Billingham is somehow good. Tiny landscapes, pictures of his baby boy, a mix of formats , black and white or colour, a bit of a wolfgang tillmans vibe, animals in the zoo. It's hard to work out what's good about them, but a nagging suspicion is that you are looking at something untrumped up, a way of seeing the world that tells you something you want to see/hear. As dennis hopper says about andy warhol, on a recent tv show, an artist is a person who points his finger and says this is art. I cant find this quote anywhere. But it seems right, and I think Billingham points his finger at the right spot.
