RIP Richard Berger.
He died earlier this year. I only found out recently. A very influential professor and Oakland artist. I will miss your bad boy approach to the art world and will miss your profound poetics in your work. His approach to the history of sculpture navigated my flickering ideas of history.
Richard, you didn't know how influential you were to me. I told myself I would visit you before you passed. Some how I knew it was approaching. It hurts me to not have seen you, one last time. To engage you in your philosophical thoughts, listen to your stories. Wished to share the new Ideas I had. I find happiness in knowing you and being your extension of thought.
