    Stuff like this bugs me. I know the guy has problems and all but most of us work our asses off to just be where we're at. A guy like this doesn't care about anatomy, his work looking flat, or even the content of his art. Life isn't fair seems pretty true sometimes!

    *Sigh*

    More conceptualization over content. Do that enough times and you can ditch the conceptualization all together and no one notices the difference.

    Don't let it bother you. The Whitney Biennial has about as much relevance to what most of us here do as the Indianapolis 500.
