    Unless there’s a hidden graffiti cock, some dodgy spelling, or an ironic AM radio joke that I’m missing, congratulations on taking a few days to run TWOP into the fucking ground.

    I’ll be back when TLA is back.

    PS, you’re a cunt.

          No back story as far as I’m concerned Shazzanator, except if you question whether any “gallery” manager who posts a series of cretinous comments such as these, and who runs such an equally cretinous “gallery” as xxxxxxxxxxxx, is qualified to dispense advice on matters of taste and the like. He can shove a tiki up his smug hipster asshole as far as I’m concerned, and preferably one in his mouth too.

              So let me get this right. Only those who work in the arts are qualified to comment on matters of taste? Why would this be so when you have argued at length that art requires no analysis at all?

              Additionally, you’re concerned about xxxxxxx being mentioned on this blog when you were more or less bursting out of your skin to advertise it here. OK.

              I agree, however that your boss may not wish to have his or her business associated with the inanities you have so far sprouted here. So fair call on the XX.

              Sorry: the O is no go…it’s a low blow I know, but there you go…

                Can we visit this gallery beginning with the 15th letter, take a coupla snaps and post it as a ‘worst’ now?

                Seems pretty much fair game “in the publish anything school” direction this blog has taken.

                  I removed any link to my “blog” as the suspicious type’s on here seem to think its some kind of marketing strategy. No, its not a strategy. I don’t want any more publicity. I’m done with that blog. It’s done. Over. No more posts.

                  Please, feel free to take snaps of the window display to be used as a “worst”. Keep in mind, my comments dont reflect the owners opinion, I have no vested interest apart from a weekly salary (no commission).

                  Orbea, you haven’t visited the gallery?

                  TLA has, recently, he thinks it’s great. I will try hard to come up with a worst, but it will be hard with all the great stuff we have here.

                  But, I agree : COCO/DC – PLEASE remove any mention of the gallery in the other thread that Natalia Fan linked to, again xxxx’s are fine.

                  Fortunately, I have not used my wordpress account to log in here.

                  So, in the interests of public safety, this will be NVL’s last post, as NVL.

              Freelance cunt.

              What qualifies you comment on how my place of work has questionable matters of taste?
              Two eyes and half a brain.

              Do you work in the arts?
              No. Some might ask whether you do.

              Have you visited the gallery?
              Yes.

              Would you be prepared to say any of that to my face?
              Of course.

      For once I had better things to do and sadly missed the party yesterday. While my higher self says that NVL should be left to dig his own pit of ignominy, and that much of what needed to be said has in any case been said by abler commentators than myself, my baser part cannot resist making the following observations:

      (1) Yes, for various reasons I dislike the vapidity, homogeneity, and other aspects of XXXXX’s signature design style. While I am not unhappy to admit this as a matter of personal opinion, neither am I a relativist who backs away from the simple fact that statements of personal preference (“I dislike x”) inevitably harbour universal claims (“X is ‘bad.'”) The prevalent notion that everything is simply “just a matter of opinion,” which I suspect would be NVL’s last ditch defence, does much to cover over the far more rewarding possibility of genuine disagreement.

      (2) I’m not sure why art-critical statements, including the names of their targets, should be censored. After all, art critics make such claims all the time, albeit in a less directly vituperative manner. For example, while I’m no professional critic, let’s consider some of the design work of Matte Stephens, an XXXXXX favourite. It’s a triumph of style over substance. Stephens makes every cityscape he paints a uniform exercise in 50s-retro-cutesy Klee-esque whimsy, regardless of context. It might work for New York – there seems a natural, historically sanctioned fit between style and subject in that case – but Sydney? Perth? Stephen’s approach is somewhat analogous to the colonial landscape painters who couldn’t help but render the Australian landscape in European terms, except that Stephens could help it if not for his wilful, culturally and artistically insensitive opportunism. Perhaps I was wrong to label such art or its perpetrators and handlers “cretinous” – cynical more like it – yet it is difficult for me not to see its buyers as anything but. I’m not denying anyone their “right” to meaningless, apolitical nostalgia, but please don’t dress it up as otherwise.

          I was trying to be more polite JJ, and to demonstrate, however much I think it’s horse balls, that I’m capable of expressing my distaste in a slightly more nuanced fashion than earlier efforts might suggest. Anyway, I’ve no doubt succeeded in coming over like the cunt I am once again, only in a different register.
