  3. Very unfair isn’t it, a case of who you know or ‘if your face fits’ i suppose, actual talent doesn’t always seem to come into it.

    You really must open that gallery some day, it would be great to see all your Dada work together in one place where it can be really appreciated by likeminded people—-who needs those ‘stuffed shirts’ at the Tate modern with their narrow minded outlook on art 😀


  4. Who would have thought that bird s**t could make such an interesting triptych, it just shows that something can be made out of even the most unpleasant part of birds or animals! I guess when thinking about Dada nothing should be overlooked or dismissed, as even the most mundane of subjects can become the most fascinating and beautiful when the mind is opened properly to it.

    It’s almost like looking at a view through the Hubble telescope! 😀


    • Surely Mrs B. – if a certain Mr Skull had done this & called it… oh I don’t know.. , “Hubble trouble”, say; those tiresome up-themseves cushy jobs for life Oxbridge toffs @ Tate etc would be queing up to fake orgasms of pseudo intellectual rapture over it.
      ” Just say how big a space you need for your marvellous triptych and we’ll jump, Mr H” :))
