Is there gonna be something else? There’s something more! Lovely double buzzer There’s been nothing to see – for hours What’s that down there? Nothing’s happening Mister Gress He won’t buzzer because it’s about him Yes, I don’t have to press the buzzer. Sh*t Now! We’re looking pretty stupid now. I believe, without having to ask my colleagues from the jury, that we owe you an apology for buzzering so premturely. Agreed? Again, thank you very much. Congratulations! Corinne, thanks very much for thinking about me. This took me by surprise, not because you’ve painted me, But because the surprise effect didn’t show until the very end. You’ve been saving that for last. It would have taken a bit longer, I‘ve never managed to finish it so quickly It would have taken longer… We’re all agreed: We’ve been too hasty and I’m terribly sorry about that Sorry. This is the worst thing I could have imagined: that I might have to cry. Not, that you’d push the buzzers. What emotions! I can do it way better. What’s the title of the picture? Gilbert Bligg Gilbert Bligg or Bligg Gilbert How do you know that? I suppose Gilbert Bligg or Bligg Gilbert The title is also the concept of the picture Gilbert The picture is Gilbert upside down. If you reverse the word Gilbert you get Treblig But there’s a tiny mistake Since Mister Gress is a bit old school, one can always add G. in front, resulting in „Tresbligg“ (very Bligg) I always knew we had something in common, Mister Gress Our age, supposedly. May I? Of course. Corinne, I felt sorry for you from the start. You know why? I cannot watch a artist in a hurry. It’s hurting me. I wish you could observed the picture from a distance and approach it again. From the start, I sensed that you were being rushed. And it hurt me. The beginning was fantastic, when you painted Monsieur Gress …and it was funny too when you applied some hairspray to fix his hair. Very funny indeed! … and perfectly captured, too. Then you started painting black on black. And I just didn’t get it anymore. I’m a simple person and didn’t get it. In the end, I’m terribly sorry. The result is the bomb. Corinne, If I may add my two cents It took too long until anything happened. That’s why I put some pressure on. You’re skillfull and a very good painter. But much more must be happening I need to be surprised constantly And I wouldn’t have pressed the buzzer. But it got really really lengthy this way. Jonny, yes or no? I felt really sorry for you being pressed for time like that, but it’s a no. Mister Gress, It’s a Yes of course Susanne: I like you as a person. You‘ve got personality and wanted to shuffle up something that’s been rigid and cemented You’ve wanted to slow down our rushed society that‘s asking for fast results.
And for that, you get a Yes from me. Corinne, you’re an artist who’s taken us by surprise It’s a clear Yes from me. Look, Corinne. You’ve mastered it superbly. You got a Yes. Name a price for your picture, I’m willing to buy it off you. We’ll meet up later backstage. A big hand of applause for Corinne!
