I’ve figured it out!! Recently I came across this self portrait by L S Lowry whose major exhibition at the Tate opens next week.
Then I saw a photograph of Picasso.
Here’s Jason and Adrian (whose performance piece I covered) also from neo:artists
Meanwhile there’s Andy and Martin from Hot Bed Press.
Seven artists who I admire greatly all with one thing in common! I need a cap to make it in the art world! Then, when I am in the same class as these greats and when I have work in an exhibition, as I currently do at Bolton College, I won’t need to seek out a tutor to ask ‘Can my version of Whistler’s Nocturne in Blue and Gold – Battersea Bridge be hung the right way up please?’ If you compare the bottom left of my four pieces with my post A Go At Whistler you’ll see the problem.
One thing I must mention in case it causes any confusion is that my avatar is a print I made a couple of years ago based on a photograph I had taken of a busker in New York’s Central Park. Being a musician, he was an artist too. Could he have won the neo:artsprize? Possibly. If a poem can win then … No, I’ll wait until I write the review before I start on that!
