Thanks to Guy Ben Ari and Leah Wolff for inviting me to be a part of their event, Waiting Room, at This Red Door on Saturday night. Those are my two paintings hanging top right. I had a lot of fun recreating that long lost winter glove!
Telling it like it is: Keith J. Varadi. Slam.
"If one were to sit in on a graduate school critique, attend an art opening or poetry reading, or read a review, or any press for that matter, on an exhibition, event, or publication, it would be rare to find someone taking a stance on or for something. So many artists these days are afraid to take a chance, to look stupid, or to offend or agitate someone else. So many artists are afraid to be left out or looked over. This fear stifles productivity and progression. It creates conformity and homogeneity to the point of regression. Thus, this fear also creates an unhealthy sense of nepotism and quid pro quo."
