Brit art

June 25 2012

Three things I’d have painted if I had been a British artist in the ’70s and ’80s:

The Queen sitting on what we take to be the throne. Crushed Ribena carton on ground in front of it. Style of Lucian Freud.

R Vaughan Williams besuited surrounded by a couple of hundred shirtless dancers: Vaughan Williams in Heaven.

Magnetic tape tangled up in a tree.

    BP Portrait exhibition, National Portrait Gallery, July 4: the modern British portrait is essentially the portrait of a hangover.
