Artist or Serial Killer?

There is a great show called Spicks & Specks. They have a segment Musician or Serial Killer. I could say take a guess but really you already know he would be an artist if  I was posting his picture on my blog. There seems to be a trait that most abstract expressionists seem to have that likens them to serial killers, it is the neat composure they exude before unleashing violent slashes of paint. Here Robert Motherwell looks well groomed, slightly awkward and above the waist spotless. The jeans always give oil painters away. John R Walker revealed himself at the MCA one day -trousers smeared in oil and here Robert Motherwell leaves a hint waistdown of his canvas massacres.
