Today’s the day when buying begins at the Summer Exhibition Preview party. Everyone is going round clutching their little red books and checking out the prices. I am doing it myself. There’s a nice Michael Craig Martin print of an iPhone. Only £960. I really like the Ackroyd and Harvey photograph of their grass portrait (they work in grass). It’s £5,000. Too much for me. Frank Bowling has got some great work in the exhibition, but it’s way beyond my means. I hope someone will buy the Sean Scully, the price of which is on application. There’s a really good set of prints by Stephen Chambers narrating the The Life and Loves of Casanova. £6,000. Part of the point of the exhibition is that there’s something for everyone.
