My fourth and absolutely my last attempt for Turnip Prize glory. Although you never know. After all, the Tories shouldn’t have a monopoly on U-turns, flip-flops, deceiving the voters, or otherwise go against their word.
After complete and utter failure in 2016 and 2017, here is my third and possibly my last attempt for Turnip Prize glory.
I should have been mowing the lawn, but instead I created my entry for the 2017 Turnip Prize. Early viewers of the work immediately grasped the referencing of Magritte and its significance, which prompted a vibrant cultural debate.
In 2007, the Turnip Prize disqualified Banksy from competition for “trying too hard”. In 2016, I think I probably tried too hard.
The Turnip Prize is “a spoof art award of the lesser known Turner Prize” run by the New Inn, Wedmore in Somerset. My entries are doomed to failure.
