  1. Fashion belongs on a coat hanger… yup! Being influenced by the era you live in will give a certain flavour to artistic works, which, when viewed from afar, will become ‘the fashion of the times’ but it’s quite different to be funnelled by the gatekeepers into what sells. Artists should be left to blaze the trail, not forced to follow it 😳

  2. I like too that William Trevor said that… I just read a short story of his about the swinging 70s and it is *so dated*, which is rare for him, he was pretty much a genius. I don’t think he was trying to write fashionably with it, but that story is a case where even unintentionally something you work so hard on can appear to the future to just seem part of a fad.
