For heaven's sake Bart, whoes 'venting' at you!
Why don't you explain your point: how do you define drawing? What do you think drawing is about? How do you define the western drawing tradition (if at all), and how do you compair it with other traditions? This would be interesting!
I think the western drawing tradition is the most interesting one because I think it deals most profoundly with space. This means that the western drawing tradition gives the greatest expressive possibilties.
This is MY VIEW. Having this view I can only feel that Hockney is a jerk.
What is your view? - not what is your view of me for holding the view I do...
But what is your view of DRAWING?
