If you're lonely

Martin Creed, Work No. 958, 2008, Acrylic on canvas, 30" x 24" x 3/4".

I admire Martin Creed's artwork, with its bombastic silliness. But I wasn't aware of his writing until a friend pointed it out (thanks Stephen). Things like this:

I say: 'Fuck off, assholes!'

Assholes... they are something to get excited about, something to work for.

The text continues in this vein. Its hilarious. From Martin Creed's work #470 (read the full text)
