A must read post from Mario Naves begins: "it’s been a while since Cézanne and, for that matter, modernism have excited me... I’m beholden to modernist precedent. But what’s excited me the past few years isn’t modern at all. It’s newer than all that." Naves' point is serious, it's easy for an artist's historical canon to become too narrow. He highlights "forever contemporary" artists such as Memling as well as artists today whose work engages in dialogues outside modernism.
