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.
This is piece of Conceptual Art. 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.
Also to highlight, that the Signature of an Artist, is just as valuable, as the work itself, and has been Signed and Dated by the Artist. 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'. The empty space within the Box, is to represent a Blank Empty Cheque. A Blank cheque isn't worth anything until it's been Signed & Dated! Thus this work has been signed instead of Temporary Pencil but in Permanent Ink.
This is also a tribute to the host of the British show Sir Michael "Terry" Wogan (1938-2016) who passed away earlier this year. Sketch Project: Blankety _____, Checkbook & Pen
