Is this a good thing? Absolutely. This is a great thing. We are learning a skill set we would never learn in a good art market. In the process, we are creating some of the best art work in the last 30 years. As the economy recovers, I predict this next generation of art will be fantastic and will create entirely new movements. This creativity is derived from innovation rather than the need to repeat success. I know it is tough now but things will change for the better. [...]
