Should The Arts Council/Simon Pope Have Their Arses Kicked?

Should The Arts Council/Simon Pope Have Their Arses Kicked?
    I found this unbelievable when I read it this morning. Artist; Simon Pope has been given £50,000.00 from the Arts Council for Wales for his latest work which is, an empty room..!

    Pope claims that his latest work summons up a sensation similar to a form of psychosis when experienced and will work to generate a further understanding of the condition by the public. Read the full article here. He may have made a point he didn't intend to though. When I read this I went ballistic. Isn't that a form of psychosis?

    This really is too much people. Here we are, struggling to eek out a living with hard graft as writers while this bollocks gets paid a bloody fortune for nothing..!

    That's it! I am going to post my latest work directly after this message. I call it 'BLANK' or 'Tiny White Asterix On A Grey Background' to give it its full title. I see it as a representation of 'internal struggle' which I hope will create utter confusion, mayhem and further outbursts of rage in audiences. The intention being that they will scream so loudly at their pc monitors they will be unfit to feel any further anger for ages. Or at least until another over indulged tit like Simon Pope crops up in the newspapers or online.

    Can I get some funding now please?

Masterpiece!

I have to wonder if people in the art council are die hard abstract fans.

Thanks Alan :) It took me ages to paint. I had to capture natural light in a dirty jam jar, let it go off then mouldy, expose it to air and then throw it at a few cops. I think it has caught my intentions perfectly :D ...

Brilliant! :D

I hate it when money is spent on dreary town centre sculptures that nobody likes and do nothing for the place. I love it when money is spent on conceptual works like this.

It gives me hope.

I am being absolutely serious here, folks.
