    The cunt Freud still can't hold a candle to my installation art. He could live to be a thousand and never produce a work of art that came close to the stuff I knock out every day.

    Not only is he dead, he was a portrait painter who painted many other artists with performance and installation artists appearing among them. Your cryptic attempts at humour are completely lost on me, but I am sure when they are revealed they will turn out to be as fascinating and gripping as the financial graphs that litter your correspondence with Lyle.

    I like his work.
    You did a great job relaying what you saw the way you did.

    I suppose with a gift for words you have dabbled in realist style poetry? Painting a picture or capturing a feeling with words? Not the rhyming type.

    Thanks Andre. No I have not dabbled in any form of poetry, I have written fiction and plenty of lyrics but most of the lyrics are stream of conciousness style things or heavily rhymed Mc'd couplets not considered poems. I felt moved to write about art I guess because I miss making it myself and can't wait to get back to it.

    I'm a virtuoso of the porcelain. I've installed my art in toilet bowls all over the world, and for fucking top money too. After hours of preparation I work with my own organic matter to create majestic tableaux of infinite texture and variety.

    Ha! Genius X

    Bloody Hell time go so quickly. 7 years ago and one of my first attempts at writing about art. Freud was a great place to start and I have still to witness anything approaching his ability and dedication to the craft. The link seems to have broken so here it is again for anyone interested. - http://www.sprawlingonapin.co.uk/201...ay-24-may.html

    "Not shying away from having his cock, balls and ass hole occupying the apex of the picture, Freud tries to look uninterested as if he is the passive model in his painter wife’s portrait. She plays along not engaging the viewer in eye contact, and while her face is bright in contrast with her paint sodden smock, it is Lucien who dominates this composition. He does not exaggerate his boyish arms. From here on in the scale of both paintings and subjects gets ramped up...."


    Holds up pretty well for a novice, but fuck me I lean so heavily on editors I forget how lacking my basic English is at times

    It is arse, not ass. That is my only criticism.
