Arterms is a word I made up and used for a blog for a short time years ago. It’s a contraction of the name of a formative book, Fairfield Porter’s Art in its Own Terms.

My name is Dmitry Samarov. I’m from the Evil Empire but paint and write in Chicago, Illinois now.

This newsletter is about what I’m working on, listening to, watching and reading.

A free subscription gives you a newsletter every Monday morning; a paid one includes one or two additional letters each week.

If you don’t know my work, this is the place to start.
