Jerwood Rubbish

Maria Glyka - Er...Cardboard Box?Just to prove Coxsoft Art's point that art graduates have the cheek to churn out any rubbish their meagre talent suggests to them, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation presents its 30 prize-winning Jerwood Contemporary Painters at Jerwood Space, Union Street, London, SE1, beginning tomorrow and ending on 31 March 2007. Each of these pathetic, no-talent graduates won £1000. Maria Glyka's cardboard box is about as good as it gets! If you don't believe me, click the title link. Is it any wonder that we tend to give "contemporary art" the raspberry? The problem is we have too many art colleges and not enough talented students to fill them. At a time when my cash-strapped local hospital is threatened with closure, I am furious that public money is wasted on trash like this.

Exactly what public money was wasted on this? It's totally funded by a Charitable Foundation. It's free for people to visit and they've also done some pretty good free events.

The Charitable Foundation didn't pay to send these untalented people to art school. That's the waste of public money I'm referring to. It is a disgrace that people without any artistic talent are allowed into art schools and an even bigger disgrace that they are allowed to graduate. The tax-payer subsidizes their "education" and gets rubbish in return, judging by this exhibition.
