Michelle -

I'm still a little inclined to believe the reason it
has even sprung up here, (if I'm understanding
correctly) goes back to those artists who did drag it
into the art world...

I'm pretty sure this is entirely contradictory to what
someone was previously pointing out about the artist
as some sort of hero, but some of these guys really
are/were geniuses in my opinion.
