I’ve been wanting to write about shibui, the Japanese aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty.

But then this article about one of the, if not THE, highest paid artists in the world today comes up on my screen.  This is required reading for all of you who roll your eyes to the ceiling and blow raspberries when you cite Jeff Koons as what’s wrong with the art world today.

I Was Jeff Koons’s Studio Serf, by John Powers, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/19/magazine/i-was-jeff-koonss-studio-serf.html?hpw

Jeff Koons is represented by Gagosian, of course.  http://www.gagosian.com/exhibitions/october-02-2006–jeff-koons

If you are a fan of  Jeff Koons, please introduce yourself.
