What's Sauce For The Goose... [Jan. 6th, 2015|02:21 pm]
Tony Grist
We received a belated Christmas card this morning featuring a woodcut by Eric Gill- the sculptor and polemicist- who was also a sex abuser of Savilian shamelessness. Apparently the dodginess of the artist hasn't tainted the art.

Same seems to be true of the movies of Roman Polanski.

It's a generous doctrine. I like it. We should apply it across the board.

So, are you ready?

All together now,

"Tie me kangaroo down, sport,
Tie me kangaroo down..."

We have a giant sculpture by Gill in our university building foyer, depicting Jesus ejecting the money lenders.

I have a little book on art by Gill. It's very fierce. He hates the modern world, loves Catholicism and the Middle Ages...

Rolf is the king of the novelty song- or was- since his oeuvre no longer officially exists.

There is a parody entitled: 'Bestiality's Best'!

I'll leave it to your own imagination! :o)

Much much worse than Saville - his own daughters?
I'm not making excuses for Saville, but I there was a considerable difference in the two cultures in which they lived

I can't get my head round Gill. I've tried and I just can't.

What did he think he was doing?

It's not just what he might have thought he was doing.
It''s also - how did he get away with it ?

His family were under his thumb, his friends were loyal and beyond the inner circle who knew?

Although, unlike Savile (allegedly), he stopped short of necrophilia.

Phil Spector's murder conviction doesn't seem to have prompted a purge of his work from the airwaves.

Given that the composer Gesualdo da Venosa (1560-1613) who murdered his wife and her lover after catching them in flagrante still gets airtime, should we be surprised?

I do wish LJ had a "like" button as Facebook does.
