Scott exhibition at Jerwood in Hastings and would agree entirely with Ben Wiedel-Kaufmann’s critique. Whilst, I enjoy many of Scott’s paintings I do not think he merits the enormous exposure he is receiving this year. Unlike some of his influences such as DeStael or Tapies, who in my opinion are much more original as well as exciting visually. By the way, if anybody wants to see more De Stael without travelling as far as America, the Musee Picasso in Antibes have a wonderful collection of De Stael’s work. A fabulous little museum by the market, perched on rocks overlooking the azure blue of the Mediterranean.

But that’s just my opinion, and what you have written is yours. The way I see it, you could either not bother visiting this site, because, hey! – it’s full of writing; or you could write something yourself that you think is more illuminating. How about it?

The result is a long whinge like this, full of pseudo-arguments to back what are simply opinions, a matter of taste.
The only real ideas in the piece revolve around questions of the Artists intentions, a subject as interesting as the artists materials, the identity of the models or the weather when he was painting.

Between us we seem to have a bit of a downer on Scott. There is a much more positive review of the Wakefield show by Andy Parkinson here:
