"Art and Australia" is Australias most glossy art magazine. Like any other established art magazines and art galleries in Australia this magazine is very limited, promoting only a number of Australian "born and bred" artist - assholes.
This 3 pages - right - about Ture Sjolander was pre-paid from a grant - $10.000 -
It is nearly impossible to break in to the Australian establishment of art. Most artist are standing in a kinda queue awaiting individual turns. Its a fucking terrible system farbeyond all questions about any kind of quality, other than " who do you know".
Not to mention all this university artist/teachers - the utmost untalented- who is sticking together like fools and occupying all this Regional Art Galleries. Damn fatheads!
Can you imagine science working under similar rules and conditions?
So go and paint your fucking gumtrees and "distinguised people" and kiss and lick the gallery owners including the National Art Galleries.
The system is corrupted and in a very similar way to what Sovjet Union demanded from the artists in Sovjet.
This shit "on demand" can not continue!
We know who the next Australian bastard artist is, - getting all the support next.
This art policy is really fucked.
The media in Australia have a responsibility to review this attitude or Australias domestic art life shall get as bad reputation as the refugee issues have today. But the media journalists are just as corrupted as well...
The Art itself can never ever be feministic nor can science or politics be, and yet the Regional Art Galleries are mainly dominated by female directors which severly affect the acquisition of artworks and the policy for the art collection.

Real Fine Art in the 21th Century.
"Don't let the Contemporary art galleries, museums, media and the glossy art magazines fool you to believe that Fine Art is a commodity or even necessarily an object, a painting or a "piece-of-art". You shall later-on find out it was only a "piece-of-shit" you acquired in the so called Fine Art Gallery, for your boring lounge-room or horryfying obsolete and tax-evasive business-suite, for a stupid price. If you really gonna invest do it right !
Real Fine Art in the 21th Century is SCIENCE, as it always has been, in the history of Fine Art."
All this stuff and mythology is only maintained by a very small and clicky group of "pure nationalistic/born, bred & inbred"aussies who gives a shit about the rest and the majority of the Australian population.
But if you need to make a PhD in a university they will force you to read and listen to all this limited bullshit.
All the news media is full of this boring "history" - a totally one eyed view.
Its a terrible obsolete journalistic activity.
Most of the broadcasters in the main media should be fired after a period of max. 3 year and give the media space to new people.
