Untitled

Looking back at my last post and thinking about John Cage, although I really like 4'33", I think the best thing from him (that I'm aware of) is his quote: "I have nothing to say, and I'm saying it".

My friend T really dislikes artists who call their work 'Untitled', and I've just read on another friend's blog that she too, feels the same.

I totally disagree!! It took me ages to decide what to call the images I had in our recent exhibition; I tried to think of something deep, meaningful and 'arty', but I just really wanted not to call them anything. I know that for some artists "Untitled' is just a cop out, laziness on their part, but I felt that my images said everything I wanted to say: there's nothing here, there is nothing to see, there is only emptiness. I didn't want to give them an 'arty' strapline; they are what they are, nothing, nameless, 'untitled'!
