  4. Albert Ettori Je profite du choix de la directrice de la Saatchi Gallery pour m'étonner qu'à ce jour, et sauf erreur de ma part, AUCUNE DES MES OEUVRES N'A ÉTÉ CHOISIE ! Ca me laisse rêveur, et, c'est proprement surréaliste.

  5. Juliet Vles Almost through now and a very equivocal ending of a great and unique idea. What might have been an utopian project has petered out into a rather insipid publicity stunt, presenting, over and over again, the same dozen worthy epigones of the classical moderne - artists who certainly merit their place in a global best of, but should not dominate it in this boring way. And why are so many of the collections cluttered up with conventional photography, photomontage and, god help us, female nudes? To

  6. Juliet Vles Too retro for words.
    We are living in exiting times and the next twenty years will see technical, social and, hopefully, ethical changes which will have a basic impact on our way of live and on the destiny of our planet. From a hundred professional curators from all over the world, only a very few seem to be aware of this fact. On SOL (Saatchi on-line) there are enough good and intelligent artists representing a contemporary and even futuristic spirit - not only in the choice of their media (
    October 24, 2012 at 7:50 am
  7. Juliet Vles (which by now is really no criterion for modernity any more) but in the substance of their expression. Some of them made it, marginally, to the charts. Most are not mentioned at all.
    No useful discussion in sight, either. The curators keep icily silent, and the comments-rubric is monopolized by the usual jokers and self-advertisers. The interesting commentators have long since given up.
    October 24, 2012 at 7:51 am
  8. Juliet Vles To avoid this kind of antediluvian main stream mediocrity we need, not better artists, but better curators. We need courageous and visionary professionals able to canalize new ideas and new feeling into new concepts of art. 100 curators/100 days might have been a beginning, and Rebecca Wilson and her staff deserve a medal for having offered such a fantastic forum to progress. Please dear Rebecca, do not give up! All the best to all of you

  9. Rebecca Wilson Dear Juliet. Thanks for your comments. The 100 curators involved in this project have chosen between them nearly 900 artists. This is not a narrow selection and I think if you look carefully through the artists chosen you'll find a very broad range of work which reflects all aspects of contemporary art. You may not like much of what you see in art making today but that's a different question. The curators have chosen excellent work by artists working in their chosen mediums and genres. You may n

  10. jeanrobert p be'ffort I concur with the Braniac Juliet Vies, However, I am neither a "usual-jokester" nor a "self-advertiser" but a serious critic of a flailing attempt by self-absorbed curators who are in fact not finding the art but stroking the style. Duchamp's "Art is Masturbation" (Now on Online) couldn't be more poignant. The media has supplanted the message and the spirit in art scrolls lifeless on the page.
    October 24, 2012 at 8:54 am
  11. jeanrobert p be'ffort I think if you gave each curator only one selection you would have had less repetition and redundancy. You would have 100 unique selections rather than 900 versions of pablum.

  12. jeanrobert p be'ffort P.S. I didn't realize Brooklyn , New York was located in the United Kingdom.
    October 24, 2012 at 9:11 am
  13. Rebecca Wilson Thanks for your insightful comments JeanRobert.
    You are quite right: Brooklyn isn't in the UK. This is a selection of British painters.

  14. angelo dorigo mamma mia juliet che sviolinata...(I can not find the right words in English)
    ..and what would be the kind of art advocated by juliet the next two decades? the painting? assemblage-collage? innovate only for innovation in itself can lead to ugliness incommensurable

    the idea alone is not enough for the work of art, it takes something more...
    the artist, that with his art, any kind of art, will be able to coexist beauty (in rare cases also ugliness) with the inspiring idea

    a good painting it'll
    October 24, 2012 at 9:38 am
  15. angelo dorigo always a good painting
    a work of art will always be a work of art (even if it's a female nude)
    and a crap always a crap, even though innovative

  16. Ali Haghani I like this collection and 12Xtwelve. Inspiring.

  17. Michael Lentz ,,it's neither the material nor the technique (nor the nude) that makes the artist, but sth like inner necessity'' etc. Unfortunately this has been largely forgotten (by the protagonists of Fukuyama's Posthistory). Logically the old figure of the artist as an actor and illustrator of ,,history'' has been replaced by the ,,artist without work''. Curators are servants - or inventors - of this new cultural modus. Probably dOCUMENTA is a perfect example for my idea. On the other hand, ,,artists wi
    October 24, 2012 at 11:11 am
  18. Michael Lentz artists without work'' are (quasi) not present on saatchi online largely dominated by (good) amateurs (amateur = artist producing works). Nonetheless this crucial difference may explain why the 100 curators chose what they chose. Most of us were bored by void collections, whereas boring voids are exactly the ,pieces' produced by postmodern ,artists without works'.

