Letting sad, rejected old art live is the motivation behind MORCSA. Whether it's a crappy Monet print, a bland Gainsborough in a plastic frame or a shiny Picasso with vinyl sheen, it can all be painted over with exciting scenes from every day life such as tower blocks, old people and dodgy pubs. Somebody recently said said that I was “enobling” these old pictures by painting over them.
Ha ha. Yes!
That said, in recent years I’ve started to grow fond of the rubbish art I find in charity shops, to the point at which I am now no longer sure whether my gritty urban-expressionist splatters are any better than the sentimentalised kitten pictures or soft-focus nature scenes in the frame.
