A quick post from me today as I have a load of holiday photos I want to process before tomorrow evening. Firstly, I had a revelation last week when I went to drop off two prints for an exhibition in Manchester. I met the curator of the show and thought to myself “Aha! He’s an artist as he is wearing the Flat Cap of Art!” Then it finally dawned on me! According to artybollocks.com, to be a certified artist one must “at least occasionally produce works of art,” or at least “talk about producing it a lot” or even “going to start it next week”. What I realised was that many of these wearers spend so much time running art galleries, curating exhibitions, sending out mail, chasing cheques, and generally administering to the needs of artists and the art-loving public that they don’t actually have time to produce their own artworks. What I thought was the Flat Cap of Art is, in reality, the Flat Cap of Art Administration!
Secondly, my son sent me the following funny via Facebook. It is from The Meta Picture. I think it’s a gem!
