Extraordinary show. That tanned antiques guy wept when he saw one of the portaits. Three portait painters paint a portait of a "star" with a five hour live sitting followed by two weeks in the studio. The star then chooses their favourite to keep and the remainders are exhibited in Walsall Art Gallery.
Amazing concept. Simultaneously makes you realise the great power of painting, and is the end point (the final degradation) of all art. From this moment we are dead or free.[_shared_elements/comment_on_this_review.htm]
