Nothing new

Probably to you, all art-lovers and co, it will be nothing new, but I just discovered another valuable place on the net.

While searching for Tracey Emin‘s* artworks the first thing that popped up on my (not-google) search engine list was the Saatchi Galley in London. I was pleased to see that they also have the site Saatchi Online where you can see (and buy if you have a few thousand pounds you don’t know what to do :P ) the artworks of a vast number of contemporary artists.

Note: It sometimes loads sort of slow (could be smth with my internet..).

* Tracey Emin, contemporary artist, mother – british, father – turkish, youth – not that lovely, artistic style – expressive, confessional, 18+.
I’m just reading her so called autobiography. A very honest book I guess. I recommend the part Fatherland, where she tells pieces of stories while being in Turkey (not a travel guide).
Click for review from The Guardian.

“We are freer than the people sitting opposite us for the prosecution because we can say everything we like, and we do, but those people sitting there say only what political censorship allows them to say.

Their mouths are sewn shut.”
