Interesting observations about the Mostyn Open here in CoS today, which brings to mind a regularly recurring conversation…. To be fair, for all the people there are in the art world, it is a very small world in so many respects. It is probably almost impossible to judge any open competition without coming across work by someone connected to you, so accusations of nepotism are perhaps therefore inevitable. Nevertheless, this does have a decidedly odd pong about it.
The maths are interesting, too.
