“I like art that combines material acuity with intellectual poignancy. I respond to beauty and poetry at every level, and especially a lyrical appreciation of quotidian existence. While I love and respect academics (as an endangered species), I’m allergic to theory masquerading as art, to undigested data, and any art deriving from the academy.”  Lewis Biggs
