Review of Grayson Perry's latest show... ouch!

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/sep/27/grayson-perry-super-rich-in

Jones is a bit of a knob at the best of times, but he's got some good points here.

Without commenting on Perry's work personally, I'm surprised Jones was able to see enough of his keyboard to type that review, what with Damien Hirst's winkle lodged firmly in his mouth.

We all love it, brother. Some may say they don't, but it's one of life's sweetest pleasures.

I was planning to go to that exhibition. Went to see Yayoi Kusama there last year and it was decent for a small gallery.

Of course, Jones has no axe to grind here (wikipedia):

"Jones has also engaged in a long-running feud with the potter Grayson Perry, which began in 2001 with his review of the exhibition New Labour at the Saatchi Gallery, entitled "If I had a hammer...", assumedly in reference to Perry's work. The review of the group show opens with 3 paragraphs deriding Perry's pottery, recommending "Smash them and bury the pieces". Later, he states outright that Perry is "a terrible artist".

Pinch of salt required I feel.

“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

And in reference to his comments regarding Terry Pratchett I would venture that Jones is a complete knob who can feck right off.

The type who will purchase Perry's work will buy it for its novelty as much as anything else and probably won't give a toss if it's worth anything in 20 years time, or have expectations either way.

His dissection and angry rant actually legitimises the art. Art is meant to inflame - so he's an idiot.

His review should've been two words: Utter sh!te.

This reminds me of the one when Rachel dates Bruce Willis's character.

He's got a point, though. A lot of Perry's work is trite and childish, and isn't really of much 'fine art' value.

Appreciate the aesthetics and shallow politics, sure, but it won't be of any interest in 20 years' time.

Yes, quite. In my opinion it is an example of trying too hard to be something it isn't... Art. I long for the day that people can enjoy art for its raw beauty instead of having to 'wheres wally' a meaning or message. I'm sure there will be some interesting pieces on show, but I certainly won't be buying any this time.

Same same. The last piece I picked up is called 'Two Eggs in a Nest', a watercolour by Glenda Hazelwood. I had to shell out quite a bit for that but it's a cracker. Hopefully it will greatly appreciate in value after being incubated down in my walk-in humidor.

I will take your word for it. Sadly I have seen your idea of art when you took us to that open mic night. Not saying that you were bad, I just didn't understand what was funny about any of the acts, it was all a bit too self indulged and forced cleverness for my taste.

Londoners don't like Jethro jokes, what a surprise. Probably not 'politically correct' enough for 'em. And the hecklers didn't help matters.

Still, I got my fiver from the jar whip around so all's well.

You always say that, but that fiver was an expired TopShop voucher and you know it.
