Prophet of Horn

Went to the Anish Kapoor exhibition in London...visual innuendo taken to new heights. Highlights include an enormous hour-long act of penetration extending through five rooms of the Royal Academy; mounds of flaccid willies and concrete turds coiling and squirming, and a phallic cannon that fires shells of congealed menstrual blood against the walls. The artist deflects our gaze with a series of hallmark stainless steel distorting mirrors. Great fun.
Remind me to take the kids this weekend.
I painted this picture on my return home.
Acrylic on canvas 25cm x 30cm. Click to enlarge.

I believe! I am a blind and brainless seeker too! And slightly pinkish, just like yer wans in the picture there. And I'm dead impressed by hats. Where should I go to worship that Hatted Thing? O Hatted Thing! Show me the way.

Been wanting to go and see that. Bet he can give even you a run for her phallic-money.

I saw pictures of his work jumping from one link to another. Though it is interesting to see how he works with space I must admit the cannon thing is slightly ... erm.... disturbing.
Like the illustration though:)
