Moleskine vs. fine art

Djt"I had a debate with a fellow artist this weekend. I’ve decided to start
using moleskines a la journals/graphic scores/art books as my artwork
to start showing in galleries and he’s under the assumption that
journals and sketchbooks are not finished artwork. I create real
minimal art pieces and I like to work small and in this way I’m working
small and my studio is portable.

Age old debate, what is everyone else’s thoughts on this?

I select moleskines for their durability, small size, and acid free paper over every other journal/sketchbook."
