I remember years ago, mid 70”s when I first saw his work in NYC. I was with a group of fellow students and there was a comment about this work not really being art because it was based on a photo and was “just” photo realism, and this made his work unclear to me.
Since then I have seen a lot of his work and I am very grateful for these opportunities because each time I learn and understand, not only his work, but art, perception, process, and my work.
This documentary brings even more insight.
It is informative and inspiring.
I wish I owned a copy.
