Then, since this thread is about Abcrit picks, mine might be the Alan Gouk essay, “Proper to Sculpture.” It wasn’t published at Abstract Critical, but that’s where I first heard about it. I’ve been able to get back issues of Artscribe via the internet. I’ve passed Xeroxes of the essay on to a couple of smart–even “figurative”–people: they were just as excited about it as I was. Point is: while I don’t really mind and even take some interest in Robert Gober, Chris Ofili/the sculptors and painters of “the moment”–Abcrit offered and might continue to offer more.

Nor (of course) does it feature in Painter’s Table’s tribute: http://painters-table.com/blog/abstract-critical-round-up#.VFNeDGe6ixl

Oh well… better make sure we get on to it in the new forthcoming Abcrit site…

Well, we decided to take the massive bribe to close down offered by FAAART (Figurative Artists Against Abstract Art)

I will miss its serious dedication to all it has covered.

I hope someone will start up another one very soon but appreciate that it is masses of hard work and dedication.
A special thanks to Sam for posting my reviews and for some useful editing – it has been an invaluable opportunity.
I still look forward to reading all the things I have missed…and still worry that I never added anything to the ‘grids’ debate … and still anticipating a reply re the Moss ‘conversation’….? they will have to carry on floating…!
