It Hurts sees Matthew Collings bring his ironic and informed eye to, as the subtitle proudly proclaims, New York Art .

It Hurts sees Matthew Collings bring his ironic and informed eye to, as the subtitle proudly proclaims, New York Art from Warhol to Now. New York has long been a prime pole of world art and not only because it has long been the centre of the world art market. It Hurts offers all the pleasures one always expects from Collings: stylistically knowledgeable, easy-to-read, arch, questioning, pithy, but suffers, as does all his work, from the overbearing feeling that we are simply reading a shopping list of artists and a digest of their key concerns.

Matthew Collings (born 1955) is a British art critic, writer, broadcaster, and artist. He is married to Emma Biggs, with whom he collaborates on art works. Born in London in 1955, Collings studied at Byam Shaw School of Art, and Goldsmith's College, both in London.

by Matthew Collings (Author), Ian MacMillan (Photographer). Well, we all know (Matthew Collings more than most) that New York isn't London - but unfortunately that means that MC's gloriously aphoristic tour of the Brit Art scene in the excllent Blimey! doesn't really translate when it moves across the pond. This is heavier, this book, not as funny, without the same sort of a-gem quality. If you want a great insider's guide to the New York art scene, check out Anthony Haden-Guest's True Colors instead.

Applying the same perceptive wit that made Blimey such a success, Matthew Collings turns his attention to the New York art scene covering the critics, artists and dealers from the 1960s through to the present day. From Warhol to the super-brats of the eighties like Koons and Schnabel right up to the young players of the nineties, they are all brought to life in this readable but thoughtful book.

It Hurts sees Matthew Collings bring his ironic and informed eye to, as the subtitle proudly proclai. more ms, New York Art from Warhol to Now. Collings takes up the story after Rothko, Frankenthaler, Pollock and all the artists valorised by Clement Greenberg led the pack and starts from when Warhol's Pop Art began to dominate.

If you liked Tom Wolfe's THE PAINTED WORD, you'll love IT HURTS. Collings' style is a cross between Wolfe's and the Warhol Diaries. His stream-of-consciousness tour of Artland is a travelogue which bites back. I laughed out loud, though in the end found myself deeply disturbed. Must reading!
