GALLERY 23: Private View - Guinness

"Where texture and grunge is often borrowed and imposed on spots to fake integrity or to mask the absence of an idea, here it is real and found. The spot touches on a patriotic nerve and sets it thrumming. Its honesty barely conceals a natural modesty and although it has no spin, no twist, no audacious premise, to my mind (and my heart), it stays with me far longer than the varnished frippery for which we mistakingly strive in the hope these attempts will garner some international recognition."
