    if i'm right in inferring that somehow the style of frank's work is offensive i ask you to consider intolerance this evening when you wash your face before bedtime. living here in los angeles for 20 years, in a place not so nearly chockablock with history and its buildings (and the stone!) of jerusalem, its been very enjoyable to note that the very haphazardness one could rue has created an opportunity for frank (and a gaggle of others here) to explore what i'd call (in light of these religious intonations) non-sectarian form-making. i can't help but believe you embed a sense of "appropriateness" in your critique which if further plumbed would result in a certain "style" (backed by and derived from specific politics) which we could then debate. the myth that frank is somehow involved in site selection (and a forthright desire to build on top of someone else's graves) should be immediately dispelled. certainly the protective exterior/warm interior dichotomy, the sense of narrative, the poetry of Frank's work could be categorized as Jew-ish, but i think we could all be a bit more generous with our common sense of delight. the notion that he's somehow purposefully inflammatory i think is very unfortunate.
