Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane, Quagmire


A room sized drawing of a swamp
These two gentlemen are not going to be as well known as Duchamp.
They should have painted directly on the walls just like En Masse
Drawing on paper, in this case is just kind of crass.

Doing it on a fixed medium
Is just like defeatism.
It’s neither about the process
Nor a metamorphosis.

Just another drawing that’s big
If I spent some time and started to dig
I’m certain I could find something interesting
But to be honest that sort of stuff really isn’t my thing.
