Pictures framed with poo and other spiritual experiences: Blake Prize

The Blake Prize is kooky. It’s essentially an art prize for works with a religious bent but its parameters are very, very broad. This year’s shortlist includes two men masturbating framed by poo and a convoy of military vehicles with Jesus as the driver/cargo. I love how the judges have the balls to show some gruesome imagery and there’s a glorious mix of emerging and established artists.

Controversy for its own sake doesn’t pump my nads, but here are some works that particularly spoke to me. I think I like their simplicity and innate holiness.

I have lived here a long time but I don’t know where here is, Tanya Chaitown, 2013

Cups of Nun Chai; a Memorial, Alana Hunt, 2013
