Most excellent contribution to the dialogue.

On the elephant art discussed:


I talked with Vitaly Komar at a mutual friend’s house one night. He’s serious when he says things like this. “Elephants are much better than human abstract artists. They’re innocent and not corrupted by the art market. The best ones can concentrate all their intellectual power and aesthetic preferences on a single piece.”
