Review

Here are paintings done with freedom. Collage, and abstract and figures sometimes, and wall hangings. Light hearted, fun, colourful, seemingly careless. Look closer! The spot painting is dull. The butterfly hanging is not much. The crusty over painting is just crusty, without life. The colours don't hum. Bad paintings is great. Dumb can be good too. But after the happiness of seeing some loose paintings has worn off, once you look closer, there's a problem with Mr Rs international irony. The paintings he makes aren't very good.
