Artist Statement by Cheryl Whitestone

(Left: Bicycle Wheel by Marcel Duchamp)I read Mike Rooney's blog entry "I want to be a sell out" and I was gratified with the knowledge that I am not the only one who hears the pseudo-intellectual chatter and refuses to be persuaded to create yet another assemblage of stuff.
