To Willey Hall painters

I write because I believe some congratulations are in order. You have very effectively and very cheaply destroyed one of the West BankâÄôs finest buildings: kudos. I am most impressed by your ability to rob the building of its gracefully executed, cool warmth, leaving the hall looking as though its liver has begun to shut down while freezing to death. Your inspired color pallet of custard yellow and chalk blue is immeasurably better than the rich, textured cement they replace, conjuring images of hospital beds and prison cafeterias rather than the simple elegance of a city street after a spring rain. And we must not forget the awkward transitions of paint, where jaundice seems to arbitrarily meet hypothermia, for those thoughtful details will certainly be remembered as one of the more refined hallmarks of this project.
