Rock wrapping rapture

Christo, the chappy who wraps buildings and Mother Nature up in materials, I always struggled to sell them but they were always interesting! So here we have an Original Welsh Naive piece....' the form and structure of the piece is enhanced by the envelopment of nature itself and of its interaction with the environment that it is placed in' ..........used to sell th'Art........never got found out. Anyway comments would be much appreciated in the style of Brian Sewell, who he, well click this link and practice. Oh by the way things may get ..well worse.....er Mr Rubber Chicken went on holiday with me and he told me he would like to share his adventures...........yep I'll up the meds and see if that helps......

I am impressed! This is a dramatic shot of what could easily have turned out to be a silly exercise. Good idea and stellar execution, as usual!
David Johnson: Knew my Diploma in Home economics and Flower arranging would come in useful sometime......Art, huh, what is it good for......?
That is wonderful and not just because of the great subject matter. I love the vertical composition which really pulls the eye and the gorgeous sky helps to frame the shot.
A true winner.
David Johnson: So shall I put this one in for the Turner Prize instead of Mr Hobbs????, hey you havn't seen rocks wrapped in Blue tarpaulins yet......but don't hold your breath..will post next week!
And the title. I forgot to say I love the title.
David Johnson: Peepol sey eye haff a whey with werdds....
''bo---ck speak'' is such fun!!!!!!! Use it and people might begin to visit your site !!!! er er er looking at the big hole I've just dug for myself.
After seeing this from close quarters I expect that you will now be pretty expert at straightening the douvet. obtw the shot's ok as well. richard ;-).
David Johnson: Duvet...I live up North lad..none of that namby pamby home counties, Ikea, DFS,MFI, Housing Units of Hollywood lifestyle nonsense around here, what what!!!
Great photograph! It really works - the net drags you into it, all the way to the wonderful dramatic sky. (:o)
David Johnson: Well I'll stick another different one up tomorrow then, I was going to stop but it appears my Public needs more of this nonsense...we'll see what happens when the Rubber Chicken turns up.
Bring back Mr Hobbs..
Only joking, I like them all. I also had a look at the link to brian sewell, alot of work for a pic, but interesting results too, so I can see why you were inspired. How long did yours take to prepare??
David Johnson: Off the cuff!!!I feel a montage coming on of this weeks highlights....I'm full of art waffle as I used to purvey Culture to the masses " Yes madam, I'm sure Mr Monet would have used a slightly different shade of blue if he knew it had to match your new living room carpets...."...........( Customer) "Can you give him a call"????.......(Me)"No"
another master piece,keep going.
David Johnson: Think I need a spell on a Chaise Longue, smoking Black cigarillos having Unctions rubbed into me so I can contemplate the deep and lasting impact of my "Sculpture" on the virtual world,I suffer for all these pieces you know.....it takes so much out of me.....
nicely captured. lovely picture.
Umm well it's all a matter of taste dear boy. Oh yes Naive is the word, but then everything outside London is primitive and naive. What a pity the rope was green. After all I am an art expert and I tell you green simply will not do. What would the Queen say?
David Johnson: I think the Spam Bots would interject before she passed comment over this Bill! The can of worms you've prised open about what happens outside London will come back to haunt you...oh yes........indeed.......

I see you've netted your Turner Prize. Another super beach shot - with a difference. Can't wait for the chicken.
David Johnson: Arf, didn't sea that one coming......erm.....Mr C is getting his final polish....

Excellent. Bring out the rubber chicken!
David Johnson: He's on his way....
David, once again what a terrific sky !!!
David Johnson: I thought I'd overdone it, thanks Florence!
This looks pretty good to me but them I'm easily impressed by art world speak! Loved the Brian Sewell link - he's one of my favourites as he's not afraid to speak his mind. I particularly liked the way he said 'piss in the water'!

David Johnson: Brian Sewell a Legend, well he always makes me laugh, the mail bots have chucked this back a few times...??????I know not why
The Title has me in stitches ;o) The peeps are right, you have verbals to make it really big in the art world ;o) However, I am reliably informed that you will never sell any artwork in green, so any thoughts you may have had for upping this and adding it to the 4th plinth (c 2day's Grauniad) in trafalgar square will have to be shelved.

On the upside its a tremendous photograph, well worth the price of entry ;o)
David Johnson: Think if I faffed with the hue /sat anyone would buy it????? It was a b*ggar dragging it up the beach but once it was on top of the Peugeot it was plain sailing back to Mancunia, oh well have to pin all my hopes on Mr Chicken next week!

If the sound was working on this computer I'd be able to emulate Brian Sewell, but as it isn't I'll have to pretend and say that this looks just like a fishing net that's been thrown up by the sea, not really art but it does make for a great picture. wink
David Johnson: Oi I stretched my innermost fibres to deliver this masterpiece to the virtual world......need to lie down and be fanned by flunkies...anyway your spot on ,its a fishing net stretched over rocks,,,,,,
