Description - Playing to the Gallery Postcards by Grayson Perry
Acclaimed as 'a visual and intellectual delight' (Time Out), Grayson Perry'sPlaying to the Galleryallows us to truly appreciate art as he answers the questions that might occur to us in a gallery but seem too embarrassing to ask. In Grayson's words, 'It's easy to feel insecure around art and its appreciation, as though we cannot enjoy certain artworks if we don't have a lot of academic and historical knowledge. But if there's one message that I want you to take away it's that anybody can enjoy art and anybody can have a life in the arts - even me! For even I, an Essex transvestite potter, have been let in by the artworld mafia.' This set of 36 postcards, each featuring an original artwork from the book, embodies all the talent, humour, intelligence and relevance of Grayson Perry.
