Dear 47:

Andrea Carson responded to our comments from yesterday. While we may not agree with the assessment of the exhibition, we were pleased that the dialogue is open and fair. It reads:

Dear 47,
Of course I wouldn’t delete your comment. It’s my opinion - everyone is entitled to their opinion. There are many ways of looking at this piece, and of appreciating it. Do not think that my opinion is not grounded or informed. It is based on over a decade of looking at, studying and critiquing art and expecting certain things from an artwork, which in this case, I feel were lacking.
I’m happy to continue the dialogue - especially if you can change my mind about the piece.
All best,
AC

*Update: As mentioned, we invited Andrea back to the gallery for a chat, as of yet we have had no such visit. We miss you Andrea.
