Now for Real Art
I recently visited Spectrum London's website in search of two new exhibitions, one by The Stuckists, the other by Cheryl Brooks, who strips backgrounds from Renaissance paintings and overlays a figure cut from a photo. The amateurs in the Worth1000 art competitions are vastly more skilful at this sort of thing than she is. And I couldn't find enough works by The Stuckists to make a judgement. So I browsed and found two superb artists from past exhibitions: Andrei Zadorine and Peter Sorrell. Sorrell's nude is one of the best I've seen by a living artist, and I enjoyed his poetic title:
When all hope is gone
I think of you with no clothes on.
His metre is a bit dodgy, but I know the feeling. Click the title link to view an online gallery of works by these two artists.
