Picture Piece: Art and Advertising
Art and Advertising - grounds for divorce?
Art and Advertising used to be happy together: she worked out her personal problems making things, which kept her off the gin and looked chic in his office; he went out into the big, wide world to earn enough of a crust to keep them both very comfortably, thank you. But something has gone wrong – now she feels he doesn’t appreciate the effort she invests in her things – worse, he doesn’t realise that ultimately her things matter more than his stupid adverts. He feels his repressed creative urges rising; he thinks that he can make things too, just as well as her – and anyway, who earns the money in this household? It looks like divorce is on the cards.
