"Perhaps art historians have tended to concentrate too much on re-search and too little on the origional search
I find the re-search mindset all too common in "opinions" expressed. What stands out is an amazing inability to see the art thing, to experience it, to be aware of ones interaction with it, how one participates in creating a reality for it in the guise of an original opinion supported only by "conventional" " thinking" , i.e., re-search. The original search is rare because it involves relating to the making, the trials and triumphs, the accomplishments, the potential ways of viewing, and, your role in all this as a unique viewer. Its that inner freedom thing, again, v.s.becoming an " unwitting prisoners to an idea". That is why I love strange work that I've never seen before. Its so much easier to like it.
