I tried to win the Walters prize once but I lost.

My deepest sympathies Madgie, however on the bright side, you are probably more respected as an artist for not winning it :-)

Thanks MR, yeah I think my idea was too conceptual for them, I think they are more into the bang bang sort of stuff.

I think you can buy one at the $2 shop.

Can you? I never thought of buying my art for a prize, that's almost sustainable. Its a bit like how the real crown is never given away to the winner, it only worn on the occasion as a symbol of status, power and beauty.

If you look at a $2 shop the whole thing looks like a contemporary art show of the likes that get the nod from the Jurors who find artists guilty enough to be included in the Walters prize selections. And the reference to the crown and power and beauty, your right it's just like art prizes more flash than substance in most cases. I'll buy you your very own crown next time I go past one :-)

That's far too classy for the Walters prize Madgie.

What the Martha are you bunch of bananas on about? What the hell have I done SO wrong that you would drag "I" through the mud like this? I am the back bone of this demented outfit! And it is common knowledge that I am probably the most famous of all "New Zealand Nobody Artists"!!! This of course how one of such esteem would be treated!

Quint, it's quiet Quaint that you have such a high-Low opinion of your nonfamy but your name was only mentioned once, don't be so sensitive, it doesn't suit you.

I am in an incredibly good mood, it's funny how everyone else seems so grumpy and a downer from this height!

To me prizes are like all things upon which a value is placed, they have a life cycle attached to them and after a period of time the selection is likely to divorce the function or the function becomes inconsequential. I don't know if this is the case with the Walters prize but I know that planned events, money and populist hype has never been the most accurate indicator toward the art that was consequential in its time.

We can’t agree on everything, but I believe if modern inquisition argues within the boundaries of the imitation of art history ruling over the real world, then the imitation should be the artist or the art, thus not to be believed in like a prize is believed in. A prize buys the illusion that maintains a hierarchy outside of art respectfully, by natural selection.
