This is an unofficial Party Political Broadcast by the Conceptual Art Party.
This is a piece of Conceptual Art
This work has been inspired by a previous work, and a more recent tribute to Sir Terry Wogan last week at Westminster Abbey, London.
Previous work: Sketch Project: Blankety _____ https://www.artfinder.com/product/sketch-project-blankety-_____/
Blankety _____ refers to the British comedy game show based on the Australian game show Blankety Blanks (which was in turn based on the American game show Match Game) in which the contestants compete to fill in the Blanks.
As Artists we have periods, when we have 'Off Days', when we not thinking nor making, and have 'Blank thoughts', and look for inspiration from other Artists. Within the piece, I am encouraging audience (contestants) and other Artist to 'Cut & Paste' a piece of art they like, and to fill the Title & Blank space! Or message to the Artist Two Lines of words, max 8 Characters each, to fill in the space, Custom made, and Hand-Made by Artist to order.
Also to highlight, that the Signature of an Artist, is just as valuable, as the work itself. Thus the Artist is questioning, that is the Signature, worth more than the work? Just ironically when the Contestants Win Blankety Blank and receive a 'Blank Checkbook & Pen'. A Blank cheque isn't worth anything until it's been Signed & Dated!
This is also a tribute to the host of the British show Sir Michael "Terry" Wogan (1938-2016) who passed away earlier this year.
The Artist would take a ready-made “Can” remove it’s Label, to reveal the Stainless Steel Can underneath, and re-label with a Satirical character words, to highlight an issue of the day, inspired by satirical & comedy puppet TV series, Newzoids (2015-present) and previously Spitting Image (1984-1996) on UK Television.
This artwork has been inspired by the previous works in the “Back to Basics: Cans” series of works, and the previous work “Back to Basic: Anti Consumerism Cans (2009)” (see last image and link below)
