John Wesley at the Venice Biennale

The NYTimes.com continues to have interesting coverage of the Venice Biennale. This article, John Wesley Has His Art Moment in Venice, is a delightful story of theirs about a painter who defies easy categorization. Indeed, as the article starts:

“For more than 40 years the art world has never known quite what to do with John Wesley”

Critics may ask: is he a pop artist, minimalist, a reinventor of Rococo, or perhaps something else? But when you get right down to it, he is someone who creates “bright, funny” works of art that happen to be great.  Sounds like someone who deserves a spotlight in Venice. If you have a chance, check out the article. Not to mention the other articles they have on the Biennale.
