Almost forgot to recount the best quote from the Modernism show at the Nattie Gallery:
“Photography will one day suppress and replace all painting!”
-by contributing photographer John Heartfield (b. Germany but changed his name from Heard in reaction to anti-British sentiment in Germany )
I think he was pre-supposing Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop!
BTW, as I’ve stated here before I LOVE painting! Some of my best friends are painters. And there is NOTHING wrong with painting!
