Mind-boggling sculptures, paintings to make the spirits soar . . . modern art hasn't looked so good in years, says Alastair Sooke.

(...) This week, the artist Richard Wright won the £25,000 cheque that accompanies Britain's most prestigious annual art prize. His contribution to this year's exhibition? An incredibly intricate painting in gold leaf that covers an entire wall of a gallery inside Tate Britain like a bolt of the finest damask wallpaper. A glorious, eminently civilised work, it looks gossamer-delicate, as though it has been woven out of sunbeams.
(...) It speaks of the exaltation of the human spirit, of our finer instincts and loftier ambitions, of the ability of the soul to soar and sing. It heralds nothing less than the return of beauty to modern art.

Eu aprecio a beleza na arte, e este mural é simpático e decorativo. Mas tanta emoção, tanto lirismo por um borrão aleatório que qualquer criança aprende a fazer espalhando tinta num papel e dobrando-o em quatro?
Rorschach teria alguma coisa a dizer sobre este crítico de arte.
