Sorry, I just checked the site & can find no reference to it now. It was there earlier this morning but I guess it has been overtaken by more recent news.
The gist of the argument was that there were artworks displayed on public buildings that were created by people of questionable sexual preference. It was argued that the pieces should be removed due to this. There was a pic of one piece, which was beautifully done but deemed in appropriate for the location due to the artist, I think it may have been on a church.
It's got me thinking, & over & over in my head all I can hear is "Art for arts sake".
I'm on the fence on this one. I'm also thinking of another quote regarding sins & sinners.
Maybe other members have had the chance to read the whole story, I was kinda on the skive at work so it was a quick skim.
I have to say though that one of the most moving & arresting pieces of art I have ever seen waas the picture of Myra Hyndley which was made entirely of childrens handprints. That was a testament to her crimes that spoke more to me than any journalists article. Abhorrent to some, to me it got the point across.
If we were to apply this skewed logic to all painting then there would be many masterpieces in the bin as quite a few artists had rather strange habits. personally I would have one of Hitler's' paintings on my wall if I thought the subject was good enough and some of his work is very good.
