You gotta do what you should…

 

If ever there were two images that show all the things that are wrong with modern art these are they.   This has nothing to do with the with the paintings them self as they some of the most powerful and beautiful works of art that have been produced by one of the greats of modern British art Jenny Saville.   No instead it is to do with the way that how art is now exploited by the mega galleries.  I have nothing wrong with talented people making a lot of money but there reaches a point where a limited edition digital print of the art works is being sold for £999.00 a pop.   Now I really admire Saville’s work but I really don’t think her signature is really worth that price.   Both of these images were made for far less and have as much artristic value as the digital prints of Saville’s work.   But then again I’m not represented by one of the largest galleries in the world.

Here ends the moan.
