  2. /d,

    yeah, it seems as if he fought for his ideas to be accepted. its funny how most wouldn't understand his work. @ one point i didn't but the more i look @ it the more i like it. its kinda like with food. your taste grows. when your a kid you dislike foods then you start to dig them (example: spinach). *off the path ramble

    i know he was a substitute teacher for a while. was probably grinding on his work after work.

    yeah the obelisk is remarkable. i wanna see it one day. i saw a cropped photo of it that looked like the sculpture was a painting. very ill.

    sincerely,

  3. the one that got me going the most was a large red colorfield that was over 20'long and 5' tall....the whole point of the piece was to put your nose up to the piece and feel the color bend around you...depending on where you approached it the stripes would bend too...

    now i am like popeye.
