Could do with a lick of paint. That Corten rusty steel is used to the point of saturation those days. I appreciate the forms but not the execution

Wonder how long before either a DUPer fundamentalist mentalist or some weirdie beardie from Isis feels they are a blasphemous representation of the prophets ballix and attacks them with a sledgehammer, an acetylene torch or a wheen of semtex. :shock:

Every major public (i.e. publicly funded) project must include an element relating to art. And like all art, I suspect people will love it or hate it (or not give a flying fox about it). It is what it is.

money could have been spent far better on practically anything else

a coincidence that its tucked away in a part of a ground a majority of match night spectators won't see?

Are these ironic pieces all located on the path up to the section of the ground frequented by our non-doms? Or are there some for the working man or woman to appreciate?

Yes & No. Feck The Tinnies.

On an entirely practical & serious note, I believe this to be an absolute waste of public money, a disgraceful use of £40,000 if that is an accurate figure. It is of doubtful value as a piece of art - a subject that always baffles me admittedly.

Further, why a publicly funded artwork is positioned in a place that only a minute proportion of the public will ever see it is a strange matter in itself.

This sort of crap makes it far more difficult to defend objections to cuts in the public funding of the arts in general. A nonsense.

All that apart it lokos feckin' hideous, I will however take a closer look & report my findings. >EW

I could do a bronze cast of what I managed in trap 2 this morning ... now that folks was a veritable work of art ... I'd only charge 10 grand for it as well ...

A total waste of time, material and money.

Just so some fluff-brained f**kwit could look at it, rub their chin in a sage manner, then spout some pish about what it represents.


That 40K (if accurate) could have been better spent on a nurse's wage.

And replace the shambolic monstrosities with billboards for local tourist sites that may catch the eye of visiting supporters... so they may decide some time to go visit Bushmills, the causeway, the mournes, the fermanagh lakes, errigal etc... y'know - something f**king useful.

It's difficult to enter into this work because of how the sublime beauty of this four year old's arsecandle contextualizes the remarkable handling of light. With regard to the issue of content, the iconicity and purity of line spatially undermines the exploration of montage elements ... quite like when your middle finger bursts through a cheap 2 ply bog roll after a doss of the squids which has peppered the entire bowl after a dodgy pie and 10 pints - unwelcome.

Although I am not a sculpter, I think that the metaphorical resonance of this horse shít notates the essentially transitional quality of a rather colourful car crash involving an obese farm yard animal and Bugatti Veyron at 247 mph.

The sublime beauty of the figurative-narrative line-space matrix threatens to penetrate the distinctive formal juxtapositions of a grand aul follow through after what you thought, neah hoped was just a fart.
