Art? on Paper Award

David Lock - Portrait (2006) courtesy of FRED!Now here's something for Brits to feel deeply ashamed about: the John Jones Art (alleged) on Paper Award. Look at the winner! This appalling tripe is an example of the Brit. Anti Art Movement at its worst. One of Jane Goodall's chimpanzees could do better. It's clearly designed to set every aesthetic nerve fibre jangling with revulsion. How could any sane person say this horrendous work "demonstrates immense sensitivity"? Ask Kate Jones of John Jones. It's her quote. The selection panel was unanimous in it's choice of David Lock as winner. The list of crass philistines on the panel is: Sir Peter Blake, Danny Rolph, Sacha Craddock and Diana Eccles. (Ms Eccles is Collections Manager for the British Council. We might have known that this waster of tax-payers' money would be involved.) All of you, hang your heads in shame!

It's the model I feel sorry for.

Maybe you should refer the "panel" to a good opthalmologist??

Sounds like a good idea. But of course we don't know for certain that this isn't an excellent likeness of the model. It might even flatter him/her...it!

It isn't always either or. There are folks who are in a third category somewhere in between.

The girls think they have cornered the market on this but we know better.
Stick to your guns Coxsoft you're doing fine.
