Pictures at an Exhibition by Roberta Smith

It is clear even before you enter the museum
that they can revive tired colloquialisms
or lean toward obscurity.

Art as a simple physical interaction, and this realization inspired him to write out similar interactions with objects.
His basic unit of visual expression was set: the short, well-shaped phrase that could nonetheless operate on several levels at once — physical, interpersonal,
metaphorical, spatial and even political.
Sometimes there is a strong erotic undercurrent
and, yes, the inspired disturbance of all status quos.

So here we are.
