I like the return to a fewer # of artists. Hopefully this will result in the dual shows that we saw for each artist in issue #'s 3, 2, 1.
Dual shows gave artists a lot more traction and huge group shows tend to anonymize artists. Im a firm believer that if an artist is worth highlighting they are worth highlighting in a way that allows people to gage their depth. 2 pieces is too few to do that.
Also, Victor is a very good artist himself.
