Mark D responds on Nottingham Evening Post site here (4.12.07):
"A film of the artist dresssed as a bear and walking around an empty gallery with people looking in proved the fact that when people see a prat dressed as a bear they point at him and say look at the prat in the bear outfit. Genius! "

Liverpool Echo (15.9.07) on Turner Prize with Stuckist view here.

Its most vociferous critics, the rather silly Stuckists, have cornered the market in Turner criticism. I have some sympathy with their call for "renewal of spiritual values for art, culture and society to replace the emptiness of postmodernism". It's just a shame that the alternative they offer is second-rate figurative painting. Such critics have their eyes tightly shut to any creative possibilities offered by the best conceptual art. The argument should not be about form, or the merits of painting versus conceptual art. Good art, real art, can be any of these things. What matters is passion and content, and the ideas behind much conceptual art are all too often intellectually half-baked.
Sue Hubbard, New Statesman, 7 May 2007
