most vociferous critics, the rather silly Stuckists, have cornered the
market in Turner criticism. I have some sympathy with their call for
"renewal of spiritual values for art, culture and society to replace
the emptiness of postmodernism". It's just a shame that the alternative
they offer is second-rate figurative painting. Such critics have their
eyes tightly shut to any creative possibilities offered by the best
conceptual art. The argument should not be about form, or the merits
of painting versus conceptual art. Good art, real art, can be any of
these things. What matters is passion and content, and the ideas behind
much conceptual art are all too often intellectually half-baked.
