Today it is not the audience, the galleries, or the funders who are the problem in modern art, it is the artists. Stephen Farthing, an artist writing from an artist's perspective, argues that his profession is an organism under constant attack from itself. It creates both stunning works and crass tabloid pieces that pander to the media. In this book, Farthing takes a critical look at his colleagues, offering a radical new approach to art which shuns art historians, connoisseurs and postmodernism. Taking the reader from Eric Gill to Damien Hirst, and from Goering in Nazi German to Saatchi in 1999, he paints a picture of modern art as artists see it---In this book, Farthing takes a critical look at his colleagues, offering a radical new approach to art which shuns art historians, connoisseurs and postmodernism.an art for everyone to enjoy.
