In my letter July 7, I did not dismiss Lee's work. I described it as a product of his time and place, limited and parochial, and so it is to me.
As for immaturity, are there any real artists whose early work is of the same quality as the creations of their mature years? Would there be any artists if there were no growth?
I question Ruby Bell-Gam's use of the phrase "contemporary white artists." When she inserts the word white , she introduces the irrelevant. I am hoping that Lee's goal is to be an artist, neither white nor black. An artist is an artist is an artist.
