Mummy, I could have done that







Peter and Jane go to a modern art gallery.

In one room there is an old master that has been defaced with a giant penis; in another a canvas scrawled with the words ‘Why did you f**k me and leave???’ hangs on the wall; in another there is nothing at all. “There is nothing in the room because God is dead”, says mummy. “Oh dear,” says Peter. - - The Independent

Fabulous. I dare not send it to my niece the gallerina.

I need to make a copy of this and leave it in the study room at PAFA.

Excellent and oh, so, true. Sadly, though.

I'm so happy that the era of Post Modernism is dead and gone. But, it'd be nice if people would learn the difference between that movement, and the Modern movement, which was a positive and hopeful one.

Carry on.

There's always "The Painted Word" by Tom Wolfe.... That explains it pretty well...
