Reader: Interviews with blowhard artists make me want to hurt myself

It took 1,600 hours and 10,000 pounds of marble for Colorado artist Francisco Sotomayor to create "American Woman," a monumental sculpture.

Reviews are mixed -- both of the piece, and of our recent interview with Sotomayer.

Says PalmalaHanderson:

I do like the nipples. . .

But listening to or reading interviews with blowhard artists going on about their bullshit makes me want to put a pencil through my eyes/ears.

But nipples . . .mmmmmm.

What do you think of Francisco's Sotomayor's "American Woman"? Or his Q&A?
