Galleries now often don't want to show paintings and drawings as being passe and only contemporary art which means hanging used stockings on a stick (installation) or presenting a boring video in a loop. Did you notice that the more boring the photo the larger in size as if size were to compensate for actually saying something or beauty.
Mixed media is the new catch phrase....again usually meaning a few brush strokes on a photo, large of course!
The Turner Prize 2018 was given to a woman who made a "film" on a I Phone, meaning she overlapped some images and recorded some trite thoughts on top about herself of course...blah blah blah....this is the largest prize an artist can get...there are a lot of brilliant movies ...this in comparison is really mickey mouse.
A truly great painting, that is alive (as Van Gogh said a painting should be) that effects you would have been more worthy to receive such a prize...me thinks.
