Playing Silly Burgers
Heaven knows I'm open to Modern Art, but the I'm-an-artist-not-a-photographer Boo Ritson is surely taking the Mickey.
Asked to choose her favourite shot for the Guardian, her choice is a picture of nine cheeseburgers she covered in glue, painted and got someone else to photograph.
And as an example of suffering for her Art, she cites the fact that she is Vegetarian who loves cheeseburgers.
Is there anything here that Andy Warhol didn't do to death in 1960's ?
Still, anyone who wants a picture of painted, gluey junk-food should contact the Alan Cristea Gallery on www.alancristea.com.
Or maybe you'd prefer Stan's contribution to this oeuvre, "Well-dressed Laptop III"
It represents the growing commercialisation of blogging, and full image rights can be yours for a £10 donation to the charity of your choice.
Other works are available from Stan's "Travelodge Period" :-
* Well-dressed Laptop IV
* Well-dressed Television XI
* Well-dressed Kettle LXIX
etc. etc. etc.
Not to mention my latest work, "Badly-dressed Laptop I", which is basically just a picture of a laptop.
