So glad I saw this show at the Eno. Some of the work made my jaw drop because it was so powerful; all of it was inspirational to this artist. Far too long ago I was one of Mr. Saltzman's students. Looking back on those student years, I believe he was one of two two-dimensional art profs who deserved to be there (granted, there were a couple profs I never had), and in fact were the reason we all enrolled there. His teaching was solid and he worked closely with those who wanted extra help. Yet the clearest picture of him I have in my mind from those days is him brandishing a double-sided razor bade and free-handedly cutting a mat in one swift stroke. The angels are still singing the beauty of that.
How horrible to say these kinds of things about ANY budding artist! Yes, McCrory made yet another awful decision (this one not nearly as damaging as others), but why punish and ridicule Ms. Macon in the process? And why dis indies and others along the way? The writer's superiority/elitist complex is showing.
