:7 I guess that's a classic response from artists when they get over-reactions, especially about something like The Gates which is so relatively benign. Even in the case of very provocative and controversial artworks...well, it's only art--a safe, tame, controlled form of expression, usually relegated to museums and galleries in America. It's amazing how many people don't see the outrageous ugliness that goes on all around them, while they will huff and puff about an art piece. I have a theory that people complain about art because there's an individual behind it. The bigger stuff is created by impersonal conglomerates which they feel powerless to confront.
