On Tuesday I went to The Tate Modern again and again I went with someone so I couldn’t enjoy it as much as I would have liked.
Anyway, they have an Urban Art exhibition on the outside walls, which was amazing. I was wondering how they got them up there because they are so big.
But as you see they did look great.
Evry time I go to The Tate I see something I didn’t see the last time and so far I have only managed to visit one floor. I am really looking forward to the Rothko exhibition in September though. Unfortunately, they had taken all the Rothko paintings away for the exhibition and replaced them with some rubbish that I really didn’t understand. Plus the fact that I went with someone who really wasn’t interested in art at all, so that made it even more difficult, but nevertheless I enjoyed almost everything and I kind of switch off anyway when I am looking at this.
As usual I spent a long time enjoying the Pollocks’ namely Birth and Summertime.
Yesterday, I joined in my first group exhibition with the local artists society, but I think my work was a little too contemporary for the crowd there. One of the participants asked me ‘How long did it take you to do?’. I answered but I thought about the question afterwards and thought what a stupid question. Who cares? If you like something do you think about how long it took to paint?
She also said it was too expensive and by this time I was getting rather pissed in both the English and the American sense, and I just told her that the frame cost more than most of the paintings there. After that I made my exit.
