Simon de Pury disconnects for me as well, perma-grin caricature of an elite art aficionado. Tim Gunn from P.Runway has more character that comes out (granted a bit of a caricature); but he has more opinion and charisma. The criticism from the jurists lacks any sort of visual history/context of all the visual arts unfortunately.

Printed Matter would have been perfect, or even the other publishers mentioned by AFC. I’ve seen many recognized fine artists do work for perfume, vodka and magazines but they where sought out for ‘their look’ (as it functions for a mass/commercial audience or they never would have been asked by publisher/corporation). How does the ‘quality’/perception of the work or artist change as the work functions as directly as many commercial commissions out there. The function is the same as illustration/design- all of which is varied and not ‘slick’; but perhaps packaged slickly? Today, in order to be a recognized commercial artist one must have an individual voice, just as a fine artist (post 1960). And there is, at times, a fine line between the two. This is intriguing to me as there is a desire in all the visual arts to connect to a (varied) audience.
