STUDENTS FOR STUCKISM:

"With interest from artists and galleries in Germany, France, Argentina and Australia, plus a student support group at Camberwell School of Art, the movement has definitely struck a chord"

- The Observer (14.5.00)

STATEMENT OF INTENT

As Camberwell art students studying on what primarily is a conceptual course, it is easy to become bogged down in a quagmire of post- modernism, intellectualising bad objects under the pseudo-intellectual guise of satire. We say death to irony. Stuckism has our full attention and admiration.

We now work without the term YBA hanging over us (like a dead horse). We are sincere - none of this pretentious non-art.

We are sensitive, creative people. Why should we be dull, repetitive and mainstream, when there is the opportunity to be brave and original.

One line conceptual 'sculptures' are not only ten a penny but also boring. It seems painting, or more specifically Stuckism, is the avant- garde.

- Katherine Gardner and Susan Finlay

Students for Stuckism:
A Remodernist Painting Show and Talk (24-25 June 2000)

S.F.S.
(Students for Stuckism)

We are a group of art students from the London Institute and University College London. We paint pictures which are shown alongside those of the Stuckists in their exhibitions.

The Stuckists are the 'dirty dozen' of the art world; a group of freedom fighters against the Saatchi machine. Stuckism is the only emerging force against Britart and stagnant conceptualism.

We are spreading the message around London colleges with posters and flyers. We know that there is a huge untapped pool of sympathy for Stuckism lying amongst London's art students, and we realise the importance of their role in the future of art.
