“I’m really, really offended by what Kevin Rudd had to say about this picture.”

Eleven year old Olympia Nelson comments on the furore over the the nude portrait of her which appears on this month’s cover of Art Monthly. The same report on the issue – hey, the bandwagon is crowded but there is evidently still plenty of room for politicians in desperate need of public approval – also contains the immortal sentence:

“Ms Tankard Reist said it was hard to talk about art restoring dignity when another image in the magazine showed a woman being fellated by an octopus.”
