Fuckers. Yet again, my artwork which I sweated and fretted about for months have been rejected again. Why? It's a heartfelt and genuine artwork. Why don't they like me? It's a good painting. I'm a pretty decent artist...aren't I....aren't I?

I have to say, I don't think sending pictures of your foof to the RA is going to win you any favours with anyone.

I don't know Black Ship, obviously I'm very sorry that you didn't get hung but fuck it, Art is about the artist communicating - if you're  happy with the thing you made, fuck the world and keep on making stuff that means something to you.  Recognition is nice but that's all it is, it has nothing to do with the value of your work.

Can an image of said artwork be provided in this very thread, we could offer some critique as to why it might not have made the cut.

But it has everything to do with my value as a person.

I would have used this opportunity to tell all my nay-sayers to SUCK IT. Everyone who ever rejected me or made me feel bad would have to eat some hefty pie.

Plus rep is an aphrodisiac. I hang one painting in a reputable art exhibition and the men will flock to kiss my feet. I won't have to try so hard to be loved.

Fuck 'em.

Strong composition, intriguing colour pallet, juxtaposed sense of motion and stillness.... It's pretty damn good.

I know fuck-all.  It makes me think a bit of Chagall.  I think you need more anger, less diffidence but what the fuck do I know, I know what means owt to me is all.

That's a wonderfully expressive piece IMHO, Black Ship. Fuck them Royal Academy bastards.

Sorry Black Ship, I feel your pain. A few years back I spent weeks making a manuscript miniature painting, endless and incredibly tedious, painstaking work. The miniaturists wouldn't accept it for exhibition because it was too big (7"x5") and the watercolourists wouldn't take it because it was painted on vellum and that would be the end of civilisation as we know it. Then turned down by the RA for the hat-trick. It's now propped against the wall gathering dust.

Grayson Perry is coordinating this year and I would have thought this would be right up his street. Which stage did you get to, physical or digital?

I'm entering next year for a laff.

Ah yes, quite, the expressionistic use of vivid colour and the subject hints at the work of Chagall, whose work one witnessed when holidaying in the Côte d'Azur pissed off one's tits...



I am skint, so an offer of spondoolies ain't forthcoming but I'll, like the work of Marc Chagall, look at it tipsy if you like?

Digital. If it had been physical i would have had a chance to at least exhibit. And that would have been all tht mattered.
