Odd Nerdrum, the Norwegian artist sentenced to two years in jail for tax evasion, won’t be allowed to keep painting in prison. He’s appealing his sentence, but if it stands, the 67-year-old Nerdrum will have to leave his brushes and easels behind.
Newspaper Aftenposten reported that the Justice Ministry has stressed that convicted prisoners aren’t allowed to continue their business activities while held in custody. For someone like Nerdrum, who has lived off income from sales of his artwork, his passion for painting will thus conflict with regulations governing prison terms.
It’s different for other convicts, who have been allowed to paint, read or conduct approved hobbies as a means of passing the time in jail. Aftenposten noted that convicted robber Johnny Thendrup, for example, sentenced to 13 years in prison for the commando-style NOKAS heist in 2004, took up his old hobby of painting while his case was pending. He has since continued to paint while incarcerated at the Ila prison for high-risk criminals outside Oslo. more »

The Dark Arts Edition: Anglo-Filing! Murdoch's News of the World Spins Out of Control Brings Down British PM and Hundreds MoreJuly 7th, 2011 • Paul H-O Magnolia Treet - The Opinions Expressed Are Not Yours or His - a new column
First off, I would like to say welcome and thank you for reading my new column. GalleryBeat Media, as Mr. H-O likes to call it, has been quiet and rather dusty as he chases after documentary film subjects while letting this perfectly nice piece of real estate right here lay fallow. I told Mr. H-O that I would be happy to take care of his little estate in return for room, board and cultural opinion/enlightenment in his squalid little guest house.
I have been intrigued by the arrest of Dominique Straus-Kahn here in New York and what a mess it's become because it was about sex. We don't know what kind of sex took place but if the news reports are nominally factual it would seem that Mons. Straus-Kahn left his manly signature splashed about his posh hotel room. Even discounting the maid's contention of rape to say, half rape, it's still a mess and if you don't know who DSK is then you may have to search International Monetary Fund ex-chairman and likely-dashed-hope-future president of France. Now the accuser has brought suit against Rupert Murdoch's NY Post for calling her a prostitute on the front page.
What has this to do with Paris or London or art?
