I don't often comment on art. There's a reason for that. Frankly I know nothing about it. But let me break the habit of a lifetime and say something nice about the Turner Prize winner Richard Wright. He has produced one of the beautiful pieces of art I have seen for a very long time. It may look like anaglypta (sp?) wallpaper made out of gold leaf but I find it hugely impressive.
And the best thing about it is that you'd never guess it had anything to do with the Turner Prize, whose reputation precedes it.
