    Default UOB painting of the year

    https://sg.news.yahoo.com/blogs/what...083941742.html

    Not to take anything away from the winner but think I'll send in a black board next year. Heck, I'll do better...... I'll send in a black board with doodles by a 3-year old.

    Ah sorry mate. I will go one better. I send in a primed canvas and it shall be called WIP. I already have the synopsis. It is likened to life. It's a constantly evolving and ongoing piece of work bla bla bla.

    Got the digital version of it. It's called: Lens cap still on.

    "According to Channel NewsAsia, Singapore-based Korean artist Om Mee Ai was behind the artwork, which is made using oil on canvas, consisting of "57 layers of colour" although it appears like a big black square."

    And garment is questioning why productivity is so low.

    I think it's normal to be speechless.

    Is there anything to talk about to begin with?

    Wait a minute. We are here talking about absolutely nothing!

    it not the artist's fault.

    the camera sensor is not good enough to capture "57 layers of colour".

    well... the artist wasn't satisfied with 50 shades of grey...

    so she did 57 shades of black

    I am not defending anyone but I agree: paintings (can) have textures and other 3-D effect (for example, differences in hue and color when viewed from different angle) that a photograph cannot reveal. Best to see for oneself the real thing.
