Re: Favourite Contemporary Artists

consider that being contempory and being simply "still alive" are not the same. There are artists who produced great work and impacted art history still working but may not be presently relevent. then there are those long dead
that guide the minds and hands of up and coming artists continually. And throughout our own careers we continue to be inspired by some of what we see whether we encounter it in a cutting edge gallery or in the dusty pages of an old art journal. I suppose its important to seek these visual experiences out and share them in conversation. Also, much like ones taste in music, it is always exciting to encounter something new but, of course you will always still like The Beatles. Steve Tobin has been doing some very interesting things over the past ten years but I learn from David Smith almost every day. Did anyone mention Richard Stanckiewitz (certainly mispelled)?
