Art is not what is being judged
12 April 2020 | by cedarwellscomSee all my reviews

You can pretty much tell which artist the judges will select because they will often choose a certain Sloane type regardless of the art. It's a common theme now in this very class biased show. Not altogether surprising for the art world but it makes shameless television. I imagine that is why Frank Skinner quit the job because it is so obvious that talented artists get overlooked. Really really poor and shame on you Sky. It's high time that they replace the two non-artists in the judging panel and replace them with either artists or art school teachers.
