Hirst and Bacon

Damien Hirst - Like Flies Brushed Off a Wall We Fall (2006) middle of 3
And now for the serious stuff. This week the Gagosian Gallery in London opened a pair of exhibitions featuring two of the UK's leading exponents of Anti Art: "Moneybags" Damien Hirst and deceased Francis Bacon. The theme common to both exhibitions is triptychs. The word "triptych" describes an altarpiece with three pictures or carved panels joined by hinges. In this case it's merely a pretentious term for three bad pictures in a row. This boring nonsense continues until 4 August 2006. Don't bother.

Egg and bacon for me!

Much better, though a bit heavy on the saturated fats. Did you visit the Gagosian Gallery website? See what I mean about the arts establishment being paranoid about appearing chocolate-boxy? Grim site!
