« Six hours in the theatre | Main | Surprising art »

June 17, 2007



I've always thought "art" has two components - the idea and the implementation of the idea. These days, there seems to be a proliferation of junk art, mediocre visions and/or minimal craft, particularly anything that wins an award like the Turner prize. Occasionally, you come across something like "The B of the Bang" which makes you go "Wow!" with the vision and technical accomplishment. Or the classics and old masters. Sounds reasonable?
