New Talent / Old Talent

In the Camden Review today, there’s an interview with Jonathan Miller who is going to have a show of his art works at The Cross Street Gallery N1 2BA starting November 8.

He says ‘ Of course you have to bring in new talent. I was once new talent. But they all think that when you become old talent you become old-fashioned talent. I’m just as good as when I was younger. In fact slightly better, because I’ve seen so much more’.

He’s referring to the world of television and film.

That’s what is good about the art world ( mostly ), where old talent is appreciated.

I live in London, I can see the top of the Shard from my window. I like making things and I mainly produce paintings which I exhibit and sell if the right person comes along!

  1. Thank you for this – the whole article is well worth reading and I’ll go and see the exhibition, too.

    ‘Old’ talent i.e. been around a while, maybe often still appreciated in the world of watercolour but I’m not sure it gets considered much in ceramics or contemporary art unless a totally new style is adopted.
