Members of the Brit. Anti-art Establishment have awarded Keith Coventry's pathetic daub Spectrum Jesus the £25,000 John Moores Painting Prize. And it has been bought by the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, which is currently exhibiting the shortlisted artists. Groan. The Turin Shroud is more artistic than this codswallop (CLICK). One can't help wondering if awarding the prize to Spectrum Jesus at this time was politically motivated by the Pope's visit to the UK. Coventry admits he isn't religious and that he chose the subject matter because it is "very unfashionable". Oh well, if you can't be original, at least be very unfashionable and get your timing right.
