Ask a question

  • SarahCroft – “As hard as I try, I just cannot bring myself to like contemporary art. Some of it is great, but only the ones that are "traditional". And by that I mean paintings of objects, portraits, landscapes and sculptures. Ie, regular everyday art. But I do not see the attraction in pieces that consist of nothing more than a coat hanger stuck to a dustbin lid. There is no skill involved in that, and that is what I don't like, there has a to be a degree of artistic skill involved, otherwise it is worthless. When I go to the british library, I don't expect to see pieces by an author who can't write. But that is what I see at the tate modern. It is all about "feeling", and involves practically no skill at all. For example, one of the turner prize entrants this year (not actually on display at the tate modern, but similar to the kind of pieces that they show) consists of nothing more than a speaker in an empty room, playing scottish folk ballads. How on earth can that be described as art?”
  • Fish – “I visited this the same day that I visited the magnificent ceiling painted by rubens in banqueting house, and I must say that I much prefer the classical and traditional styles of art. I am not saying there is nothing to enjoy in the modern art galleries, but I don't see the attraction in a pile of everyday objects. For example, in the national gallery you can look at van gogh's "sunflowers", which is a marvelous painting, whereas in the tate modern they would be much more likely to put the actual vase and flowers on display instead. But where is the art in that? I can see Sunflowers whenever I walk into a flower shop. The skill comes in transferring what it looks like to canvas. So, maybe I am just too old to appreciate modern art, but give me a proper painting everday of the week!”

> Craig’s review of Tate Modern – “If you were lousy at school then you did art. If you were lousy at art as well then they sat you down at the back of the class and got you going on some hand prints or potato prints, or those glitter pictures that your mother stuck on the fridge, and told you to make a painting for the Tate. Because that's where the Tate gets all their pictures from. Some people do a… continued”
