The work in progress was exactly what modern art should be, it obviously required considerable skill, I was uncertain if it was supposed to be happening or not, I said nothing to the artists and they said nothing to me, I was taking the pictures and they were painting one.
I am afraid to say that the elitist, highly subsidised lot who have put on various exhibitions under the umbrella of The Turner Contemporary recently have a great deal to learn from the whole great wall concept.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Turner would have recognised what is going on here as art, would like everyone else, stopped to watch it happening and gained something from the experience.
The silly walk and some of the other stuff that I have seen in Margate recently I genuinely don’t think he would have recognised as art, this may beg the unanswerable question, what is art?
Perhaps we should approach this in the tradition of the mother of all sciences and ask the question what isn’t art?
