I stuck my head in there yesterday. Really enjoyed it. Particularly liked the smaller blue painting.

Like this show a lot. Painting is so talked down these days and it is usually by people who tried it, failed and went on the either:
1. Read Marx (misunderstand it) and make parlour games art that try and make art by not making art. They believe they are being radical but are infact the most passe of all artists, you know the types

2. Think by making childish bad paintings they are being radical.

When will these jokers realise that pinning a radical label on themselves doesn't make them radical.

Do painters need a statement about their work? Do I as a painter need to make a statement about what I do. Who cares! Do I need to make a position, is that what painting is these days - having a position.

"My work is about blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

"I believe that painting should deal with blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah "

Give me a show and put me into a symposium and when I get up to the lectern with my bottle of water and say -

"blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah "

"Any questions.....

Marx, well blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah "

Nice to see this shite opps site up and running again.
Now Mr Crosby has been peddling his painting for a few years now and I for one have much time for them.

As we know painting wears it's heart on it's sleeve. The study of aesthetics become redundant. Greenburg's interpretation of Kant is slightly one dimensional and the knock on effect was aethetics becoming associated with the bourgeoise and "taste". WRONG, just plain wrong.
