Get Underground hace a nice interview with Monte Beauchamp, whose BLAB! remains an influential compendium of all things cool and suureal:
MATT: What draws you to certain artists and what tends to push you away from others?
MONTE: Itâs the firefly effect. Iâm drawn to work that generates
ORIGINAL light. I like imagery by artists who have gone through ârite of passage,â? so to speak; people who have done a forensic accounting on their inner selves, and have come to terms with it — for better or for worse… people that create a visual resonance that vibrates within a society. BLAB! has no use for the corporate âfast-foodâ? art that now permeates ninety per cent of the pages of ninety per cent of the magazines.
