Apple Vs Knox

The first show we went to was at Sue Crockford, where Billy Apple stood at the door guarding the entrance to the group show like a kind of Cerberus with bad frames. Billy had made replicas of his painting that is showing at Michael Lett at the moment out of pvc. Good one Billy!

Later, when we'd arrived at the Seed gallery in Newmarket we were quite drunk. It was John Knox's time to shine. There was a Brando theme running through his work, and like the great journalists we are we queried him on it. He explained that he'd been reading a bit of Oscar Wilde and that he'd constructed a Wilde-like dialogue between two Brando characters. From superman to doctor Moreau. Unfortunately the place was too overcrowded with teenage girls and popstars to hear it, but it was top Knox stuff regardless.

He also said that he only wanted the 2 large Brando paintings in the show, but the gallery had pushed him into putting all this other irrelevant crap on the walls in between. It was nice enough stuff, but it detracted from the very Brandoness of it all.

Bad gallery. Bad.

Zzzzzz. Time for an update. Must be some tragedies on trademe to exploit, at the very least.
