Actually it was really enjoyable, though I'm not sure my opinion has shifted enormously, and if it's moved much at all it's only because I've seen this show of his work, which I find always gives me the hint of a sense of ownership. It's now slightly mine and I feel a sort of loyalty to it. Odd but true. Anyway, the show was more or less what I expected but more fun. There were works that fell into the 'expected' category
Then there were heads based on portraits, with all the shading coloured in without the need for light (I quite liked that),
plenty of neon (or maybe just light) and movement
Most of the rest of the week's art was because Fringe Arts Bath was on. After a while the slightly calcified sponge that is my brain decided that it was full and that any further art was just going to flow straight off because there was nowhere left for it to soak in to, but I'd seen quite a lot by then. I'll save that for next time. To finish off for now, here's the Holburne, front and back, with more Julian Opie on show. The museum had to fight hard to get its extension, but it changed it from quite a nice Georgian building mostly full of, um, decorative clutter (interesting decorative clutter, but nevertheless) to somewhere far more interesting both inside and out.
