Turner Round, Bright Eyes….
Posted by cathedralofshit on May 4, 2011
It’s that time again. The 2011 Turner Prize shortlist is upon us and this year’s super-groan is exclusively reserved for Mr George Shaw. It’s not the first time we’ve pointed out he’s made the same painting for the last 15 years, (or is it 150, it sure feels like it). The others, well, actually… not bad?
Our money for an on-the-nose win is on the ever-cool Hilary Lloyd following her Raven Row show, but we may bung a cool fiver each way on Martin Boyce and Karla Black.
We’ve a feeling The Sun’ll love Shaw’s working-class-friendly paintings of council estates, and be a little less enthusiastic about Karla’s giant piles o’ mud.
