cmSA; i learned in art school oil painting class that painting could be anything and be done any way i fact , you didn' t have to paint in painting class at all; you could do a performance, or an installation, or a sound piece instead, in fact in my painting class these were considered the finest examples of "painting" during class crits..i think that that was when we lost the idea that painting is (among many other things!!!!!!!!) a craft that one might learn and that the practice of over many years might perfect. i have felt at odds with the status quo of the contemporary art world my whole professional life...that's why i *sigh*..
