"Keith Sechrest’s work is so new, so damn fresh, that a human whose life is dedicated to confirming their own soliloquies does not even have the emotional vocabulary to recognize the genius. Very Great Art of course demolishes these closed doors. If their work were in an environment where it could be met on its own terms, then Sechrest becomes one of those artists with enough subtlety and strength to open one’s windows to the new. Still, something as new as their work requires a vanguard to prepare Average Jan to receive it. I want to be that vanguard. And in the hopes of human service, I look for more people to stand with me to support them."
