Beauty in the beholder's eye comparable to Concept Art in the beholder's mind (where music lies - and if not there, then it's a fig). Ergo: The Beatles and Sex Pistols have been of greater influence more relevance than - shall I say? - Picasso or his ilk. Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box and if I say this ice cube is a sycamore... if I convince you - in your mind, that is - That's concept art - in the beholder's mind is where it's at. Forget the artefact, the magic isn't there. While my guitar gently weeps seemed more relevant than Pablo's Old Guitarist Within you, without you says it all for me. Don't show me works of art. Most people could make most of them. I don't believe in genius, don't need to. I believe in freedom. I am not top notch at drawing... Ergo: I don't draw. If not the best, then find another way.
Is this a found poem? I don't know. The thoughts came largely from A Sky interview in the "In Confidence" series. The opinions are almost entirely those of Damien Hurst, but they are not direct quotes.
