“I believe that it is the loss of faith in our emotional side (actually suppression of it) and over-dependence on the intellect that caused the downfall of Modernism and growth of Post Modernism. Today’s criticism has less to do with the form (i.e., figurative v. abstract) than whether the image speaks from and to the heart and soul.”  J. A. Rist