  27. Rosin Fairfield Rebecca, girls and boys! Rebecca, i can relate to 5 of your 10 picks. Otherwise throughout the entire 100 days period i felt affinity with the picks of Mrs Richter and Linnenkohl. I like the drawings of Mr Dragan Vuk Racic (picked sometimes) and am very happy to see the wonderful paintings of Mrs McCabe (whom i complimented liked profusely since millenia:). We are artists, often completely detached from an art dealer's mind set but it is true that to invite 100 currators is a wonderful way to g
    October 25, 2012 at 4:47 pm
  28. Rosin Fairfield a wonderful way to get people with such to visit our site here. Cheers
    October 25, 2012 at 4:47 pm
  29. Rosin Fairfield Juliet :D, your works remind of something i drew sometime ago:

    Good continuation! Cheerz!

    October 25, 2012 at 4:55 pm
  30. Rosin Fairfield P.S. About 100 currators: am pleased BTW to see so many WOMEN -deciding, choosing, in a world where so far mostly men decide and choose. If they don't start to mimick men's dickheaded power-drunk assholish elitism those women may choose differently for a new world: with Feeling!

    October 25, 2012 at 6:39 pm
  32. Juliet Vles Dear Rebecca, thanks for your answer. I did not so much object to the narrowness of the selection as, all in all, to its lack of substance and (artistic) preoccupation with its contemporary context. My personal preferences have nothing to do with it, you are quite right there, of course.
    October 26, 2012 at 2:17 am
  33. Juliet Vles Hi Angelo, I looked up “sviolinata” which seems to mean “adulation” or “base flattery”. ???? As I see it, the only person who might be flattered by my comments would be a practising masochist…
    The kind of artist I’d like to see emerge would combine instinctive feeling for atmosphere, form and colour with the intellectual capacity to position his art into a contemporary or futuristic context. The choice of the medium is of course without importance.
    October 26, 2012 at 2:21 am
  34. Antonia Peña Congratulations Rebecca!! I really like your work!!
    Could you pls review my work and write me your impressions!!!
    Thanks so much.

  35. Michael Lentz After all, Mrs. Vles has been the ONLY artist CHOSEN by 100 curators who at the same time mentioned/criticized the project's flaws. BRAVO. ALL the others artists chosen were very COWARD or they hadn't anything to say. Sad enough, saatchi will reward them. Contemporary artbusiness works with servile, sycophantic, slavish ,artists'. That's the way Art History is written after the end of history.
    October 27, 2012 at 12:26 am

  42. Michael Price Dear Rebecca,
    I would like to know if there is any reason why one should have a portfolio on this site. Looking at the curators choices, no one has gone beyond their personal taste. A bit of this - a bit of that. I have uploaded over 50 paintings to your site. From my own website, many people find me and email me, with very positive results. From your site, nothing. The late Barry Flanagan was one of my collectors so I suppose my work is not without merit.
    Sincerely, Michael Price

  54. Prodeep Mookerjee As an artist I am daunted by the selection - is infantile in? Is Expression passe to today's high priests. Would you really like this stuff on your walls? Sarah and Filippo perhaps.
    November 21, 2012 at 6:34 am
  55. Jill Lorraine Thank you for a beautiful collection! Interesting array of comments here- art appreciation is so, um, entirely subjective, isn't it? What are we, politicians here? Noooo, or at least I hope not.... My tastes are happily eclectic, which is why I love Kara Walker, Lucian Freud, Remedios Varo, and now, Charlotte Evans....

  77. Hans Simtanda Caspersen Dear Curator,

    I have been offered to join the A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery located in The New York Gallery Building in the middle of Manhattan, which is a great chance to get especially because I have not had luck with Danish galleries.

    There is an acceptance fee of 2,000,- us dollars therefore I thought if you could check out my Saatchi portfolio and hopefully buy a painting, so i can afford to pay the admission fee. It would mean a lot!

    Thank you in advance! Best wishes Hans
