COMMODITIZATION OF ART
In a recent New Yorker article by Calvin Tomkins there was a discussion about the "commoditization of art". It was in an article about the new Metropolitan Museum of Art modern art wing which is actually another building. MOMA has a new building opening in March 2016. The Met has MOMA's old building for an expanded Met modern art department.
This is a detail from one of my small paintings. It is paint. Washes, fat paint, glazes, and changes.

I know I am contemporary. I am alive now. I may not be "modern".
