Jerry, You Bumbling Idiot
I asked Saltz if he knew what a spirit portal was. Also, I asked him not categorize my art as Zombie Formalism. He tweeted me back the following:
2. Do you know what a spirit portal is?
4. Will just say I don't like it.
Hmm... How should I react to that? Jerry Saltz has an ego bigger than the truck he drove before he became an art critic.
The bottom line is this: Jerry "Salty" Saltz has disrespected me, himself, and the entire art world by making glib comments about "Pierre," the only documented Spirit Portal Painting in the world.
But I do have one question for you, Jerry, based on a photo with a comment you made on your Facebook page: Do you spank your monkey thinking about Beyonce?
Maybe you and Scott Indrisek can form a new art critic partnership. You can call it, "Jerry and Son."
Careful, Jerry... Pierre might be after you next.
