Artist's description:

Modern Art is Rubbish: Rejects Academy (RA)

Earlier this year, March 2016, I have submitted two works for the “Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016”, works “War on Terror: Liberty’s X Escape by Brooklyn Bridge” and “Disasters of War: Every Tom, Dick and Harry”, both of these works were “Rejected” by the selection committee of the Royal Academy, and was sent a “Rejection” Email, (see work of art)

Although, I don’t know, and will never know, the reason for rejection, maybe due to contravening the “Terms & Conditions” by using copyright infringement, by depicting an “American Flag” in the first work of art, and in the second work by using “Underground” Logo (inverted), or to being inspired by the work of Simon Patterson “The Great Bear”, these maybe perceived as copyright of infringement, allegedly.

Like other Artists before me, such as Claude Monet, John Constable, etc, who have had in sometime in their life’s, had works “Rejected” by the selection committee of the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, I take Great Honour that this is an Artist rite of passage to have your work “Rejected”.

"As an Artist, you must first, Fail to Succeed"

In this work, comprises of three stages, first, original “Rejection” Letter Un-crumpled, second, hand crumpled into A4 format, and third, hand crumpled into a Ball, tossed into the Rubbish Bin (or Trash Bin in USA).

At the time of purchase, please specify the form you would like, Stage 1, Un-crumpled, Stage 2, Crumpled, Stage 3 Crumpled in Ball.

I am proposing to submit the Stage 2, Crumpled to the RA, as Crumpled Ball classified as Sculpture.

All Artworks will be signed and dated from the “Friday 11th March 2016” as per Email, with Fingerprint identification.
