have many a heated discussion with my (musician) husband! However I am
very sure of my openness as to what is Art. I try to explain the historical
timeliness of certain artworks. Duchamp is one of those artists revisited
often in those arguments and Mapplethorp as well. Context is something that
is not always persuading to him. I have had certain success in explaining
postmodernism when relating the concepts to music. He is SO open where that
is concerned. I find a great deal of connection to Barbara Kruger in my own
text and image pieces, and many people can see her work as valid. When it
comes to nonobjective works I have to remember that it was not until I stood
before a number of Robert Motherwell and Barnett Neumann paintings that I
connected to them spiritually. At the National Gallery of Art I saw the
Stations of the Cross and had an epiphany!
