    I'll go to this. This thread has been a terrible failure.
    I like Paolozzi alozzi.

    I'm constantly in galleries but it's the conservative old stuff for the most part I'm afraid. I went to see some Rodin drawings and statues at the Courtald the other week, and it was brilliant. His statue of Najinsky the Russian ballerina, which looked like a magical spirit, like a ghost mixed with a meaty Michelangelo torso.

    Might go and check out the Hockney wherever that is. I like that he left London to live in a land of sundrenched swimming pools, rather as I've never had the courage to.

    Went to see the Sistine Chapel last weekend so everything else is bound to look a bit shit for a while, I suppose.

    The National Gallery is the best thing about living in London afaic, with the British museum not far behind.

    Do you miss weed when you go to galleries? I don't need to be stoned but sometimes it really kicks things up a notch.

    I hear they've got some pretty edgy stuff at LD50.

    To a degree but at the same time going to galleries and museums can trigger a related state of consciousness anyway. Not the same but similar. Which is partly why I go museums and galleries.

    Fuck Hockney. Just go to the Tate and stare at the Rothkos.

    Think the hockney is at tate Britain. I also think hockney is a better and certainly a more interesting painter. I went to the abstract expressionism show at the RA but as my mate said they really suffer from being all hung up together like a load of laundry on a washing line.

    Jesus no. Hockney is a graphic designer, Rothko is sublime.

    Saw one of his big works in the Pompidou years back. One of the few transcendent experiences Ive ever had in a gallery.

    The early LA stuff has a strong graphic element yes but there's many more strings to his bow than that. He's a great painter too.

    If you prefer the experience of standing in front of a rothko to the experience of standing in front of a hockney well fine, but if you can't see the quality in hockney then probably looking at pictures isn't really your thing. The quality, the technique, the flair, the joy is undeniable.

    Yeah, I like the way he went from doing covers for travel brochures to hipster wine bottle labels.

    I liked the Hockney exhibition a lot. Wasn't fussed about his later stuff done on iPads but the pools and people paintings are fab.

    Obviously the best thing to slag him off for is redoing The Sun logo.

    An open goal that Droid missed - disappointing.
