    Greetings fellow art lovers. I would like to thank the Olympus Committe for their inspired and well informed decision. I can now reveal that this influential and seminal piece will shortly be available to important Galleries and International Institutions for display.

    The piece must be displayed in a very specific manner at the insistance of the Artist.

    It comprises three identical prints forming a Tiptych. The elements representing Past, Present and Future.

    These three elements are to be hung and displayed facing the wall. Members of the public and members of the gallery staff must never see the front of the piece. The Artist will supervise the installation to ensure this is the case.

    It can be seen that the elements combine to make a four part Triptych comprising Past, Present, Future and Never.

    The Artist will accept offers for the work by private bid.

    Snaartworks.
    Pete, I knew I could rely upon you to make a suitable acceptance speech. I love the bit about hanging the works face against the wall!
    John

      Brilliant!

        so I suggest the term Olympussy be granted in perpetuity to all such winners
        Great suggestion.

            In the light of one certain 'Woman in the Woods' image that was posted by an entrant to this competition, I'm just a touch worried that when the gutter press read this suggestion that they will believe this Forum to be a den of iniquity, a veritable sodom and gomorrah, nay even a place of debauchery. Woe is eye's, for nowt worse than the front page of the ye olde Dailie Fail will befall me.

            Oh well, here comes the van with triangular wheels . . . oh sorry, it's actually the Christies Fine Art Auctioneers van come for my artwork!

            Regards

                    I accept it will be tough, but I'm convinced we are up to the challenge of taking on:

                    Taylor Wessing Winning Portraits

                    Google it and see what you think
