Sir Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) is a big name artist here in Australia; one of his paintings was purchased last year for $5.4 million. So it's noteworthy that a Melbourne artist, Andy Wear, has fried a sketch by Nolan and sold it on ebay. Wear claims that he was inspired to do so by a dream:
"In the dream I had an exhibition of drawings which had all been crumbed and deep-fried. I'd never seen anything like that before," Wear said.
Art has lost its way, has it not?
