7.5.08 Letter from my sister:

Hey Kev,
Check out the link below. I knew Chuck Connelly from Tyler... one of my insane hard drinking friends who later gained some fame in the 80's for both his art and notoriously bad public behavior. One of the last times I saw him was shortly after grandma and John were murdered. I was at a bar on 1st St and 1st Ave ( the same place I took you and Van to years ago) and Chuck embraced me screaming how he wished he could experience a slaughter in his life to bring that emotion into his art. Several months later, I went to a big opening of his and sure enough there was a big gory massacre painting.
This video, "The art of failure" is a documentary of Chuck's fall into obscurity. Though extremely talented, he could never conform to the business side of the art world.... basically causing the most influential collectors, art dealers, and galleries to avoid him.
Anyway, this site has a few video interviews with him and a link to his web site too. Thought I'd share it with you because Chuck really is the kind of artist and man you'd no doubt relate to on a variety of levels. Hope I pasted the link in correctly.
Love you, Kath
